One Minute After You Die
Many people spend more time planning for a vacation than preparing for eternity. Perhaps it doesn't seem real that we will still exist—fully conscious and alive—beyond the grave. But it's true, and it calls for careful consideration. In this updated edition of One Minute After You Die, bestselling author Erwin Lutzer urges readers to study what the Bible says. Can near-death experiences teach us anything about life after death? How can we prepare for our own final moment? With 700,000 copies in print, this bestselling work makes an encouraging gift for believers and a tasteful word of caution for the undecided.

Love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control—these are the fruit of the Spirit. They stand in stark contrast with the behavior of those who do not know God. Let’s examine the contrast between the works of the flesh and the fruit of the Spirit.

Speaking in tongues was prevalent at the Church’s birth. Its modern resurgence causes some to wonder if what we see now is the same thing that happened long ago. Let’s take a careful look into the Bible for clarity on tongues—what they are, and what they’re not.

The Holy Spirit bestows gifts of service on God’s people. Some teach, some proclaim from the pulpit. Others serve in quiet ways that few will notice. But every Christian has a gift. How can we discover our gifts? And how can we put them to use for God’s glory?

Becoming Christ-like involves growing in sensitivity to the Holy Spirit, who wants to create in us the character of Jesus. Sins that seemed so small suddenly seem big, and our desire to please God means saying no to many things that didn’t bother us before.

Have you ever felt wounded when someone said an unkind word to you? Did you know that God is also wounded when you sin? The Bible calls this “grieving the Holy Spirit.” As we mature in the faith, we become ever more sensitive to the Spirit’s presence, and our behavior begins to change.

Believers in Christ are sealed by the Holy Spirit, and that seal is a down payment on the gift of 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.

Seals are used for more than envelopes. Major documents are sealed to ensure authenticity. Seals speak of certainty that what’s inside is genuine and permanent. We were sealed by the Holy Spirit, but what does that mean for every believer?

God sees every motivation and watches every act. We should keep intimacy where God intended it and fleeing any temptation for us to defile our bodies, which are a temple of the Holy Spirit. This comes straight from Paul’s writings to the church at Corinth.

Ancient Corinth was a lot like today’s America: saturated with sex. In the book of 1 Corinthians, we find teaching on moral purity. It was a rude awakening to new converts used to moral debauchery. But the Holy Spirit draws the people of God away from sin and toward living a pure life.

The Holy Spirit brings joy and comfort into the lives of believers. But He also works in the lives of those who do not believe. Jesus said that the Spirit would convict the world of sin, righteousness, and judgment. Let’s take a closer look at the Spirit’s work of communicating about judgment.
