Running To Win

When You Choose Second Best #1 of 3

November 11, 2010
Why do we make poor choices? There are many reasons. Sometimes we sacrifice the permanent on the altar of the immediate. Whatever the reason, all of us make some bad decisions. The challenge then is what to do about them. Our current series brings hope to those of us who’ve made choices we’d give anything to make again. Today: lessons from the people of Israel during the conquest of Canaan.

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.

When you hear the word “Eden,” you think of an idyllic paradise with no worries: the ideal place to live a carefree life. But the real Eden didn’t stand a chance. When Adam and Eve sinned, paradise turned sour, and man’s fate was sealed. Life would be hard, and were it not for the grace of a redeeming God, there would have been no hope for our rebellious race.

In a perfect place, two people made a decision that would bring calamity to billions of people yet to be born. Adam and Eve had no excuse. Their sin brought immediate judgment, but it also brought mercy. God put in motion a plan to redeem mankind from the curse of sin, a plan signified by the first human clothing made of fig leaves. Today: we look at what that means.

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.

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.

Get those pens and pencils ready: this is serious stuff.

There is a costly war in Afghanistan. But there is a bigger war going on in our culture, with many more casualties.
