Running To Win

Dr. Erwin W. Lutzer

The Final Battle #1 of 3

July 31, 2008
One day the race of life will end: no more trials, and no more opportunities to serve the Lord on this earth. One day the last lap will be run and the goal line will be crossed. The Bible gives us some signs that point to the time when that last lap might start, and why we must be faithful to the end.

We may never know in this life why we we are faced with a difficult test of character. But someday, it will all be clear. When God evaluates the way we ran the race of life, He will note every time we obeyed Him, no matter what. He will reward us for following Him in faith, even when all the evidence said, "Go your own way."

When the hi-tech bubble burst, lots of people lost lots of money in the stock market. Then there is Job of old. Job lost more than his money. He lost everything he owned. He lost his ten children. He lost his health. Still, he honored God. Would you? Would I?

Why do bad things happen to good people? What is the point of being righteous if the righteous have to suffer? It seems that we who run life's race can sometimes only limp, kept on the sidelines by difficulties of all kinds. Today: we will see that God has a purpose in every trial His children experience.

Jesus Christ did not die accidentally. Every detail of His sacrifice was predetermined before time began. God was not caught off guard. God was in control. And we who believe in Christ look to His cross with deep humility and say with Thomas, "My Lord, and My God."

There are no words to adequately portray what happened on a pivotal Friday in Jerusalem some 2,000 years ago. An innocent man was led to His death for crimes He did not commit. But behind the drama was the real scriptwriter: God was about to ensure the salvation of all who would believe in His Son. And the cross was the only way to do this.

Every visible indication pointed to Jesus dying a loser, jeered at, beaten, and made to hang on a shameful cross. But God's purposes cannot be thwarted. All of Satan's forces could not prevent the redemption Christ was achieving for all who would believe. And Satan saw on that cross the certainty of his own appointment with a lake of eternal fire.

The Bible tells believers that life is a race to be run, but it is no tiptoe through the tulips. Temptations lie everywhere. The enemy of our souls is God's mortal enemy as well. Although his doom is inevitable, Satan has an evolving strategy to frustrate God's purposes. To get a big picture view of the battle for your soul, stay with us.
July 22, 2008
Sometimes we pause in the race of life to ask tough questions like, "Why does God let Satan cause so much destruction?" The Bible gives us insight in answering those tough questions. Today: a look at the problem of evil as Satan tries to prevent Christ from reaching adulthood, thus preventing our redemption.

While we never take our theology from Hollywood, all of us know that there is a great struggle going on between good and evil. We see it in nations, and we see it within our own hearts. Will this battle ever end?
July 18, 2008
God could have left mankind in the misery of rebellion, but chose to extend His grace by giving fallen man a Savior. Like a life-preserver to a drowning swimmer, there is a way of salvation from the rightful penalty of our sins. As we explore the big picture of God's purposes, we come today to God's answer for man's dilemma.
