Running To Win

Dr. Erwin W. Lutzer

Christ, the Lord of Our Talents, Part 1 of 3 (The Joy of Generosity)

February 14, 2017

We’re all given gifts and abilities. It’s not how many we’ve got, but how we use them, that determines the outcome of our lives. Rather than complain about what we don’t have, let’s focus today on how to best use what we’ve been given.

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.

For centuries, sins were covered temporarily and symbolically by blood sacrifices in the temple. Through Jesus’ death and resurrection, those sins were taken away forever. Believers are acquitted from a sentence they should rightfully bear. But what a high price for that acquittal!

As a monk, Martin Luther would go to confession for hours at a time, trying to be sure his every sin would be forgiven. Confession is important, but that next sin lies in wait just around the corner. For the believer, confession takes on a much more hopeful meaning.
