Sanctification

Are you confused by the terms “sanctification” and “justification”? Unfortunately, many people do not understand the difference between the two and often think of their sanctification as their justification. In this sermon Alistair Begg explains that we do not have to become righteous before God declares us righteous. Instead, once we have been declared righteous God begins the process of conforming us to the image of Christ by the power of His Spirit.

The Faithfulness of God

If you were to thumb through Paul’s first letter to the Thessalonians, you’d find a sentence at the end that says, “May God Himself sanctify you through and through.” Alistair Begg helps us unpack the phrase and understand both the product and the promise behind sanctification.

Listening to the Word of God

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.

Do Not Grieve the Holy Spirit

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.

Give Thanks

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.

FRANgelism

"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 ...

Learning How to Worship-An Intro

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.

Cultivating Kindness

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.
