God, Yes, But Why Jesus? Part 4

January 9, 2023

Jesus is the only way to God. If we testify to that, we will be ignored at best or hated at worst because Jesus leads to an inescapable decision. In this message, Pastor Lutzer shares two practical stories of witnessing about the only qualified Savior, Jesus. What price are we willing to pay to witness for Christ?

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.

In today’s world, “tolerance” is heard everywhere. But Christians must be ready and able to lovingly point people to Jesus—the only way to the Father. In this message from John 14, we define three characteristics of truth: universality, consistency, and objectivity. Without that truth there is no knowing, and without that life there is no living.

As we compare Buddhism, Islam, and New Age Spirituality with Jesus, what sets Him apart? Some admire Jesus but have never accepted Him.

Many are into spirituality but are often offended by absolute truth claims. While some think all religions are equal and scoff at evangelism, Jesus stands alone. In this message from John 1, Jesus has three credentials that qualify Him: His deity, His humanity, and His ability to save. God has revealed Himself in the flesh.

Believers want to know what lies ahead in the plan of God. God’s will is unfolded as a series of small events that ultimately take us where He wants us to go. In this message, our paths will be made clearer through the light from God’s Word. It’s time we let Him guide by asking, seeking, and knocking.

How do we make major life decisions? It’s crucial to allow God to order our steps in the uncertain weeks and months ahead. In this message, we build a foundation for decision-making through five presuppositions about God’s will from Scripture. We can trust Him with our future in our marital, vocational, or medical choices.

When we think we can handle the hard times, that’s precisely when we need to give everything to God. While enslaved in Egypt, the Israelites had to acknowledge their own rebellion against God. In this message, we glean key lessons for hard times. When the pressure mounts, are we ready to yield to the Lord?

When our world crashes down, we can be sure God has us there by divine appointment. The Israelites faced brutal oppression as slaves, crying out to God in desperation. In this message, we join a five-point curriculum to face hard times. God won’t waste any of our trials.

It’s easy to trust God in success but difficult to trust Him in the desert. With all of Moses’ fears and insecurities, God met him at the burning bush. In this message, we follow three lessons that prepare our hearts for God’s plan. Could a desert be exactly where God wants us to be?

Whether we’ve lost a job, a home, or any kind of hope, we know life is hard. Even Moses’s life confirmed this while he was on the run, living in a desert. In this message, we walk through three deeper lessons from the wilderness: servanthood, trust, and obedience. What do we do when life is hard and our options are few?

From before all time, God chose to create our world where the drama of good and evil, justice and injustice, would be played out. Within that context of fallen humanity, Jesus left His home to reconcile us to Himself. In this message, we marvel at God’s plan. Is there room in our lives for Jesus?
