And as it was in the days of Noe, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man. They did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, and the flood came, and destroyed them all. Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded; – Luke 17:26-28
In Noah’s day and Lot’s they eat, they drank, they married, they bought, they sold, they planted and they built. There is really nothing wrong with any of those. However if this is all you do, then there is an issue as Dr. Havner would say. That is where America is at. They do a lot of things, some okay and some not so okay. The big issue is their is no reference to God, no acknowledgment of God in what they do. If there is any reference to God, they get very nervous. It is no wonder that the average worldling understands very little of Bible love, mercy, forgiveness, redemption, etc. Just look at the average article from the media and you can see they are clueless about God.
We as Christians can get the same way really quick. We can start to live our lives less and less with reference to God. You can go to church and do a lot of religious activity without reference to God. Ultimately the world and Sodom and Gomorah were destroyed because they failed to acknowledge God. We need to make sure as we get busy in this world doing the daily grind that we don’t leave God out. We need to always keep the Lord first in our lives.
