Running To Win

Dr. Erwin W. Lutzer

The Lie That Judas Did Jesus A Favor

March 17, 2008
Live Interview
The central focus of the Christian faith is the cross. Here Jesus paid the price for sin, opening the way to eternal life. But not all have that life. In fact, many are trying to reinvent Jesus as a mere man, a teacher who meant well but ended badly. Some say He never went to the cross, but was so loved by God that He was taken directly to heaven. Today: another lie about Jesus is debunked.

In some cultures, offending a revered prophet is a sure way to lose your head. But no one complains if Jesus' name is reviled. Through lies and distortions, the Son of God is being repackaged. Whether in "The Da Vinci Code" or in the Jesus Seminar, a new Jesus is emerging...one that bears scant resemblance to the Jesus of the New Testamant. Today: Dr. Lutzer's answer begins.

If you ever wanted to know how God feels when we turn to Him in repentance, take a long look at Luke chapter 15. All of us are prodigal sons, and our Father rejoices when we come back to Him. But some of us are like the elder brother who cried "unfair" when his sinning brother sought forgiveness. Today: what Jesus thinks about the lost people in your life.

Jesus used simple parables to explain eternal truth. Though simple, these stories carry profound implications. In the gospel of Luke, He spoke of seeking a lost coin and compared it to seeking a lost soul, teaching us the value of every person we meet. Today: why seeking the lost was His great mission, and why it should be our great mission as well.

Many runners seek fame, fortune, or the glory of Olympic gold. Christians running life's race have a different motive. Believers run to please Jesus, the "Author and Finisher" of their faith. They want to advance His kingdom, and bring people to know Him personally. So, what is involved in seeking the lost?

The race of life often takes Christians into the heart of town. And as believers follow Christ there, amazing things can happen. When Jesus comes to town, revival often follows. People are convicted of sin, restitution is made, and spiritual life flows where it never had before. Has Jesus come to your town?

As a believer, you run life's race on a track made just for you. Your road is not always easy, but it's end is sure. We get to the goal by faithfully following Christ, whose life was lived to minister to people. And taking His gospel to those needy people is our primary reason for running the race.

Many of the major figures in the Scriptures spent a lot of time in the desert. Here, God could get their full attention. The Apostle Paul and even Christ Himself found strength and direction in a place we would call inhospitable. We are finding that the desert is really not an option...all of us need to get used to sand.

If you think that trusting Christ guarantees that all of your pathways will be strewn with roses, you might want to think again. Many of Christ's paths were paths of suffering. If we are serious about following Him, sooner or later we will find ourselves leaving the oasis and heading into the wilderness...and God does this for a reason.

Not all of life's roads take us through pleasant places. Sometimes the way leads into the desert, and there we must go. Believers follow Jesus, at His command. His road was never easy, and if we walk in His steps, some of those steps will be tough ones. Today, what it means to follow Christ into a place not found in travel brochures.
March 4, 2008
Down through the centuries, faithful followers of Christ have sought to live as He would have them live...asking "What would Jesus do?" The Apostle Peter says, "Christ suffered for us, leaving us an example that we should follow in His steps." Following in those steps requires us to make fundamental changes in our priorities. If you are willing, stay with us.
