5 Minutes With Pastor Lutzer | When You've Been Wronged Part 12

In this last episode of the series, “When You’ve Been Wronged,” we are considering “the why” behind Joseph’s seemingly astonishing decision to forgive. Why would he forgive his brothers after they had caused him so much turmoil? The answer is this: Joseph was able to step back and see the bigger picture. He knew that God had been there all along and that He was able to make every wrong right and orchestrate everything to His divine purposes. In this way, Joseph foreshadowed another to come, one who faced the greatest injustice imaginable and yet “entrusted Himself to Him who … Read More >

Today we continue the series, “When You’ve Been Wronged.” We’re looking at the life of Jacob—a biblical figure who, in many ways, made a mess of his life.

5 Minutes With Pastor Lutzer | Making the Best of a Bad Decision Part 4

From the beginning, the inclination of sinful humanity has been to hide from God. When Adam and Eve realized their sin, the last thing they wanted was to be in God’s righteous presence.

Do you need to come out of hiding today and face the God who offers, in Himself, the solution to your greatest problem?   Here are all of the ways that you can follow along with 5 Minutes With … Read More >

These days we often talk about “pivoting” when the unexpected occurs. But is God subject to such a necessity? When He found Adam and Eve in the garden after their sin, did He have to pivot and rearrange His plans to account for it?

God used circumstances in Jacob’s life to force him on a journey back home to reconcile with his estranged brother. He could no longer hide from his wrongdoings. On the way, he wrestles with God and is left in a dependent state. For the first time in Jacob’s life, he cannot rely on his own devices or schemes—and despite his fear, he has to reconcile with Esau God’s way. God has reconciled us to Himself, and He is the author of our reconciliation with each other.   Here are all of the ways that you can follow along with 5 … Read More >
