Running To Win

Dr. Erwin W. Lutzer

When The Son Is Crowned #1 of 3

November 23, 2007
Everywhere you look, the Christian faith is under attack. Governments cater to radical Muslims, but Christians are fair game. It seems the world has gone topsy-turvy, and many ask the question, "Is God really in charge?" Today, Dr. Lutzer traces some blatant attacks on Christians, but then takes us to the Bible for the assurance that, despite all we see around us, God is still in control.

For many families, Thanksgiving gets everybody involved. Mom cooks, Dad carves the turkey, and the kids set the table. In the days of Jesus, ten lepers were miraculously healed. But only one got involved enough to thank the One who had healed him. Is it any different today? Thanklessness...it is a sign of a heart that does not know the God who sustains us every minute.

This is supposed to be the busiest week for travel in the entire year. At Thanksgiving, everybody wants to go back home. We want that turkey dinner, and we want to share it with loved ones. Some of us actually want to give thanks for God's provision during the past year. When ten lepers were healed by Jesus, only one bothered to say thanks. Are you among the nine, or are you the one?

It was Shakespeare who wrote, "How like a serpent's tooth is a thankless child." Indeed, ingratitude cuts like a knife. Our forefathers knew Who had brought them across the sea to a new homeland, and they knew to Whom they owed thanks. In a more godly era, Thanksgiving was made a federal holiday. So, are we truly thankful? Today: the story of one among ten men who gave God thanks.

We can still enjoy July 4 fireworks, but for many Christians, the liberties we celebrate are now being sharply curtailed. Under pressure from agenda-driven groups, what was once free speech is now a federal crime. In the public schools, tax money is used to indoctrinate our kids in the homosexual lifestyle. Is there a time to stand up and say "no?" Dr. Lutzer says "yes."

Someone has said that nothing is certain except death and taxes. Throughout all of history, governments have been taking your money. In Jesus' day, tax collectors were despised. After all, they took Jewish cash and gave it to the hated Roman occupiers. The wisdom of Jesus was never more clear than when He answered the question of who owes what to whom. Today: our true loyalties.

For a long time, Christians could comfortably wave the American flag, since their values were represented in "Old Glory." Now the government is beginning to repress the freedoms Christians once had, favoring the agendas of those desiring same-sex marriage and unrestricted abortion. When the red, white and blue no longer blends with the cross of Christ, what do believers do? To find out, stay with us.

When cars collide, you get tangled wreckage that is soon cleared. But when people collide, the wreckage can be life-long. The story of mankind is a saga of conflict. Wars and oppression mark the centuries, and only a supernatural intervention of God can heal the wounds we inflict on each other. Today, Dr. Lutzer tells how one man resolved a lifetime of hatred within his own family.

Like snowflakes, no two people are alike. Those differences bring great variety, but they can also plant seeds of conflict. Each of us is wired from birth to put self first. Only the Spirit of God can smooth the rough edges and help us extend ourselves in blessing to others. Today, Dr. Lutzer tells the story of a cab driver with a horrid past, a man who needed a friend.

As someone has said, "The church is wonderful. I love the church, it is the people in the church that I cannot stand." Well, we are not in the Garden of Eden anymore. Frictions can occur even between believers, as disagreements and personal agendas rise to the surface. Today, Dr. Lutzer exposes a not-so-secret secret: Christians do not always get along.
November 12, 2007
Despite the wide variety of Christian denominations these days, you will find some common elements in them all. Baptism and the Lord's Supper are two sacraments all Christians observe in one way or another. Today, Dr. Lutzer tells us what we share as fellow believers, despite our differences, and gives us a big-picture view of the church from God's perspective.
