Running To Win

Dr. Erwin W. Lutzer

The Gift of the Church, Part 3 of 3 (The Inheritance of the Redeemed)

August 3, 2017

The local church is key for any believer. Attempting to live the Christian life alone means depriving yourself of the help and admonition each of us needs every day. Loyalty to the church pays rich dividends, and God wants us to invest our time and treasure there.

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.
