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.

The body of Christ involves accountability to “those who have the rule over you.” This means being part of a local fellowship. In this message we’ll turn to First Corinthians chapter 12 to learn what the local church is all about, and how to find out where we fit.

In the body of Christ, everyone has a gift with which to serve others. Knowing what that gift is, and putting it to work, are keys to satisfaction and joy. As each believer does his or her part, the result is a marvelous harmony. In this message we learn to unwrap and use our spiritual gift.

In the Garden of Eden, the serpent beguiled Eve. Likewise, satanic substitutes for God often look very good. Although popular, the teachings of the occult are the doctrines of demons. As believers, it’s vital for us to understand what the Bible calls “sound doctrine.”

Our culture is into occult phenomena like never before. Whether by internet, TV, movies, or music, the occult is underscoring more and more of our culture’s values. In this message we learn what this should mean to the committed Christian.

Christians are awash in a sea of pleasures, having time for everything but God. Many waste their time in a myriad of ways, and the options only keep increasing. In this message all of us receive a challenge to get our priorities straight.

A commercial once said: “You only go around once in life. Grab all the gusto you can.” This advice, of course, is foolish. In this message, we hear a challenge to a pleasure-mad culture that’s infecting the church: a challenge to reach for the real pleasures God offers.

God designed sex for a covenant marriage relationship, not for a succession of one-night stands. In this message we confront the allure of sexual affairs, which poison our souls and undermine our ability to make commitments. How can we be free from this sin?

Extramarital sex and divorce are choices that can ruin life for all concerned. Too many people, even Christians, ignore the warnings and pay a high price in the long run. The sexual revolution has a very dark side, and we’d better count the cost.

In the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus gave some pointed teaching on morality, telling those in lust to pluck out their eyes. Jesus was showing the seriousness of sin. In this message, we investigate Matthew chapter five, and find some tough love from the Son of God.
