Ecclesiastes Speaks Today, Part Two

The final chapter of Ecclesiastes calls us to fear God and commit ourselves to Him. As Alistair Begg demonstrates, this chapter details for the audience the opportunity of youth, the frailty of life, the reality of death, and the certainty of judgment. Into a culture of abject meaninglessness that is not unlike our own, Ecclesiastes also gives us something to live for.

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.

The Resurrection

Christians today celebrate Easter Sunday with joy, knowing that the Lord Jesus is risen, but eyewitnesses to the event weren’t immediately sure what had happened. The description they provided is based primarily on evidence, not emotion, and we must employ both faith and reason to understand it. Using the Apostle John’s account of the resurrection, Alistair Begg encourages us to thoughtfully consider the scriptural record and to respond in faith, affirming that “He is risen indeed!”

Your Will, O God

Old Testament Jews offered sacrifices day after day to remind them of sin and to focus their attention on God's promise that He would forgive. Alistair Begg explains that the promise was fulfilled in the Lord Jesus Christ, who offered Himself as an effective payment for sin. With confidence that Jesus has dealt with sin once and for all, we can draw near to Him in faith, hold fast to the promise of His presence, and encourage one another in hope.

Palm Sunday

Some people celebrate Palm Sunday out of a sense of obligation or nostalgia, while others view the occasion with skepticism. As Alistair Begg explains, the details of Jesus’ triumphal entry into Jerusalem can only be truly viewed through the lens of believing faith. Like the disciples, we cannot understand that Jesus is Messiah and King until the grace of God opens our eyes.

Passing on the Truth, Part One

Timothy's mentor and friend, the apostle Paul, was nearing the end of his ministry, and soon the Church would be led by this younger man and his contemporaries. As Alistair Begg explains, the strength for this task could only be found in the power of God. Recognizing that God was the source of strength and the author of his message, Timothy was equipped, and so are we, to pass on the gospel to future generations.
