Running To Win

Dr. Erwin W. Lutzer

The Gift of Security, Part 3 of 3 (When the Spirit Has His Way)

August 15, 2013

Believers in Christ are sealed by the Holy Spirit, and that seal is a down-payment on the eternal life yet to come. As God’s property, we’re on the road toward a future kingdom, and the Holy Spirit makes this real to all who are born again.  But don’t assume that you have the seal of the Spirit. Make sure that you do. Today’s message tells you how you can be sure.

As believers in Christ, we know we’re in God’s hands and that we’ll make it to the very end. God has sealed us with the Holy Spirit, and He’s the only one who can break that seal. So though life may be hard, there are no permanent tragedies. We belong to the Almighty, and we belong to Him forever.

When you get a letter in the mail, you’re always troubled when the envelope is not sealed. Sealed envelopes give us a certainty that whatever’s inside is genuine, and permanent. So what does it mean to be sealed by the Holy Spirit?

Moral purity is not easy, especially since our tendency (and our culture) tells us to gratify our desires. People will defend poor moral choices with a thousand excuses. But believers in Christ have the Holy Spirit, and if we follow His leading, He’ll convict us when our thoughts turn where they shouldn’t.

God sees every motivation and watches every act. This should help us keep intimacy where God intended it, and flee from any situation that might tempt us to defile our bodies. Our bodies, after all, are the temples of God’s Holy Spirit.

Paul told the Corinthians, in no uncertain terms: you’re not free to live however you want. Your body is for the Lord, not for immorality. In today’s message, Pastor Lutzer expounds on Paul’s words.

As our culture becomes more saturated with “guiltless” immorality, it becomes harder to live a pure life. The Apostle Paul faced similar circumstances with the Corinthians who justified their ways, much as today’s society does. Let’s look at how Paul handled it.

Jesus said that the Holy Spirit would convict the world of sin, righteousness, and judgment. In today’s message, we’ll take a closer look at just how the Spirit actually does this. 
August 6, 2013
The Holy Spirit has come to convict the world of sin, righteousness and judgment. When God uses this conviction to save someone, it’s a huge work. God spiritually regenerates a person, and that is a miracle only He can perform.
August 5, 2013
When we don’t acknowledge God; when we don’t worship God; when we don’t love the Lord with all of our hearts, minds and souls, we are living in sin. And the Holy Spirit has come to convict us of this sin, and of the danger facing us if we continue down that path.
August 2, 2013
The coming of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost was a revolutionary moment.  The newborn church was now alive and well, and those in Jerusalem couldn’t help but notice the profound love these disciples shared. This new community was quickly making a mark on its culture, drawing many, and repelling others.
