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.

Jesus taught using parables, or stories. He spoke of a strong man who can’t be defeated, except by a stronger man. In Luke chapter 11, we learn that we can’t overcome evil alone, for we can only defeat Satan in the name and power of Jesus.

Few people these days take seriously the idea of evil spirits inhabiting people. But demons are very real. Jesus drove demons out of many, setting them free from destruction and bondage.

We don’t always know why, but God chooses to give some of His children more than others—more abilities, more money, and better health. When we realize that the Giver is the one who distributes the gifts, and not the receiver, we’ve come a long way in understanding how God rewards his people.

In a parable, Jesus taught His disciples how rewards are handed out in the kingdom of God. What He taught seems quite unfair. In this message we look beneath the surface of Jesus’ words for life-changing truth that upends our innate sense of fairness.

The story of the Prodigal Son is really the story of two prodigals. One left in rebellion, the other stayed in rebellion. Let’s look again into a famous parable of Jesus that shows how the Father in heaven relates to His beloved children—even when they go astray.

In Matthew 18, Jesus gave a dire warning to those who refuse to forgive other people. But what does it mean when it says God will not forgive us if we fail to forgive others? Work through this crucial teaching with us, and then be quick to forgive.

When you’re wronged, you may become resentful and bitter. That’s why Jesus spoke on the vital importance of forgiveness. In a famous parable, He outlined the key principles to guide us as we wrestle with the wrongs we’ve done, and wrongs others have done to us.

In a parable of Jesus, we learn how God the Father is eager to answer the cries of His children. He said, “Ask and it will be given to you. Seek and you will find.” In this message from Luke 11, we learn more about prayer—a subject which is a mystery to many.
