Running To Win

Suffering for Christ, Part 3 of 4 (The Legacy of a Converted Man)

April 7, 2016

Paul wrote to Philippian believers, while he was in Roman chains. His counsel is blunt: it is given to us to believe in Jesus and also to suffer for His sake. Many Christians like the abundant life, but cringe when suffering comes. Yet this is our calling as believers.

Christians, Politics, And The Cross
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.

It’s no picnic to be a follower of Christ. The more you are faithful to Him, the more the world will hate you, and the more the devil will try to stop you. The Apostle Paul had to defend himself against wolves in sheep’s clothing. There were and are false prophets in the church.

Like salmon swimming upstream, living the Christian life goes against the flow of culture. You can’t help but encounter enemies. Suffering for Christ is not a popular topic, but it is a part of what believers face around the world. Paul faced suffering head on.

Salvation is not something you choose to buy on a grocer’s shelf. You don’t compare the pros and cons of trusting Christ. Far from it. Every time someone is transferred from the kingdom of darkness to the kingdom of light, it’s because God initiated a divine transformation.

When Jesus appeared to a man on the Damascus road, the fear in that man’s heart convinced him this was no ordinary encounter. Indeed, Saul was “Confronted by Christ.” Saul would never be the same again.

You’d never find a more unlikely convert to the Christian faith. Saul was intent on capturing and killing as many believers as possible. That all changed one day when Saul the Pharisee found himself blinded by the light.

In Israel, you can stand on the very mount from which Jesus Christ ascended to His Father in heaven. Prophecies foretell his return to that very Mount of Olives to set up His kingdom on Earth.  But is He ruling in heaven right now?

For 40 days the resurrected Jesus walked the roads of Israel. But then the time came for a journey to heaven. But what is He doing now? Jesus is still advocating for His people.

The sight on the Mount of Olives was unforgettable. Jesus rose into the sky! His ascension marked the beginning of a new ministry, for He is interceding for His people at the Father’s right hand.

It’s all too easy to get lost in the internet’s infinite links and forget that our kids are growing up in a culture that wants to corrupt their souls and create addicts to immorality. Here is a final challenge to parents to get involved in the lives of their kids and reclaim their family. 
March 25, 2016
The family is on life support these days. It’s up to Christians to be an example of the value and power of a godly family. Keeping our kids from moral harm is high on the agenda, and here are some instructions for parents.
