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.

The love of money is the root of all kinds of evil. God wants to break money’s stranglehold on our hearts, and the key is giving in secret. We must pursue right motives and methods to do just that.

God wants our giving to be a secret we keep with Him. After all, God, not the IRS, keeps the ultimate books. We must each examine our motive for giving. Do we give discretely, valuing only the watchful eyes of God?

When Jesus came to live among us, we beheld the radiance of the glory of God in human form. John 1 summarizes this wonderful truth: God came to live among us as a man.

John 1 is a breathtaking overview of how Jesus is God’s expression to mankind. As the Word of God in human flesh, Jesus shows us what God is like. The words of our Savior are the words of God Himself.
