Running To Win

Dr. Erwin W. Lutzer

Deceived And Loving It, Part 1 of 2 (Why Good People Do Bad Things)

November 21, 2018

We’re far from being the inherently good people our culture says we are. In fact, apart from certain restraints, we’re capable of unspeakable evil. In this message we take another step in our journey of self-discovery, a journey in which we’re finding out why we do what we do.

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.

All of us are prodigal sons, and our Father rejoices when we come back to Him. But some of us are like the elder brother who cried “unfair” when his sinning brother sought forgiveness. In this message we’ll explore what Jesus thinks about the lost people in your life.

When Jesus comes to town, revival often follows. People are convicted of sin, restitution is made, and spiritual life flows where it never had before. Has Jesus come to your town? If not, would you like Him to?

Believers arrive at life’s goal line by faithfully following Christ, who gave His life for others. Taking His gospel to needy people is our primary reason for running the race every day. Are you making an impact in your area of influence?

If you think trusting Christ means all your pathways will be strewn with roses, think again. Many of Christ’s pathways were pathways of suffering. If we’re serious about following Him, eventually we’ll leave the oasis and head into the wilderness.

Believers follow Jesus at His command. His road was never easy, and if we walk in His steps, some of those steps will be tough ones. In this message we’ll find out what it means to follow Christ into the desert.

The Apostle Peter says, “Christ suffered for us, leaving us an example that we should follow in His steps.” Following in those steps requires us to make fundamental changes in our priorities. Are we willing to reexamine our priorities in light of Jesus?

What if a believer really did what Jesus would do? That’s what Charles Sheldon asked when writing the classic novel “In His Steps.” The answers then were radical, but what about today? What would Jesus do? In this message we revisit that provocative question.
