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.

When life gets tough, some people try to grin and bear it; others crack under the pressure. But Christians can have a different perspective. We can look toward a future glory that makes our present suffering miniscule in comparison.

Do you think life is tough? Have patience. Do you think you’ve always gotten the short end of life’s stick? Hold on to hope. As a member of the body of Christ, your inheritance is earning interest right now in the bank of heaven. And soon, you’ll enter into your glorious inheritance.

What if you discovered you’re an heir to a fortune, and didn’t know it? An heir is exactly what you are as a child of God. The Bible says “The Spirit bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God, and if children, then heirs… joint heirs with Christ.” The world to come is ours.

Believers in Christ have a whole new life, a life with new desires that God satisfies deeply as we walk in His light. Christians are “Children of an Awesome God,” being ushered into the kindness of their loving Father.

If you know Christ as Savior, you are storing up riches where “moth and rust cannot corrupt.” That bank is not of this world, and as a child of God, neither are you. Blessings await us, and there are more blessings than we can ever fathom.

One thing kids learn really quickly is how to get even. Seeking revenge is a natural reaction when we’re offended. But the Bible commands us to not seek revenge. Let’s rise above our instincts and allow God to be the One who makes things right!

Resolving conflicts with others can be as painful as it is necessary. We must extend forgiveness when every emotion tells us to “get even.” In this message we hear practical counsel on reconciliation—making things right with God and others.

Most people look forward to getting together with friends and relatives. But many dread these times because it means facing those who’ve hurt us, or worse, those we’ve hurt. How can we put damaged relationships back on track?
January 14, 2019
Ever hurt someone you care about? Handling the ongoing pain we cause when we sin is a daunting but necessary task. How should we seek forgiveness from those we’ve hurt? Can we expect to see God bring new hope out of our bad situations?
January 11, 2019
You can’t avoid gravity, and you can’t change the speed of light. Neither can you bypass God’s order that says “you reap what you sow.” God uses this principle to teach His children to avoid sin. Sometimes though, the lessons are hard.
