The Light Shines on Mars Hill #2 of 3

August 31, 2010
When we witness to people about Jesus, how do we relate to them? Paul taught us how to do it in Acts chapter 17. The Apostle quickly found out where they were coming from, and focused his message on what they already knew. His audience on Mars Hill was made up of philosophers: lovers of wisdom. He directed attention to their monument to an unknown God.

When You’ve Been Wronged
Conflict in relationships is inevitable, but healing and reconciliation often is not. Time and again we've tried every option and failed, and all we are left with is a load of guilt and pain. Pastor Erwin Lutzer shows how the blessing the Lord gives to those who suffer unjustly is worth the pain involved. He also illustrates the need to leave our broken relationships in the hands of God and move forward in our lives toward freedom.

The Hill of Ares in Athens is a mound of granite facing the famous Acropolis with its temples to pagan gods. At this hill, Paul the Apostle presented the gospel with power to a group of philosophers who enjoyed argument.   Little did they know that they were watching the beginning of a spiritual tidal wave that would engulf the known world of their time. Today: what happened at a hill also known as Mars Hill.

Acts 16:31 is a well-known verse in which Paul answers a jailer’s question: “How can I be saved?” “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and you will be saved, you and your household.” Some see in this verse a promise that all in a family will come to faith. Today, on the 4,000th consecutive broadcast of Running to Win, we’ll see what this passage actually means.

Jailers know that locks usually stay locked. But when Paul and Silas were sprung from prison, one jailer learned otherwise. The explosive power of the gospel was beginning to be felt in the world of the first century. The Holy Spirit began convicting of sin, causing a fearful jailer to ask, “What must I do to be saved?” Today, more on prison doors flinging open, and faith being birthed anew.

The Apostle Paul received a vision calling him to preach in Macedonia, and immediately he set out to obey that vision. With him were Silas and Timothy, and their first stop was at Philippi. The power of the spirit was in evidence as people readily responded to Paul’s message. Among those who believed was a merchant woman whose heart had been prepared by God.

Sometimes we think the gospel is a matter of persuading people to consider Christ. Today, we’ll find it’s much more. The Bible calls the gospel “the power of God.” That word “power” in Greek is the word that gives us “dynamite” in English.” That power began to be felt in the early church, and today we’ll begin tracing the impact the gospel made in the first century.

There’s more to life than grabbing all the gusto you can. When he obeyed God, the Apostle Paul found himself in prison. For believers on the racetrack of life, there is no guarantee of a bed of ease. A life of servanthood is what lies before us, a life like the life Jesus lived. Are you ready to embrace the Disciplines That Grow Godliness?

Being a winning athlete means getting knocked around a lot. Most sports take quite a physical toll on those who strive for victory. It’s no different in the race of life. It’s only through some hard knocks that we learn to help others face their hard knocks. Learning to endure hardness was advice Paul gave, advice you and I need to hear in this age of self-gratification.

Many American Christians want what everybody else wants, success and security. Few want to take a towel to wash someone’s feet. Being a servant goes against our grain. But, in God’s eyes, it’s the servants who win in the race of life. Everybody likes servants as long as they don’t have to be servants. Ready for a paradigm shift? Today we will explore “The Discipline of Servanthood.”

Facing a delicious turkey dinner, the last thing you’d think about is fasting. But there are times when fasting is what we must do. Sometimes we find ourselves in spiritual warfare, and only through fasting can victories be won. It was true for Jesus, and it’s certainly true for us. Today we will learn why fasting can help open the door to a deep work of God in your life.

There are times to feast, holiday times, times of celebration. But in the plan of God, there are also times to fast. Some of the tough laps in life’s race require the spiritual discipline of fasting. We see this in Jesus’ own 40-day example in the wilderness. Fasting is avoiding food altogether in order to rely on God for strength. That’s what Jesus needed. Could it be what you need as well?
