Running To Win

Dr. Erwin W. Lutzer

The Legacy Of One Life #2 of 2

July 3, 2007
Some day there will be no more races. The winners will be rewarded, and the track left behind. But until then, we must run. Believers who run life's race know that their goal is Jesus, Who is the Author and Finisher of their faith. Peter knew this. Peter believed this, and his life's legacy still bears fruit as you and I continue in the faith he defended. Turn to Second Peter chapter 3, and stay with us.

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.

Even if you have gotten "a new lease on life," that lease will one day expire. What kind of legacy will you leave behind? Paul could say, "I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith." And before his death, the Apostle Peter stirred up his readers toward fruitful growth in the faith. Today, we assess the impact of Peter's life on those he knew, and on the generations to follow.

Whether during war or peace, Christians know that God is in charge. Nothing men can do to us bypasses His approval. Peter's race of life was interrupted by some jail time, until God's angel got him back on track. His job was not yet finished...and the executioner would have to wait. Today we learn more about God's protection of His own.

Great runners may feel invincible. While earthly victories come and go, there is a sense in which believers are invincible. Peter knew that his race of life would not end by execution in a jail cell. But when the angel opened the prison doors, the young church could not believe he was really free. Then again, would we have thought any differently? To find out, stay with us.

As Christians mature, they eventually realize that there is Someone carefully orchestrating the symphony of their lives. As we run life's race, we know that God is going before us to make sure the track is just the way He wants it. That is what happened for the Apostle Peter, and that is also what happens for you and me. Today we will see what happens when Peter goes to prison.

You may think no one cares how you live. But here is the reality: you are leaving a long legacy for others to follow. Long ago the Apostle Peter left a legacy so powerful that even his shadow caused the sick to be healed. Today: Erwin Lutzer talks about the effect you and I have on the lives of others, and why we must live in the power of the Holy Spirit.

The great Olympic runner Eric Liddel said, "When I run I feel His pleasure," a sentiment every believer should share. Like the Apostle Peter long ago, we who run the race of life run to feel God's pleasure, pursuing the goal of Jesus, the Author and Finisher of our faith. Peter's final days of ministry were run at full speed in the power of the Holy Spirit. To learn more, stay with us.

Those who say, "I cannot change" need to look at Peter, a man Jesus changed from timid fisherman to bold proclaimer. His transformation was so complete that even his mere presence caused the sick to be healed. For all who feel their lives are at a dead end, Peter stands as evidence that Jesus Christ can make them new: from the inside out.

When a runner seems to have superhuman strength and endurance, onlookers may wonder, "Is he taking any prohibited drugs?" But those who saw the Apostle Peter run his race of life saw a man totally renovated...changed from the inside out, without steroids. Peter the fisherman was now a bold preacher. The difference: the Holy Spirit. That same difference can remake you.

Weary runners sometimes get a second wind, a source of fresh power as they face another lap on that cinder track. For believers in the race of life, that second wind is the power of the Holy Spirit, who bears witness to Christ. The Apostle Peter felt that spiritual wind rush through his life, remaking him from the inside out. And no one close to him could miss the change.
June 20, 2007
The change in Peter from fisherman to fearless preacher is a testimony to the power of the Holy Spirit to remake a man. In the Spirit's power, we can run life's race to please Jesus, Who is the Author and Finisher of our faith. We can run that race like Peter did, sure of our eternal destiny, and endued with power from on high to do the Master's will.
