The Church is living in an age where the proclamation of God’s Word is often distorted to support beliefs that contradict the essential truths of the Christian faith. In this context, Christians have a responsibility to listen very carefully whenever the Word of God is proclaimed. Alistair Begg instructs us to test everything we hear against the bar of Scripture and to be keenly aware of religions that deny such things as the true identity of Jesus and the Gospel of free grace.

How can God, who is never taken by surprise, be grieved by our actions? The Bible tells us that when we walk in an ungodly way, it is an offense against God’s love that brings sorrow to the Holy Spirit. Alistair Begg shows us that when we do this we will be deprived of the joy, assurance, and peace that should accompany our salvation.

It is easy to give thanks when everything is going smoothly, but how easy is it to give thanks when the circumstances in our life take a turn for the worse? As hard as it might be, Scripture calls us to thank God during the good times and the bad. Alistair Begg suggests that the key to having this kind of attitude is to have a firm understanding of God’s providence, believing that He controls all things according to His own purposes.

"I pray that you may be active in sharing your faith, so that you will have a full understanding of every good thing we have in Christ." (Philemon 6) The more we share the "good news" with others, the more we become aware of the wonder of our salvation. These studies call us to take seriously the opportunities for evangelism which are around us every day. Only a few will be called to go to the ends of the earth, but are called to expend ourselves in the cause of telling our friends, relatives, associates and neighbors about who Jesus ...

God is very concerned that we worship Him alone and that we worship Him correctly. We learn from Alistair Begg that our worship needs to be biblical, rational, and spiritual. In order to worship in this way, we must first be made alive by His Spirit and then assisted by God’s Spirit as we bring honor to Him through worship.

Genuine Christian kindness is not passive, or simply not doing people any harm. Alistair Begg reminds us that instead, genuine Christian kindness is shown in extravagant gestures of self-sacrifice toward all men, including those who are not particularly attractive in our sight. When this kind of love is demonstrated, it often softens hearts to receive the gospel with gladness.

Since God has shown us a tremendous amount of patience, shouldn’t we be willing to show patience to those around us? This is often hard, especially in a society that is growing more and more hostile to the commands of God’s Word. Our first instinct is to challenge those who disregard the things of God, often in a cold and condemning way. Alistair Begg exhorts us to lay aside our impatient impulses and show the same kindness that Christ showed to poor, weak, and needy sinners.
