Jesus, the Unexpected Revolutionary, Part 3 of 3

March 28, 2012
Many people have a “live and let live” approach to life — “You do your thing, and I’ll do mine.” Jesus didn’t share this approach. He spoke the truth, regardless of the consequences. When the honor of God was at stake, He was not above tossing the moneychangers out of the temple. He lived his life with passion and focus, and as His followers, so should we.

Jesus had no fear of the authorities. Throwing money changers out of the temple proves that. And many of the things He said often angered the religious leaders in Jerusalem. In today’s message, we’ll take a vivid look at the Son of God confronting those who should have seen Him as Israel’s great hope.

Politicians do it, so do the media elite — they spin the news to their point of view, making truth a casualty. Getting to the genuine Jesus is crucial, since He is the way, the truth, and the life, and no man comes to the Father except through Him. Join us as we begin a series that looks at Jesus without the spin that distorts our understanding of the Son of God.

Once we realize how great our need is before God, we will quickly understand that we cannot somehow help ourselves get to heaven. Once our eyes are open to the truth, we will find that only God has the power to raise sinners from the dead and give them new life. In today’s message, Pastor Lutzer will dispel a final myth about God.

All of the good deeds ever done in the world cannot erase the guilt of sin that even a single member of the human race bears before a holy God. The Bible says that all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags. Only God’s righteousness opens heaven’s doors. That is why we are deceived if we believe that “God helps those who help themselves.” Today we unmask a final lie about God.

In one sense it is true that God helps those who help themselves, however, this saying does not apply to salvation. Only those who are helpless can avail themselves of a salvation only God can give. We cannot add anything to the work that has already been done to secure our eternal future.

“God helps those who help themselves…” This is a phrase a lot of people mistakenly think is in the Bible. Certainly we need to take the initiative in many areas of life. But when it comes to the vital issue of salvation, it is crucial to understand what God really says. The Gospel proclaims that we cannot help ourselves. Only Jesus can save us.

Americans value their heritage. It is a heritage that makes possible “the pursuit of happiness” — a pursuit God approves of. Sadly, many think pursuing happiness means not pursuing the will of God, that these two things are mutually exclusive. Let’s explore some questions about this common misconception.

Lasting financial gain is often short-circuited by an investor’s desires to fast profits. The same is true in life. Going for immediate pleasures can short-circuit our potential to enjoy the overwhelming pleasures of God — pleasures that can last a lifetime. In today’s message, Pastor Lutzer will give us some good reasons why we should think long-term.
March 16, 2012
Somehow a lot of believers have the impression that pleasure and God’s will are mutually incompatible. The good news is that God wants you to experience pleasure. The bad news is that a lot of us do not know what real pleasures are. Those who think that sinking in sin will open pleasure’s doors have no clue what satisfaction is. God wants to give true satisfaction to His children.

We have all seen those cartoons where the devil whispers into one ear, and an angel whispers into the other. The implication is that choosing sin means happiness, and saying “no” means a humdrum existence. The devil whispers the lie that when we follow the Lord, we kiss all our fun goodbye. Today we will combat another lie about God that you might already believe.
