Running To Win

Dr. Erwin W. Lutzer

A Living Church, Part 2 of 2 (When God Comes To Church)

August 6, 2020

The church in Thessalonica underwent persecution, but nonetheless exhibited the joy of the Lord, despite their trials. That’s what happens when God’s presence is very real, as it is during times of revival. In this message we look at what happens to a church when God shows up.

We are living in a time when we desperately need to engage our culture with the only message that has any hope of transforming it. As Pastor Lutzer explores various approaches to the relationship between the state and the church, he reminds us that spiritual redemption, not political reformation, is at the heart of God’s agenda. Only the church, not a political party, can bear God’s message to a hurting world. Click below to receive this book for a gift of any amount or call Moody Church Media at 1.800.215.5001.

New life comes to a church when revival begins, and there's no doubt we could use a great awakening now. What are the indications that God is making His presence known in a special way? In this message we begin a series from one of Paul’s epistles that tells us what they are.

Loving God with all our hearts, and our neighbors as ourselves, fulfills the law and pleases our Creator. Obeying this commandment means obeying all ten of the commands God wrote on tablets of stone so long ago. They’re not suggestions, they’re commands. So do you love God?

Written by God on tablets of stone, the Ten Commandments defined proper behavior. Those who know and love God not only follow these ten laws, but on a higher plane, they follow an eleventh: to “Love one another, as I have loved you.” In this message we sum up our study of the Ten Commandments by learning how Jesus fulfills the Law in love.

The sin nobody sees can light fires of lasting conflict. Covetousness, longing for what others have, is a recipe for ongoing discontent. And God’s will for us is to be content. The tenth commandment makes it clear: we are not to covet.

There’s something in all of us that wants what someone else has. But no matter how many possessions we acquire, we can’t take them with us after we die. And this should change our perspective today. The sin of coveting is what God addresses in the last of the Ten Commandments.

Among seven things God hates, the writer of Proverbs lists lying twice. That’s serious for a sin we all commit. Winning in the race of life requires telling the truth. In this message we find out why lying is so prevalent, and so destructive.

Many people frequently exaggerate, brag, or slander. For some, telling a “white lie” is okay. But it’s not okay with God. If what comes out of our mouth is inconsistent with how we live, then we are liars. Lying violates the ninth commandment in the Bible, and God values integrity. Do you always tell the truth?

Theft is theft, whether large or small. It can be obvious theft, such as robbery; but it can also be hidden theft, such as tax fraud, stealing time, or even not paying back a loan. Today in our study of the eighth commandment, we consider how when we steal, we steal from God.
July 27, 2020
Stealing is on the rise as people say, “what’s yours is mine.” It’s more than burglary. People steal from their employers with hardly a second thought. We forget that stealing of any kind violates one of the Ten Commandments.
July 24, 2020
It’s dangerous to get too close to a fire. And it’s also dangerous to get close to a possible sexual sin. That’s why the seventh commandment teaches us to avoid all forms of such sin. Obedience to God’s command results in a life free of entanglements that can stop us in our tracks.
