Why did God save Lot out of Sodom?
There are several facets to what occurred when God dealt with Sodom and Gomorrah by destroying it with fire and brimstone. We are privileged to see the whole picture with Sodom regarding Lot, Abraham and even the LORD. Abraham’s conversation with God at the end of chapter 18 demonstrates God’s willingness to spare many for the sake of the righteous around them, but there were fewer than ten righteous. Yet Genesis 19:29 states that “God remembered Abraham, and sent Lot out of the midst of the overthrow…” Though Abraham never expressed it to the LORD, He knew that at the heart of Abraham’s request was the deliverance of Lot. We could say that Lot was delivered because of Abraham, and we can be encouraged that likewise, the Lord knows the heart of our requests even if we can’t express them properly.
