Running To Win

Dr. Erwin W. Lutzer

Just Let God Lead, Part 1 of 3 (Single Sermon)

December 2, 2013

The days ahead have no written history.  It is like blank parchment. What happens in the future is known but to God. That’s why it makes a lot of sense to allow God to order our steps in the weeks and months ahead.  Today, as uncertainty continues to mount, you’ll learn how to let God call the shots of your life.  And no one can do it better.

Your church needs you. It needs you out on life’s racetrack, running alongside the other members to get the job done together. At times of deepening crisis, our challenge is to “get involved.”  That’s what Esther did at a crucial point in the history of the Jewish people. She got involved even at great personal risk, as must we to face daunting challenges in the days ahead.

Most of our choices don’t affect world history. But sometimes God puts us in situations where they can – and do. To save her people from extinction, Esther faced possible execution to beg the king of Persia to rescind a royal edict. She did not try to “pass the buck.” She knew that, at that key moment, “the buck stopped here.”

As months go by, we are all conscious of the passing of time. We wish we had more time, but the sand keeps running through the hourglass. At crucial times, great leaders arise, often from common roots. They find themselves at the vortexes of history, and are called upon to make momentous choices. Today we learn about one such leader, a woman named Esther.

Sin is at the core of all marriage problems. In our self-focus, we often do not love our mates as we should. Many marriages begin happily but quickly descend into conflict. This is when husband and wife display the latent rebellion that characterizes every human since the first couple. Today we will learn how to apply God’s solution to man’s deepest problem and heal broken relationships.

Adam and Eve had it made in the Garden of Eden. But they tossed paradise aside, as each of us would have, when they disobeyed God. Like them, we find ways to manipulate each other to meet our own needs, not realizing that meeting our mate’s needs is the real key to marital happiness.  Feelings of rejection set in, as Adam and Eve’s story repeats again and again down through history.

Despite counseling, divorce marks the end of half of American marriages, leaving behind incalculable damage. When the family unit breaks down, culture itself breaks down. Communication breakdowns affect nearly every marriage at one time or another, and this began quite early in history – all the way back to the Garden of Eden.

The family is an endangered species. The very definition of the family is being torn apart.  Fractured, broken, stressed, and dysfunctional are words that can be used to describe this most basic unit of society. It begins when marriages fail.  Today we will take a candid look at the causes of these failures. 
November 21, 2013
Left to ourselves, we’re basically narcissistic. We would much rather meet our own needs than meet the needs of others. In matrimony, two people have to care for each other. This combats the inherent selfishness we all share. In many ways, marriage is a crucible in which character is forged and where happiness is found in pleasing your mate, not yourself.

Anyone who thinks that marriage is the magic door to happiness might want to note that half of all marriages fail today. The resulting carnage of divorce and shattered families leaves a trail of dysfunction for generations. God intended marriage to develop character, not just fulfill sensual desire. Those who opt out of their marriages miss many rewards.

When she comes down the aisle, she is the picture of perfection. He is Prince Charming in a black tuxedo. On their wedding day, few starry-eyed couples realize the searchlight that their marriage will be in revealing the character flaws they both have.  Today we will discuss in more detail that happiness is not the main purpose of marriage.
