2 Peter 2:6-10

In Peter’s final Old Testament illustration of God’s sparing “righteous” Lot in bringing justice upon Sodom and Gomorrah, we find that God’s sparing anyone from judgment is based purely on His mercy. Lot’s righteousness, like our own, still find’s itself in need of grace. Through the lens of the Gospel, we see that Lot’s story points to Jesus, the true righteous One, who would be destroyed for the sake of the unrighteous. God is able to save from judgment those of us who, though unrighteous and undeserving like Lot, trust in God’s grace through Jesus alone.

2 Peter 2:6-10

if by turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah to ashes he condemned them to extinction, making them an example of what is going to happen to the ungodly; and if he rescued righteous Lot, greatly distressed by the sensual conduct of the wicked (for as that righteous man lived among them day after day, he was tormenting his righteous soul over their lawless deeds that he saw and heard); then the Lord knows how to rescue the godly from trials, and to keep the unrighteous under punishment until the day of judgment, and especially those who indulge in the lust of defiling passion and despise authority.

Bold and willful, they do not tremble as they blaspheme the glorious ones,

1 Peter 1:12

It was revealed to them that they were serving not themselves but you, in the things that have now been announced to you through those who preached the good news to you by the Holy Spirit sent from heaven, things into which angels long to look.

Genesis 19:15-16

As morning dawned, the angels urged Lot, saying, “Up! Take your wife and your two daughters who are here, lest you be swept away in the punishment of the city.” But he lingered. So the men seized him and his wife and his two daughters by the hand, the Lord being merciful to him, and they brought him out and set him outside the city.
