Running To Win

Dr. Erwin W. Lutzer

The Casualty Of Mankind, Part 2 of 2 (What Is God Up To?)

December 3, 2021

Because you are created in the image of God, you need a sense of dignity, a feeling that you have value in the universe. You might have counted on others’ opinions or what you do for your worth. But without God, life is confusing and empty. Just like Eve took the bite of fruit to be “like God,” any sin or pride leads to horrific results with eternal consequences. In this message, you’ll find true worth through God’s grace that lifts the lowly.

Nobody, whether it is an angel or a human being, can ever profit from rebellion against God. Sin is always counterproductive. You might not see the negative consequences right away, but the result of this rebellion is stark: death and separation from God. Is there a solution?

When God created the universe, everything was in perfect harmony—until one angel named Lucifer made a big mistake. In pride, he tried to steal glory from God. No matter who you are, it’s futile to stand in opposition to God. Through a continued look at the five stages in Satan’s dramatic career, you’ll be ready to reject lies and draw near to God.

Everything that you have, whether it’s your physical appearance or your wealth and ability, is all derived from God’s loving, generous hand. Yet it’s so easy to forget that there’s nothing you have that you have not received. This is the root of pride. The archangel Satan was consumed with such pride as well. Why would God’s number-one angel Lucifer turn traitor, knowing he could never defeat the all-powerful Creator? We’ll begin to look at the five stages in Satan’s dramatic career that help us avoid the pitfalls of pride.

The greatest sin that you can commit is to ignore God. The heaven of the heavens cannot contain the Lord. He’s created the earth, the sun, the moon, the stars, and the galaxies. He then created us on this little speck that we call Planet Earth all within His redemption plan. But the world’s way of life is pleasure, to get all that you can out of life before you go. In this message, you’ll discover how respect for the Living God will transform your purpose in this life and the next.

The most important thing about you is what you think of God. How you explain the pain and suffering in the world is directly tied to your view of God. In fact, God already knew ahead of time that that creation would include within it the fact that young children would be abused by their parents, that there would be wars, and that there would be problems resulting from our sin. In this message, you’ll discover five attributes of God in Scripture that will enlarge your view of God and comfort your heart in the midst of the brokenness of this world.

Do you wonder why people who Believe in Jesus Christ are told to “give thanks in everything.” Some wonder, “Does this mean I’m to be thankful for calamity?” In this message, you’ll sharpen your focus on why you can, and must, be thankful. You’ll discover why and how you can rejoice no matter the circumstances.

Is it difficult to be content with what you have this Thanksgiving or any other day of the year? The Bible tells us to give thanks in everything. Does this mean you must be thankful for illness or loss? Or you must be grateful for not having a job? In this message, we learn why the Bible’s command to be thankful makes sense even when we don’t understand our circumstances.

Do you feel under pressure by all the needs and expectations upon you? You might think that your greatest need is to repair your crumbling marriage, to get out of financial ruin, or all kinds of other things that may be happening. These are legitimate needs. But your greatest need is always a fresh vision of God, a fresh vision of Jesus. In this message, discover the implications of seeing the Word become flesh. When Jesus reveals God, it puts everything else in its proper place.

“Well, you know that’s your religion, but I have my own spirituality.” This sentiment doesn’t account for the voice of God from outside yourself. In fact, your whole life is based upon the Creator’s will and purpose, and it’s prudent to investigate how God made the way back to him. The Greek word “logos” means word or expression. The Gospel of John says, “the Word became flesh.” In this message, you’ll encounter the Word of God coming in the flesh: His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ.

Is God worth ten minutes of your time in the morning – or fifteen minutes? If you ever wonder what to say when you pray, try praying scriptures back to God. Praying Scripture is transforming and can become a new habit. In this message, you’ll grow in confidently approaching the throne of God when we’re at a loss for words.
