When it comes to giving our financial resources to God’s work, how – and how much – should we give? In answering these questions, one principle must be grasped before any others will fall into place. Using Zaccheus and the rich young ruler as illustrations, Alistair Begg explains the necessity of an unreserved commitment to Jesus Christ before our giving will be done in the right spirit or in the right amount.

When Jesus entered Jerusalem on Palm Sunday, the people praised Him, but did they know who He really was? Sadly, the same crowd that gave Jesus praise upon His entry later called for His crucifixion. Alistair Begg suggests that professing Christians can also fall prey to this kind of hypocrisy when people honor Christ with their mouths, but their hearts are far from Him.

When the Gospel takes hold of our lives, it changes how we use our resources. Alistair Begg reminds us that it is ultimately what we know of God that moves us to the necessity of giving generously. As our minds are transformed, our answers to the questions “to what are we giving?” and “to whom are we giving?” change as well.

How important is it to us, in our daily lives, that we are pleasing to God? In these verses from Hebrews 13, we learn that the purpose of Jesus' sacrifice on Calvary was to "sanctify" us – to make us holy. Alistair Begg explains that we can rely on God's grace to strengthen us to resist compromise and dare to live for Him.
