Running To Win

Dr. Erwin W. Lutzer

The Discipline Of Generosity Part 2

April 27, 2023

Money always tests God’s people. The love of money can turn our hearts away from God. In this message, we notice three changes which must take place to be free of the love of money: a change of heart, of ownership, and of perspective. Change only happens when we give our selfishness away.

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.

A Christian’s values are made evident through their giving. The love of money affects both the rich and the poor. In this message from 1 Timothy 6, we stress three dangerous results to our hearts from the love of money. Whether we have little or much, we must be good stewards of all that God’s given us.

Does meditation suggest an Eastern mystic in a lotus position? Biblically, meditation on the Word of God grants us inner resources to face whatever comes our way. In this message, we ponder three ways to meditate: analyze, memorize, and personalize. As we meditate on God’s Word, we are transformed.

The world may be filled with chaos and difficulty, but a heart stayed on God’s Word can overcome. Joshua meditated on the Law as he prepared to lead the nation of Israel into Canaan. In this message, we see how meditation on God’s law prepared His people for battle. Can we have true inner peace today?

Some believe the purpose of life is to work, earn money, and retire. Why is it that God is oftentimes not the center of our lives? In this message, we meet the Samaritan woman who was forever changed as she learned the true meaning of worship. There is no other purpose to life.

We often fail to worship God because we aren’t intentional. We must be disciplined and deliberate in our worship. In this message from John 4, we discover three characteristics of genuine worship through Jesus’ conversation with the Samaritan woman. True worship is a matter of the heart.

At the Last Supper, Jesus served the bread and cup as pictures of His coming sacrifice. Throughout church history, this ordinance has taken many forms and spurred much debate. In this message, we look back, look forward, and even look inward through reflecting on this sacred act. Since faith in Christ alone saves, all who believe can partake.

The ordinances of the church are important marks of obedience. Christ commanded that we practice them as outward symbols of His inner work in our lives. In this message, we consider how Baptism identifies us with our Savior in His death and resurrection. What is the connection between Baptism and our repentance?

People count greatness by power, possessions, or charisma. Jesus displayed it by taking a towel and washing feet like a slave might have done in Bible times. In this message, we look at Jesus’ example of greatness through three observations on servanthood. What would happen if our church members wholly embraced service?

Many believe greatness comes by being powerful and by being served by others. But Jesus says that true greatness comes from serving others. In this message from Mark 10, Jesus responds to James’ and John’s desire to be at His right hand. Service is our lifelong calling as followers of Jesus.

To be vulnerable requires mutual trust over time. As we enter into fellowship with God, we learn to leave behind a life of darkness and move forward into the light. In this message from 1 John, we discover the power of fellowship with the Father and His Son, Jesus. How did the early church turn their world upside down?
