5 Minutes With Pastor Lutzer | Strength For The Journey Part 10

Today we take a hard look at the downward spiral of repercussions Lot had to face for his selfish choices. We must heed the warning and ask ourselves, “Am I making choices that will compromise my witness down the road?” Sin always brings greater loss than we bargain for.

Day 22 – Paid in Full

Today’s Reading: Mark 15:37-38; John 19:30Today’s Reference: Colossians 2:13-14 “And you, who were dead in your trespasses and the uncircumcision of your flesh, God made alive together with him, having forgiven us all our trespasses, by canceling the record of debt that stood against us with its legal demands. This he set aside, nailing it to the cross.” “It is finished.” In Greek, this cry of Jesus is one word, tetelestai, and in legal terms it could also mean “paid in full.” Jesus wants us to know that our sins are paid in full. There is not one little … Read More >

Day 10 – Who Mocks Jesus?

Today’s Reading: Matthew 27:39-44Today’s Reference: Hebrews 2:2-3a “For since the message declared by angels proved to be reliable and every transgression or disobedience received a just retribution, how shall we escape if we neglect such a great salvation?” “Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do.” Have you ever justified yourself, “Well, it’s just a tiny sin, not a bad one?” When we do that, you and I are one with the mockers who treated Jesus’ death with contempt—the people He prayed for on the Cross. Looked at in one way, we are actually worse. Those who … Read More >

Jesus Forgives The Greatest Crime | Cries From the Cross #2

Jesus’ executioners didn’t know the enormity of their crime against Him. But Jesus offered up a prayer of forgiveness for them to the Father. Pastor Lutzer discusses the extent to which Jesus’ prayer was answered. Since Jesus didn’t revile in return, how should we forgive those who commit outrageous sins against us?  Here are all of the ways that you can follow along with 5 Minutes With Pastor Lutzer: On our Podcast via iTunes and Google Podcasts On our Facebook page On our YouTube channel Transcript: Welcome to “5 Minutes with Pastor Lutzer.” I’m so glad that you joined us … Read More >

Day 29 – The Two Ways

Today’s Reading: Acts 3:11-4:4Today’s Reference: Hebrews 4:7b “Today, if you hear his voice, do not harden your hearts.”   The story of the crucifixion really only affects people in one of two ways. For some, and I pray you’re one of them, the story softens the heart. It makes us aware of the severity of our sin and the boundless love of God. It draws us to salvation for the first time, or makes us reaffirm our commitment to Christ in fear and trembling. But for others—far too many others—the story hardens the heart. Every time they hear it, … Read More >

Day 21 – A Greater Thirst

Today’s Reading: John 4:4-26Today’s Reference: Revelation 22:17 “The Spirit and the Bride say, ‘Come.’ And let the one who hears say, ‘Come.’ And let the one who is thirsty come; let the one who desires take the water of life without price.” “I thirst.” The One who called Himself the Living Water is thirsty—what irony! Jesus has given up the privileges of deity to drink the “cup of wrath” prepared for Him at full strength. He would do no miracle here to spare Himself one tiny bit of punishment for our sins. But I think this was more than … Read More >

Day 6 – The Most Spectacular Sin

Today’s Reading: Mark 14:41-46Today’s Reference: Romans 8:1-2 “There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. For the law of the Spirit of life has set you free in Christ Jesus from the law of sin and death.” It was the most spectacular sin in history, betraying the Messiah to a cruel death. As we saw yesterday, Judas responded with worldly sorrow that led to death, both physical and everlasting. But could he have been forgiven if he’d taken his guilt to Jesus instead of to men? Yes. Maybe there’s a sin in your own … Read More >
