Discipleship in 3-D, Part One

Sometimes a picture can help us to understand profound truths. In the second chapter of his final letter to Timothy, the Apostle Paul uses word pictures to describe Christian discipleship. Alistair Begg explains how God’s grace empowers us to obey Him, like a devoted soldier, and to live within the rules He prescribes, like a disciplined athlete.

Discipleship in 3-D, Part Two

Farmers reap a harvest through patient attention to the daily demands of their crops and consistent hard work. Like the farmer, most of our Christian experience consists in diligent attention to the ordinary routines of life. In this message from 2 Timothy 2:4-6, Alistair Begg explores this comparison. Although the prospect can seem daunting, we can be encouraged that our obedience to the law of God in the daily routines of life and ministry flows from communion with the Lord Jesus and is enabled by the grace of God.

Ecclesiastes Speaks Today, Part One

How does one do Gospel ministry in a culture that is undergoing a serious moral crisis? In the opening session of the 2014 Basics Conference, Alistair Begg answers this question with a surprising reply: preach through Ecclesiastes! With a message as equally relevant and timely today as it was then, Ecclesiastes demands a fresh look.

Passing on the Truth, Part Two

Our “context” is the time and place in which we live – our society and the values of the people around us. The Apostle Paul wrote his final letter to Timothy with a goal of ensuring that future generations, no matter what their context, would hear the good news of salvation through Jesus Christ preached rightly. In this message, Alistair Begg addresses the importance of conserving the content of the Gospel message, because its eternal truths are needed by people in every culture, in every generation.

Seven Vital Truths About a Culture of Prayer

The early Church clearly understood that prayer is at the center of Gospel ministry. Today, however, many churches have lost conviction regarding our urgent need to keep prayer at the heart of our mission. Daniel Henderson explains that praying churches are not primarily a matter of programming, but of a culture of prayer that begins with leaders who seek God earnestly and grows as prayer becomes the center of every aspect of ministry.

Preaching a Psalm of Lament

Christopher Ash goes to the book of Psalms and helps the pastor see rich truths ready to be preached. Encouraging pastors to help their audience get it, feel it and want it, Ash does exactly this as he navigates Psalm 74. Moving through deep grief to intense confidence, Ash explains how this Psalm shows God’s sovereignty over all evil.

The Lord is God

God can use the most unusual people to accomplish his purposes. In this message from 1 Kings 18, Gary Millar contrasts a little known person, Obadiah, with the famous prophet Elijah and encourages us to see past the exceptional and unusual person to an exceptional God who is working all things for His glory. In a stunning display of God’s power, God showed the false gods of Baal for what they really were: nothing. In displaying His judgment and mercy, God leaves us with a question: will we listen to God as He has spoken in the Lord Jesus?

Preaching a Psalm of Praise

The Psalmists' exhortations to praise can be discouraging if not viewed in light of the Gospel. In this message, Christopher Ash turns to the book of Psalms to lead us into a deeper of understanding of who God is. Psalm 146 demonstrates how the typical introduction of asking, “How’s your praise life?” is inadequate. Instead, the Psalms invite us to see how Jesus rightfully and perfectly fulfilled these exhortations to praise, enabling us to live a life of praise to God as well.

How to Maintain Pastoral Zeal while Avoiding Pastoral Burnout

How can burnout be a problem in ministry when Christ Himself encouraged His followers to give up everything for the sake of the Gospel? Christopher Ash explains that there is a vital difference between living sacrificially for Jesus and pursuing our calling in a way that leads to mental and physical exhaustion. When Christian leaders bear in mind that we are created by God from dust and that all of our endeavors are dependent on Him for success, we are reminded that Gospel ministry is a humbling privilege and enabled to rejoice that we are recipients of God's grace in ...
