The Icon of Tolerance Part 2

September 3, 2013

These days, some say God is okay…maybe. But Jesus? No, He’s definitely off-limits for public events even in a “tolerant” society. The one who said He was the truth is still dividing humanity.

But it's true, and it calls for careful consideration. In this updated edition of One Minute After You Die, bestselling author Erwin Lutzer urges readers to study what the Bible says. Can near-death experiences teach us anything about life after death? How can we prepare for our own final moment?

In today’s society, tolerance takes even the most absurd contradictory ideas and makes them look as if they are special, unique, and rich. But if you say you have found truth, suddenly there is intolerance.

There’s no magic to living the Christian life. Walking in the Spirit is a daily commitment to obey the Lord and say no to the flesh. The Apostle Paul talks about this in terms of sowing and reaping. The appetite we feed will be the appetite that’s dominant in our lives. Let’s take a final look at the work and ministry of the Holy Spirit in the life of the believer.

It’s easy to display the Spirit’s fruit when all’s right with the world. It’s much tougher when life takes a hard turn. Often the most radiant believers are the ones who suffer the most. The Holy Spirit shines through the lives of many whose road has been hard. In today’s message, Pastor Lutzer takes another look at the work and ministry of the Holy Spirit in the life of the believer.

Christians have an inner conflict. They are fighting against the desires of the flesh that are against the desires of the Holy Spirit. So as we learn to walk in the Spirit, following the prompts given to us by God, we’ll not give in to the desires of the flesh.

When a Christian is walking in the Spirit, their everyday life is marked by visible evidence of the presence of God: love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. These are the fruits of the Spirit and they’re in stark contrast to the behavior of many who don’t know God. In today’s message, we’ll see the difference between the works of the flesh and the works of the Spirit.

There are all kinds of people in the body of Christ with all kinds of strengths and all kinds of weaknesses—and all kinds of needs to be met. That’s why the Holy Spirit bestows spiritual gifts on those who believe: to help each other. The gifts are as diverse as those who receive them. And, each one is critical if the body is to function as God intends.

Some believers are reluctant to focus on the Holy Spirit because they think it means having to speak in tongues. This gift of the Spirit was prevalent at the birth of the church, and today its resurgence causes some to wonder if what we see now is the same thing that happened long ago. In today’s message, Pastor Lutzer takes a careful look into the Bible for clarity on what tongues are and what they’re not.
August 23, 2013
Every believer has a gift they can use to serve the body of Christ. Some teach, some exhort, some serve, some manage. Our gifts may vary, but the Holy Spirit bestows at least one gift on each of God’s people. In today’s message, Pastor Lutzer will help us discern what our gift is.
August 22, 2013
Every Christian is indwelt with the Holy Spirit. Every believer is part of the Body of Christ: the Church. We’re created to function within the Body, and God, through His Holy Spirit, has given all of us gifts in order to do so.
August 21, 2013
When the Spirit has His way in a Christian’s life, their consciences become more tuned in to right and wrong. The process of becoming Christ-like involves a growing sensitivity to the Holy Spirit who wants to create in us the character of Jesus, so that sins that seemed insignificant suddenly seem big, and our desire to please God means more to us that pleasing ourselves.
