Running To Win

Dr. Erwin W. Lutzer

The Unchanging God, Part 4 of 4 (The Mysteries of God)

June 15, 2016

Some ask if God has relaxed His standards in the New Testament. No. The book of Hebrews says that “our God is a consuming fire.” Knowing what He’s done for us through Christ, we should expose every dark corner of our lives to the light, allowing us to serve God with cleansed hearts.

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.

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? God has not changed His mind toward sin.

There’s a difference between Old Testament regulations and New Testament commands. The New Testament fulfills the requirements of the Old, and introduces a new category of people known as the church. But through it all, God has not changed.

In the Old Testament, God seems harsh. In the New Testament, He is sometimes seen as a God of love. Many people wonder if a kinder, gentler God emerged after Jesus came. But God has actually never changed in His desire to punish sin.

Before Jesus voluntarily gave His life, He said, “It is finished.” There are no sufferings we could undertake to remove sin’s penalty. Only the perfect sacrifice of Jesus could do that. The death of Jesus gives life to all who believe.

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 made possible 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.”

“I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” These shocking words in John 14 state that, without Jesus, there is no way to have eternal life. But how does this relate to the Trinity?

The relationship between the Father and the Son is crucial for understanding Christianity. Jesus died as a sacrifice to avert the Father’s wrath against us - guilty sinners. That is an expression of love that can never be fully understood.

How do the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit relate to each other? There’s great mystery here, but the Bible gives us direction in understanding this. Let’s clarify their roles, focusing first on how Jesus, God’s Son, spoke of His Father in heaven.

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.
