Running To Win

Dr. Erwin W. Lutzer

Someone Better Than Angels #3 of 3

June 13, 2008
When an angel appeared in Bible times, people would fall on their faces. But the angel was often quick to say "Do not worship me." We should do as the angels do, and worship the one they worship. Today, why Jesus is far superior to even the highest angel, and why He alone is the way to God.

We are living in a time when we desperately need to engage our culture with the only message that has any hope of transforming it. As Pastor Lutzer explores various approaches to the relationship between the state and the church, he reminds us that spiritual redemption, not political reformation, is at the heart of God’s agenda. Only the church, not a political party, can bear God’s message to a hurting world. Click below to receive this book for a gift of any amount or call Moody Church Media at 1.800.215.5001.

Lots of people believe in angels. They think angels are heavenly friends sent to work out our earthly problems. Not so fast. The reality is that angels exist to do the will of God, and to exalt God's Son, as should we. The book of Hebrews tells us that Jesus Christ is far above the angels, and above all creation. To find out more about just how exalted Jesus is, stay with us.

There is a New Testament book that takes us directly into heaven's throne room. Here we find what it means to "draw near to God." That book is the book of Hebrews, and today we begin a series that highlights many of the teachings of this vital epistle, teachings that will help us better run life's race, and better serve the King of Kings.

To win a major race, runners lose extra weight. They cast off everything that might slow them down on their way to victory. Believers are commanded to love God supremely, and cast off every weight and sin that besets them. Then, they can run life's race at top speed, knowing that the goal line will bring them face to face with the God they love.

First place...the thought of winning a race drives athletes to excel...to give their all to cross the goal line first. Believers are to give God first place in their lives, running life's race for no other reason than to express their love for Him. In fact, we are commanded to love God supremely: everything else is to take second place.

At the racetrack, a runner is driven by the thought of victory. The race is worth all the effort when the prize awaits at the end. Believers are to run life's race for Christ, who taught us to love God with all our being as the first and greatest commandment. Now that is a tall order, one we will explore today on our broadcast.

When a man or woman is converted to Christ, many deep-seated desires change. We become givers rather than takers...and God's desire is that we see our money as a trust to manage, not a possession to squander. Running life's race successfully has a financial component that we will summarize on today's broadcast.

Money: You cannot live without it, and sometimes you cannot live with it. Believers in the race of life need to come to grips with money, and that means discerning God's intentions for our pocketbooks. Many of us grip those pocketbooks until our knuckles turn white. But God wants us to discover the joy of generosity, and that is our focus on today’s broadcast.

"The love of money is the root of all evil." Christians running the race of life frequently get tripped up by matters of money. And those issues revolve around ownership. Whose money is it really? Is it mine to do with as I please, or am I just taking care of it for someone else? Christ had much to say about money: words we will hear shortly.

Not all of us can win the hundred-meter dash. But all of us can run to the best of our ability. That is all a coach can expect. For every track star in the Olympics, there are ten thousand runners who will never make the team. But that is no reason to give up. Many believers with few talents approach life with a clenched fist rather than an open hand. Today we will see why God prefers the latter.

Remember high school gym class? Perhaps you never did well in those track events, but the coach kept urging you to do your best. Although we are not equal in abilities, we are equal in our obligation to use our abilities for God wisely. In Bible times, a talent was a large sum of money. Today it signifies an ability. Either way, the parable of the talents shows us how to manage what we have got.
