Running To Win

Dr. Erwin W. Lutzer

The Justice Of God, Part 1 of 2 (The Mysteries Of God)

June 17, 2019

Medieval art portrays the afterlife with saints in glory above and sinners in torment below. Hell is portrayed as a place of fire, which the lost will inhabit for eternity. In our “enlightened” age, however, hell is no longer taken seriously.

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.

Many people think God is more tolerant now than He was in the days of Old Testament Israel. Christians don’t stone people for sin like the Hebrews did. So has God changed? In this message, we learn that God has not changed His mind toward sin.

In the Old Testament, God seems harsh. In the New Testament, He is seen as a God of love. Some wonder if a kinder, gentler God emerged after Jesus came. But God has not changed in His attributes and purposes. He still judges sin and draws near to the repentant.

If you’re a dad and your son is gravely ill in the hospital, you would do anything to trade places and bear your son’s pain. The same is true for God the Father. When His Son Jesus agonized on the cross, God felt the pain His Son was enduring, knowing that Jesus was paying the price for our sin.

The death of Jesus on a Roman cross is the turning point of history. That act of obedience to the Father secured the salvation of all who believe on His Son. Jesus said, “There is no greater love than a man lay down His life for His friends.”

The relationship between the Father and the Son is crucial for understanding Christianity. Because of the Father’s love, Jesus came and died as a sacrifice to satisfy God’s justice so that guilty sinners can be forgiven. That is an expression of love that can never be fully understood.

God is incomprehensible. He is so vast that our tiny minds cannot fathom His immensity. Theologians have wrestled with the nature of God for centuries, trying to sort out how the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit relate to each other. But it’s not a problem to be solved; it’s a mystery at which we marvel.

To ask why God does what He does is to go where angels fear to tread. Paul wrote, “How unsearchable are His judgments, and His ways past finding out.” God’s purposes are unable to be thwarted. We must learn to accept His sovereignty and obey His commands.

Long before any of us were born, the life-giving God set His creation in motion. These creative actions were grounded in His eternal decisions. Theologians call these decisions “decrees,” non-negotiable orders God laid down—which govern creation, redemption, and history.

The complexity of the human body is awe-inspiring. We take for granted that we each have some 34 trillion cells, each one packed with volumes of information. As our amazing Creator, God knows us completely.

Hide-and-seek is a classic and beloved favorite among children, but this game cannot be played with God. By virtue of His perfect knowledge and His all-present nature, He knows our location and even our thoughts. He has an exhaustive knowledge of all things, both actual and potential.
