The Church Is Holy

January 27, 2008
In a day when sexual ethics have all but been abandoned, the idea of moral purity may seem quaint. But that purity is a key component of a strong church, a church whose members live lives free from the entanglements of sin, or as Paul puts it, lives lived "in sanctification and honor." Today we will hear Paul's admonition to the church at Thessalonica.

The path of a Christian's life is not strewn with roses. Affliction and trials come to all who name the name of Jesus. In fact, the Bible says we are appointed to tribulations. That was Paul's word to the church at Thessalonica in ancient Greece, and now it is his word to us today.

Left to ourselves, we tend to focus on what is best for number one, that is, us. But Jesus set an example of servant-leadership, and He expects His church to model that servanthood. Today: a look at how service to others must be the mark by which the world senses the presence of God in any local church.

Some think of the church as ancient architecture and even more ancient traditions. But the real church is the Body of Christ on earth. And that Body is alive. Infused by the power of the Holy Spirit, your church should be the vehicle through which God works in this world. Ever wonder what would happen if God came to your church?

When the present is filled with troubles and the future looks no better, many ask, "What can I do about it?" Today you will hear a challenge to do something: something that will have eternal repercussions...in your life, and the lives of those you care about.

The future is uncertain, and all of us need wisdom to make the choices sure to face us in the days ahead. Whether personal or national decisions, we dare not enter the unknown without the wisdom only God can provide. And wisdom is another of the gifts God gave to us when He sent Christ into the world.

When faced with the ravages of war, perhaps man's deepest longing is for peace. Although human peace is at best temporary, Jesus said "My peace I give unto you." And that is a gift without price.

Things and circumstances can give us happiness, but only an inner wellspring can bring forth joy. Joy can be felt in the midst of tragedy and loss; yes, joy can be experienced through tears. And joy is what Christ came to bring to all those who would believe in Him.

As Christmas approaches, stores are hoping you and I will give in to the urge to give gifts. Certainly, Christ was the Great Gift God gave to the world. During December, Dr. Lutzer will speak about four ways in which that Gift was given. And today, he will depart from the norm by explaining why Christ was the Gift of Justice.

There is no question that the moral fabric of our culture is disintegrating. Marriage is under attack as same-sex partners demand the rights that have always been accorded to heterosexuals. The gay rights agenda is changing our school curriculums and is now a major factor in our national political debate. How should believers deal with this? To find out, stay tuned.

Back in Jesus' day, religious people left an injured man by the road, lest they be contaminated. Only a Good Samaritan tended the man's wounds...this despite the fact that Samaritans were despised as second-class citizens. Sadly, discrimination and racial hatred is still with us, even among the people of God. Today: a no-nonsense challenge from the book of Micah to point us away from injustice and oppression.
