Behind the Scenes of Christmas

The fullness of time had come. God sent his Son into the world to seek and to save what was lost. In this series, Alistair draws from four key New Testament passages to take us behind the scenes, as it were, of the familiar Christmas story. The baby in the manger, he reminds us, is none other than the Lord of eternity; the birth of Mary’s son is nothing less than the arrival of the eternal Word into the world.

To a generation that does not know who Christ is, why he came or why it matters, these central ...

Right With God, Volume 1

By what means are we made right before God? All too often people encounter this question and make legalistic, religious observance or good works the answer. In the book of Galatians, Paul refutes this particular sentiment and demonstrates that simple faith in Christ’s atoning sacrifice is the only sure basis for our righteousness before God. This month, join Alistair as he explores this book of God’s Word.

False teachers had discarded the gospel of grace and had exchanged it for a “gospel” of works by observing the law—which is no gospel at all. Right With God is an exposition of ...


Happiness Revisited

It has been said that every person is endowed by our Creator with certain unalienable rights: life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Happiness, however, cannot be guaranteed by any human institution. In this message Alistair Begg considers the theme of happiness and challenges us to find it in God alone.

A natural response to sin is to cover it up, assuming that we will be able to move forward without negative consequences. The example of King David proves that this is not the case.

The Gospel According to Luke, Volume 9

Luke’s gospel is the longest book in the New Testament. When you consider it along with the other book that he wrote, namely the Acts of the Apostles, Luke is responsible for over a quarter of New Testament material.

Luke was one of Paul’s most significant companions and several things about him help us understand why God laid his hand upon this man. He was a Gentile, the only Gentile writer in the whole of the New Testament. He was also a doctor and an educated man. He was an historian. In fact, he was more of a historian than ...

Principles in Giving

Drawing from Paul’s practical encouragement in 2 Corinthians 9, Alistair Begg reminds us that although generous giving brings its own rewards, this should never be the incentive for our generosity. Because giving is an expression of our faith, it should be worked out privately and prayerfully. In this way, we can give cheerfully and God will be glorified.

Prelude to Giving

One of the characteristics of a Christian is generosity that is unhindered by severe trial or extreme poverty. Any consideration of giving must begin with the understanding that all that we have was first given to us by God. Alistair Begg explores the biblical guide-lines for financially supporting the work of the Gospel and notes that our gratitude for God’s grace should be reflected in our giving.

Pattern For Giving

While tithing was established as the basic pattern of giving in the Old Testament, the New Testament neither legislates nor dismisses the tithe. Pulling from the Old and New Testaments, Alistair Begg expounds on the grace of giving as it relates specifically to tithing. The Bible gives clear guidelines to assist Christians in establishing their own personal pattern of giving, first and foremost to the local church.

Firm Foundation, Volume 6

The 13th chapter of 1 Corinthians may be one of the most beloved and most widely recognized portions of Scripture, but it also may be one of the most misapplied. When it is taken in isolation, this chapter becomes vulnerable to all kinds of interpretations, many of which are incomplete or misleading. In the first part of this volume of Firm Foundation, Alistair Begg connects Paul’s description of love to the immediate concern that the apostle had for the church in Corinth. By doing so, he gives us a richer and more faithful understanding of what Christian love should be ...

Many of us are familiar with the questions that individuals regularly bring to God. Yet how many of us are aware of the questions that God brings to individuals?

Scripture and Tradition, Part 2

What is the basis of authority? Does it lie solely in Scripture or is it Scripture and a little bit of tradition? How much of a role should tradition play? As we continue with Part Two of “Scripture and Tradition,” we consider an example of what can happen when we allow our traditions to become more important than God’s Law.

Series: The Gospel According to Mark, Volume 3


The Heart Of The Matter

Having just demonstrated that tradition must bow to Scripture, Jesus turns to the question of purity versus defilement. Since we know that Christianity is rational, historical and empirical, we must define “uncleanliness” and what makes us clean and right before God.

Jesus Cares

As we read this familiar story of Jesus walking on the water, we must not lose our bearings. This story is far more significant than telling us that we don’t need to worry about the scary winds and waters.

In this study, Alistair identifies the essential elements of the believer’s life, starting first with conversion and then elaborating the manner in which believers are to act out their faith "To be a Christian," he says, "is to declare that Jesus is Lord.

In Part Two of this two-part message about belonging, the biblical basis for church discipline is clarified and we learn how the local church is God's special provision for discovering and exercising spiritual gifts, and for praising God. Guidelines are provided to help the individual determine their God-given role in the local church, and to fulfill that role to God's glory so that the Church may be built up. Finally, characteristics of a biblically sound church are outlined so that the believer may be wise in choosing the church in which they will worship, learn, and serve.

The Essence of Saving Faith

In this Easter message, Alistair looks to Paul’s summation in 1 Corinthians 15 concerning the resurrection of the Lord Jesus. Either Jesus is the resurrected Lord and we need to bow before him, or we are still without hope in our sin. There is no salvation without confession and faith in Jesus Christ. It is within our hearts, the whole of our being, that we believe and are put right with God through faith in the resurrection of His Son, the incarnate God.

Justice and Love

God is perfectly loving; and He demonstrates this in His mercy. It is also true that God is perfectly just; and He demonstrates this in the fact that He cannot let sin go unpunished. These truths may seem completely opposite and incompatible, yet they are not. In this study Alistair Begg teaches us how God demonstrates both His justice and love in the cross of Jesus Christ.


An Ill-Timed Request

Have you ever thought that if you just do more good works than bad that you might be able to secure your place in the Kingdom of God? Over and over in the gospels, we learn that Jesus’ disciples felt deserving of such honor and glory for themselves. In this message, Alistair examines one such instance and what Jesus says about the true means by which we enter the Kingdom of God.

The Strength of Weakness

The Apostle Paul had a problem. A thorn in his flesh inhibited his natural ability to live his life and serve God as he wished. He prayed for the removal of his limitation, but Jesus had something better in mind, and he told Paul, "My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness" (2 Cor. 12:9). The entire Bible reveals that power is found in weakness for those who know Christ.

Being a father can provide constant challenges, especially when trying to find the right balance between giving discipline and giving grace.

Contentment

If you could choose one word to describe your life, would you say that you’re content? For most of us, that’s the last word we’d use! Alistair Begg turns to the pages of Scripture for a realistic look at personal satisfaction and what it means to have a truly thankful heart.

The Goodness of God

It’s the time of year to start thinking about picking the right gift for loved ones. In this message, we’re reminded that God Himself is the One who gives perfect gifts at the perfect time. Every good and perfect gift comes from God. Every breath of life, every good night’s sleep, every true friend, every word of Scripture. You could write your own list of blessings, too as Alistair Begg teaches on The Goodness of God.

Paul the Preacher

At his hearing, Paul defended his commitment to Christ and preached a message of repentance. Alistair Begg shows how Paul’s candid, persistent, respectful presentation of the Gospel sets an example for all who preach. Despite the clarity and sincerity of the delivery, the response to the message will be varied until the heart of the listener is ready to receive it.

A Man with a Mission

In the courtroom before Governor Festus and King Agrippa, Paul explained how he was transformed from Saul, the chief persecutor of Christians, to the Apostle Paul, commissioned servant of Christ. Through this study of Acts 26:16-18, Alistair Begg illustrates how God calls unlikely individuals to be witnessing servants of Christ. God’s call is not dependent upon our special talents, but upon His authority, His security, and the clarity found in His Word.
