Running To Win

Dr. Erwin W. Lutzer

You Will Sit Next to the King, Part 2 of 4 (Children of an Awesome God)

February 28, 2014

When Christians are born into God’s family, they find God very approachable. From Romans 8 we learn that the Holy Spirit births in them the desire for intimacy with God, in fact, even the desire to call Him “daddy.” Can you call God “Papa?”

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.

Keeping marriages together is the key to keeping society from crumbling. The family is in big trouble, and it is up to believers in Christ to demonstrate marital and family wholeness. Listening to each other is vital if a couple is to stay under the same roof.

Today you will hear teaching on marriage that could help you come back from the brink, principles to guide you as you navigate what may seem to be impossible waters. Your marriage can be put back together.

Over fifty percent of marriages are on the rocks, leaving a trail of sorrow, bitterness and wounded relationships. The Word of God has much to say about making marriage work, and Pastor Lutzer shares some clear guidelines that might make a crucial difference in your marriage.

If the family is the bedrock of society, it stands to reason that stable marriages are the bedrock of the family. That is why divorce is so damaging. In divorce, there are no winners.

The parable of the prodigal son has inspired many books. We can be sure that the father who waited for his son was a praying parent. Nothing else would have brought this son home.  
February 17, 2014
Only God can count the tears of parents whose kids have gone to the far country. Like the prodigal son in the Bible, their kids chose a path destined for failure. But there is great power in persistent prayer, and our God is a God who answers prayer.
