Running To Win

Dr. Erwin W. Lutzer

The Gift Of Conviction, Part 1 of 2 (When The Spirit Has His Way)

October 9, 2019

As we present the gospel, the Holy Spirit frequently works in the hearts of those who don’t yet believe. He convicts them of their need for God and their need for the forgiveness that Jesus provides. Do you know about this ministry of the Holy Spirit?

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.

If you’re a believer, the Holy Spirit lives in you. There’s an immediate bond between you and other believers in Christ—even when you meet someone you don’t know, and even in a foreign country with a language barrier. That sense of community is evidence that the Holy Spirit is real.

The baptism of the Holy Spirit places all who believe in Jesus into a new community. We join a new family of fellowship with those who are also indwelt with the Holy Spirit—evidence of our new birth in Christ. But some think the baptism of the Spirit is a special anointing which is marked by speaking in tongues. Let’s sort out the issue with Scripture.

On a great Jewish feast day, Jesus told a crowd that all who believe in him would receive rivers of living water. This was a reference to the Holy Spirit, who would empower and comfort the disciples after He ascended to heaven. But that promise can include you and me today.

There’s more than one kind of thirst. Water takes care of physical thirst. But when we feel a thirst in our hearts, there’s only one place to find that kind of water. Let’s look at a dramatic setting, where Jesus proclaimed Himself as the source of living water.

When the disciples of Jesus heard He was about to be taken from them, they felt a deep sense of abandonment. How gracious Jesus was to promise them a Companion who would be even closer to them than Jesus was while on Earth. Moreover, their Companion is also our Companion.

Jesus promised His disciples a companion who would be with them after He was gone. That companion is the Holy Spirit, and He’s still doing for today’s believers what He did for the original twelve so long ago. If you feel lonely, listen to this encouraging word.

We learn about the Holy Spirit by seeing His work in terms of word-pictures: oil, water, and wind. Each picture increases our understanding, and in this message we’ll learn about another word-picture that speaks of the power and purity of the Spirit.

The work of the Holy Spirit has been a source of controversy in the church for a long time. What does He do? What is His ministry? In this message, we begin a life-changing series that tells what happens “When the Spirit Has His Way.” And wonderful things do happen when the Blessed Spirit of God has His way.

A person of integrity runs life’s race without lying, and without ever stretching the truth. If you find a person like this, you’ve found a rare jewel. Character is vital, and in this message we hear more about the characteristics of a man or woman of integrity.
September 26, 2019
It’s in great demand, but in short supply. It’s easy to spot, but hard to find. That rare “something” is integrity. People of integrity are honest and forthright, and they have the reputations to prove it. Would you like to improve your integrity score in the race of life?
