Running To Win

The New Testament: Part 1, Part 1 of 3 (The Drama of Redemption)

February 12, 2016

In the drama of redemption, the Old Testament is a grand prologue. In the New Testament, the great transaction takes place. Jesus gives His life not far from where Abraham almost offered his son Isaac. No playwright could dream of a story so bold!

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.

Redemption did not begin when Jesus appeared on earth. In the mind of God, it began before the foundations of the world were laid. Genesis 3:15 depicts a promised Redeemer who would one day crush Satan’s head.

The Apostle Paul did some terrible things before his Damascus Road experience with Jesus. In writing to his son in the faith Timothy, Paul recounts his bad decisions, and then Paul tells of the boundless grace of God.

Paul, formerly known as Saul, had persecuted the new church with zeal, watching with glee as Stephen was stoned. Then his conversion on the Damascus Road changed everything. How did he later comprehend his violent actions?

Bad decisions have bad consequences, often affecting the lives of those close to us. How do we unravel the messes we make when we do not follow God’s guidance? How do we handle the problems we initiated before we came to Christ?
