Running To Win

Dr. Erwin W. Lutzer

Freedom In Prison #1 of 3

June 27, 2007
As Christians mature, they eventually realize that there is Someone carefully orchestrating the symphony of their lives. As we run life's race, we know that God is going before us to make sure the track is just the way He wants it. That is what happened for the Apostle Peter, and that is also what happens for you and me. Today we will see what happens when Peter goes to prison.

You may think no one cares how you live. But here is the reality: you are leaving a long legacy for others to follow. Long ago the Apostle Peter left a legacy so powerful that even his shadow caused the sick to be healed. Today: Erwin Lutzer talks about the effect you and I have on the lives of others, and why we must live in the power of the Holy Spirit.

The great Olympic runner Eric Liddel said, "When I run I feel His pleasure," a sentiment every believer should share. Like the Apostle Peter long ago, we who run the race of life run to feel God's pleasure, pursuing the goal of Jesus, the Author and Finisher of our faith. Peter's final days of ministry were run at full speed in the power of the Holy Spirit. To learn more, stay with us.

Those who say, "I cannot change" need to look at Peter, a man Jesus changed from timid fisherman to bold proclaimer. His transformation was so complete that even his mere presence caused the sick to be healed. For all who feel their lives are at a dead end, Peter stands as evidence that Jesus Christ can make them new: from the inside out.

When a runner seems to have superhuman strength and endurance, onlookers may wonder, "Is he taking any prohibited drugs?" But those who saw the Apostle Peter run his race of life saw a man totally renovated...changed from the inside out, without steroids. Peter the fisherman was now a bold preacher. The difference: the Holy Spirit. That same difference can remake you.

Weary runners sometimes get a second wind, a source of fresh power as they face another lap on that cinder track. For believers in the race of life, that second wind is the power of the Holy Spirit, who bears witness to Christ. The Apostle Peter felt that spiritual wind rush through his life, remaking him from the inside out. And no one close to him could miss the change.

The change in Peter from fisherman to fearless preacher is a testimony to the power of the Holy Spirit to remake a man. In the Spirit's power, we can run life's race to please Jesus, Who is the Author and Finisher of our faith. We can run that race like Peter did, sure of our eternal destiny, and endued with power from on high to do the Master's will.

When Peter denied Christ, he was not likewise denied by Jesus. Rather, he was gently asked, "Do you love Me?" Believers in life's race know that, if they fall, Christ will pick them up, for He is in the business of restoring the fallen and setting them back on their feet. Do you feel you have wandered too far to ever come home again? Peter did, and maybe you do too.

Sometimes we fail so deeply that our races of life seem to come to a complete halt. Drowning in shame, we just want to quit. As other runners pass us by, all we can see is a black hole of regret. This is where Jesus found Peter after Peter's vehement denial of even knowing Jesus. In His grace, the Master reached out to restore His servant. And He can reach out to you.

If you lose a crucial race, you might be tempted to quit. But a good coach will help you pick up the pieces and run again. Believers in life's race run toward a goal: Jesus, the Author and Finisher of our faith. Like all of us, Peter faltered in his race. He faltered to the point of amassing a load of guilt too deep for words. Today: how Christ restored a man consumed with regret.
June 14, 2007
The world is no friend to the Christian who wants to live a clean life. No matter what we do, some dirt clings to our feet. Believers in the race of life share a daily need to be cleansed by Christ, Who desires fellowship with us...fellowship that is broken when we sin. Jesus modeled His teaching by taking a basin and a towel to wash His disciples' feet.
