Living With Your Passions
In a hyper-sexualized culture, sex is either reduced to pleasure-seeking or conflated with our identity. But God designed us as sexual beings for emotional and spiritual intimacy whose highest calling is to worship Him. In this revised edition, Pastor Erwin Lutzer draws on forty years of ministry experience to present a rationale for sexual purity. He gives an honest answer to the sexual pressures we face like extramarital relationships, self-gratification, same-sex attraction, and more. As desire-driven creatures, we don't have to pursue happiness at the expense of character. With our identity grounded in Christ, we can live victoriously with our passions.

What keeps a couple together 76 years, surviving war, emigration, deprivation, and material want? This message will tell the story of the parents of Dr. Erwin Lutzer, and why their marriage lasted so long.

Jesus said, “I am the Vine, you are the branches. If you abide in Me and I in you, you will bear much fruit.” Indeed we must bear fruit, or else the cross will be of no effect.  It is not what we say or who we vote for; it is what we do.

Jesus renounced His privileges and humbled Himself to the point of permitting His own death. Unless we do the same, we will never reach the lost.

While on earth, Jesus chose to contain His glory and limit His options. And that is the key to how we can bring His message to lost mankind. As we learn why the cross can do what politics cannot, today we will find out how to effectively take the cross into the world.

There is a basic problem in evangelism:  the world thinks the cross we preach about is foolish, but to us, it is the power of God. How do we bring the message of the cross to a rejecting world?

Today’s common philosophy is, “if it feels good, do it.” But believers know that the cross is a potent reminder of the price of wrong moral choices. Today Pastor Lutzer further explains why the cross is the only basis for morality.
October 28, 2014
Americans are adrift in a sea of moral relativism. We need a moral compass. The cross of Christ is that compass, and the church must live by the cross if our culture is to survive.
October 27, 2014
What happens when moral standards are set by the will of the majority? It becomes “okay” to kill a baby right before birth, but it is murder to kill one after birth. Confusion reigns and the price tag is devastating. 
October 24, 2014
A culture that rejects Christ is a culture that makes its own standard for moral choices. This moral standard influences our votes which determine our nation’s destiny. So where does true morality come from?
October 23, 2014
One day there will be no more racial or ethnic divisions. One day, redeemed humanity will glory only in the cross. Saints from every nation will exalt the Lamb of God. The good news? It is possible for the church to mirror that future reality today.
