Running To Win

Dr. Erwin W. Lutzer

The Worst Decision Ever Made #2 of 4

November 8, 2010
Being deceived: believing what isn’t true, or, believing in what agrees with your desires, despite the facts. The first woman was deceived by the devil, and the first man followed suit. We humans have listened to the voice of the great liar from the very beginning. The results? Catastrophic. Today: more on the long-term consequences of believing a lie.

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.

Hindsight is 20-20. Anyone can see the results of a choice after it’s made. It’s tougher to predict the future. What do you do when you’ve made a bad call, and have to live with it? The Bible has many examples of this, and today we begin a series on Making the Best of a Bad Decision. We will learn that there is hope, even if we have really messed things up.

Most people enjoy the internet, especially those who filter out immoral websites. But a danger lies behind that screen. It’s all too easy to get lost in the web’s infinite links, and forget that our kids are growing up in a culture that wants to eat them for lunch. Today, a final challenge: a challenge to parents to get involved in the lives of those precious children, and thereby reclaim the family.

As individuals, we can’t change the whole world. But we can change ourselves, and our kids, and thereby make a difference. The family is on life support these days, and it’s up to us as Christians to show by example the value and power of a godly family. Keeping our kids from moral harm is high on the agenda, and today we’ll hear some more commandments for parents designed to help us.

There is a costly war in Afghanistan. But there is a bigger war going on in our culture, with many more casualties. There are forces active today that want to destroy your kids and redefine marriage. A rising tide of media filth, immorality and political correctness threatens the foundations of our society. Today: get set for some alarming news.

Like water to a thirsty man, the grace of God can flow like a river to heal families torn by strife and bitterness. If your family is in trouble, it’s not too late to cleanse the wounds, and let healing begin. Even in messy situations, God can work mighty miracles of reconciliation. Today we see how God blessed King David, an ineffective father like many of us.

Bitterness can last a long time. Once begun, it can infect others, causing generations to hate future generations. King David let bad situations fester in his family until the poison burst out in civil strife. Let’s resolve to learn from the mistakes of an otherwise great man, and deal with unresolved matters long before they explode.

“Do as I say, not as I do.” Some parents try valiantly to raise their kids to behave better than they do. Good luck. Families are systems. Like chains, they break at the weakest link. And when that link is dad, the family is in serious trouble. That happened with King David of Israel, a mighty warrior in battle, but an uninvolved father at home. Today we look at a few lessons from a dysfunctional family.
