Running To Win

Dr. Erwin W. Lutzer

Come and See His Agony #3 of 3

February 24, 2010
Self-determination is thought of as a great American distinctive. We're free to pursue our dreams, wherever they may lead. But believers' dreams must pass through God's hands. Jesus faced untold agony in a place called Gethsemane. Knowing what awaited Him, and praying until blood drops hit the ground, He finally said to His Father, "Not my will, but Thine be done."

When You’ve Been Wronged
Conflict in relationships is inevitable, but healing and reconciliation often is not. Time and again we've tried every option and failed, and all we are left with is a load of guilt and pain. Pastor Erwin Lutzer shows how the blessing the Lord gives to those who suffer unjustly is worth the pain involved. He also illustrates the need to leave our broken relationships in the hands of God and move forward in our lives toward freedom.

It is still a peaceful setting, as pilgrims meditate on the great transaction that took place in this ancient garden. Gethsemane lies on the Mount of Olives facing the Old City of Jerusalem. Here, Jesus spent a night in agonized prayer before being nailed to a cross outside the city wall. His task was to drink the cup of suffering for you and for me. What does this mean?

For some reason, many Christians believe their walk of faith should take them toward happiness, fulfillment, and prosperity. But the real legacy we inherit from our Master includes suffering. To walk where Jesus walked means walking with Him in Gethsemane. Here a decision was reached that made salvation possible for billions of believers yet to be born.

Every day a thousand voices call out, saying "listen to me." TV, radio, internet media: they all want our ear. But only one voice is really important. When Jesus was gloriously transfigured on the mountaintop, God spoke from within a cloud, saying "This is my beloved Son...listen to Him." Today you will hear the reason why you and I must do that.

Small group meetings are very meaningful. But a long time ago there was one small group meeting that has no equal. Atop a high mountain, a glorified Jesus appeared along with Moses and Elijah in the presence of Peter, James and John. Now that's a memorable meeting. In this message we will discuss the significance of those who gathered on that momentous day.

It was on a high place, perhaps Israel's Mount Tabor. Jesus gave three disciples a blinding vision of the future. Here, Moses and Elijah appeared with Christ, symbolizing Jesus as the fulfillment of both the law and the prophets. God's voice thundered from a cloud, and the experience was so powerful that, years later, Peter wrote of it as being "on the Holy Mountain."

Some believers feel they have ruined their Christian lives by making agreements with Satan. Is this really possible? Can Satan bind a child of God? Can a Christian sell his or her soul to the devil? Today we will talk about the limits God has set on Satan's domain, and why the victory of Christ is complete, as we'll learn from Matthew chapter 12.

Throughout the centuries, Christians have debated the meaning of the unpardonable sin Jesus spoke of in Matthew chapter 12. Many wonder if they have ever committed this sin, a sin for which no forgiveness is possible. Today we will study the meaning of the unpardonable sin in its larger context of Jesus talking with Pharisees who wanted to destroy Him.

When you've set out to attack someone verbally, and then find yourself out-reasoned, all you may have left is pure rage. That was the case when the Pharisees accused Jesus of casting out demons using Satan's power. Jesus replied, "A house divided against itself cannot stand." That left them speechless, and plotting to destroy Him. Today we learn of the turning tide of opinions against Jesus.

In Old Testament times, people connected sickness with personal sin. We now know this connection is not always accurate. But Jesus used that common perception in healing a paralyzed man, beginning by forgiving his sins, and thus infuriating the nearby Jewish scribes. Today we will look at a great miracle, and the testimony it bears about the Son of God.
February 11, 2010
There are times when you really need friends, especially at crisis points when we're powerless to solve our own problems. Four men wanted to help a sick man get well. Their determination to get their friend to Jesus was noted by the Savior Himself, even though they broke through a man's roof to get the job done. When we can't help ourselves, God provides others who can bear our burdens.
