Running To Win

Dr. Erwin W. Lutzer

You've Been Chosen Forever, Part 2 of 4 (Children of an Awesome God)

March 14, 2014
Comprehending God’s purpose in salvation is mind-expanding. In the majestic eighth chapter of Romans, this salvation is at the core of Paul’s teaching. In this message we will take a clear look at what, for many, is a hard-to-understand part of the Christian faith.

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.

As we believers mature in the faith, we come to realize that salvation is not so much a result of our seeking God as it is the result of God choosing us first. If God had not done this, none of us would ever have chosen Him.

God works in the lives of His people to bring about good, even when what’s happening is bad. Through the eye of faith, we who know Him can be sure that a better day is coming, and we can live triumphantly no matter what comes our way.

“All things work together for good to them who love God…” does this include tragedy and disasters? In this message we will discuss some ways God uses life’s rough spots to fashion in us the character He desires to see.

Only a Christian can be certain that all of life is heading toward a future glory. That is why believers know that all things, even the bad things, work together for good for those who love God.

Christians get socked by life’s reversals like anyone else. But there is a crucial difference. Believers know they have a permanent home where no foreclosure is possible and where all suffering will end. Pastor Lutzer tells us why we never groan alone during trials.

As believers, we long to be free of the limitations and pains of this body. Suffering is a lot easier to bear when we have hope for a future day when all suffering will cease.  That is the hope Paul speaks of in the marvelous eighth chapter of Romans.

It’s tough to be optimistic when slogging through hard times. Some try to grin and bear it; others crack under the pressure. But Christians can have a different perspective:  awaiting a future glory that makes our present suffering infinitesimal in comparison.

“The Spirit bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God, and if children, then…joint heirs with Christ.” Romans 8 gives believers the riches of heaven despite being unworthy sinners. God invites us into the throne room to partake of His bounty.

Do you think life is tough for you? Just wait. Do you think you have always gotten the short end of life’s stick? Just wait. As a member of the body of Christ, your inheritance is earning interest right now in the bank of heaven, and one day you will make a withdrawal.

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?”
