Running To Win 15 Minute Version

Dr. Erwin W. Lutzer

You've Been Chosen Forever Part 1

January 19, 2017

As believers mature in the faith, they come to realize that salvation is not so much a result of our seeking God as it is the result of God choosing us first. If God had not done this, none of us would ever have chosen Him.

One Minute After You Die
Many people spend more time planning for a vacation than preparing for eternity. Perhaps it doesn't seem real that we will still exist—fully conscious and alive—beyond the grave. 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? With 700,000 copies in print, this bestselling work makes an encouraging gift for believers and a tasteful word of caution for the undecided.

God works in the lives of His people to bring about good even when what’s happening is bad. Through the eye of faith, we who know Him can be sure that a better day is coming, and we can live triumphantly no matter what comes our way.

“All things work together for good to them who love God…” does this include tragedy and disasters? Here are some ways God uses life’s rough spots to fashion in us the character He desires to see.

Only a Christian can be certain that all of life is heading toward a future glory. That’s why believers know that all things, even the bad things, work together for good for those who love God.

Christians get socked by life’s reversals like anyone else. But there’s a crucial difference. Believers know they have a permanent home where no foreclosure is possible… and where all suffering will end. But we never groan alone during trials.
January 13, 2017
As believers, we long to be free of the limitations and pains of this body. Suffering is a lot easier to bear when we have hope for a future day when all suffering will cease. That’s the hope Paul speaks of in the marvelous eighth chapter of Romans.

It’s tough to be optimistic when slogging through hard times. Some try to grin and bear it; others crack under the pressure. But Christians can have a different perspective: awaiting a future glory that makes our present suffering infinitesimal in comparison.

“The Spirit bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God, and if children, then… joint heirs with Christ.” Romans 8 gives believers the riches of heaven despite being unworthy sinners. God invites us into the throne room to partake of His bounty.

Think life’s tough for you? Just wait. Think you’ve always gotten the short end of life’s stick? Just wait. As a member of the body of Christ, your inheritance is earning interest right now in the bank of heaven. One day: you’ll make a withdrawal.
January 9, 2017
From Romans 8 we learn that the Holy Spirit bestows Christians with the desire for intimacy with God. In fact, even the desire to call Him “daddy.” Can you call God “Papa”?
January 6, 2017
An heir—that’s exactly what you are as a child of God. You’re an heir to a fortune, and didn’t know it. In Romans, we read: “we are children of God, and if children, then heirs, joint heirs with Christ.”
