Paul’s appearance before the Sanhedrin provides a glimpse of the ordinariness of the extraordinary apostle Paul. Alistair Begg traces the thread that shows how God worked in all the details of Paul’s life, including violence, hostility, regrets, and disappointments, and reminds us that God continues to work out His purpose for each of us through the good, bad, and ordinary events of our lives.

Paul’s words in 2 Timothy 4:2-5 are the mandate for all those who are called to pastoral ministry. Martyn Lloyd-Jones once commented that "the work of preaching is the highest and greatest and most glorious calling to which anyone can ever be called." He went on to say that "the most urgent need in the Christian church today is for true preaching and as it is the greatest and most urgent need in the church it is, obviously, the greatest need in the world also." To a generation in which the priority of preaching has been sadly diminished, the apostolic ...

It is a popular contemporary notion that if you are devoted to God and obedient to His commands, then your life will be easy and pleasant. Paul’s experience illustrates that the opposite is true: the life of a faithful servant of God is often fraught with pain and struggle. Alistair Begg draws our attention to the evidence of God’s providence that prepared Paul for difficulty and assures us that God continues to change, protect, and guide the lives of believers.

The Apostle Paul was in no doubt as to his direction and purpose in life. In the very heart of this letter to the Philippians, he makes his focus clear. "I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus." Throughout this letter, Paul urges upon these dear Philippian believers the need for them to be equally focused when it comes to the matter of living for Christ. This series of studies will not only prove useful for the Christian who is seeking to get "back on track," but also ...

Upon his arrival in Jerusalem, Paul delivered a report of his latest mission trip to the church leadership, who responded with genuine God-centered praise. His arrival, however, also forced the church to confront rumors about his ministry that had run rampant in his absence. Alistair Begg explains that even in his approach to this issue, Paul’s overarching desire was to promote the Gospel and unity of God’s people.

In Acts 21:1-16, the Holy Spirit appeared to give conflicting guidance first to Paul as he prepared to go to Jerusalem, and then to his friends, who desperately urged him not to go. Alistair Begg points out that the Holy Spirit cannot contradict Himself, but man’s deductions are fallible, even when they are admirable. In this emotional parting, we are given an illustration of the precious connection between those who love Christ, and we are cautioned to not allow our human emotions to cloud God's divine warnings.

Each of the Gospel writers considers the final steps of Christ to the cross, highlighting particular details according to their specific purpose. John is concerned with establishing the supremacy and victory of the Lord Jesus over the degradation and humiliation to which He is subjected. It is apparent from John’s account that Pilate was seeking to evade the necessity of making a decision about Jesus. In that respect he’s probably like many of us. We really don’t want to have to face this issue. Pilate, though, was unable to adopt a posture of neutrality... and so are we. We may ...

We cannot always interpret the events of life in terms of their immediate impact or personal implications. Throughout the Bible, as in the book of Ruth, God providentially works in the lives of ordinary people leading ordinary lives to accomplish His extraordinary purposes. Everything is part of God’s overarching plan, beginning in Genesis and continuing until Christ’s return. Even in the unremarkable lives of a widowed foreigner and an Israeli farmer, God’s plan of redemption unfolds. Have no doubt; our times are in His hands.

Ruth and Boaz were expecting a baby, and that was a miracle in itself. But who would have expected that a penniless foreign widow would marry an Israeli farmer and help establish the family line of King David and Jesus? In the immensity of God’s providence, He orders the very details of every birth. He fashions each of us purposefully, specifically, uniquely and intricately. From the moment of conception, every life is a gift from God. Every life has value. Every life has purpose.

As a man of God, Boaz was determined to act in accordance with this law of redemption – even though it meant waiting and risking the loss of Ruth to a closer kinsman-redeemer. When Boaz became Ruth’s husband, he assumed both the privilege of buying the family land and the duty of ensuring the family line of Ruth’s first husband would continue. Boaz shows us how our Kinsman-Redeemer, Jesus Christ, takes us as penniless aliens and provides us with security, a ...

It wasn’t a leap year, but it was a leap of faith. As Ruth casts herself at the feet of Boaz and asks him to cover her with his blanket, she is asking for his commitment to cover her with his provision and protection. In honoring her request, Boaz foreshadows Jesus, our Kinsman-Redeemer. When we cast ourselves at the feet of Christ, Jesus covers us with the blood of His covenant. He provides. He protects. He calls us His own and makes us His Bride.

“He executes justice for the fatherless and the widow, and loves the sojourner, giving him food and clothing” (Deut. 10:18). In God’s kindness and compassion, the Mosaic Law made provision for those who were bereft, alone and in need. While Boaz’s act of kindness toward Ruth complied with the covenant law, it was not done out of any sense of compulsion or legalism. Boaz demonstrates the character of God, as he graciously and lovingly makes a widowed foreigner part of his family. Boaz points us forward to the One Who longs for all to become members of His eternal family.

Sometimes we’re called to step out in faith, not knowing the destination or the outcome. Ruth literally had to step out in faith as she went to the barley fields seeking someone in whose eyes she could find favor. As she proceeds in a seemingly random direction, God is actually ordering the events of Ruth’s life, leading her to work, food and a dramatically different future. Ruth had committed herself to the God of Israel, and she would soon discover that He was able to do immeasurably more than she could ever ask or imagine.

Throughout history, the Church has been influenced by unsung heroes – unnamed men and women who were significant in fulfilling the purposes of God. In Acts 11:21-30, we meet Barnabas, one such individual. Barnabas played a key role in Paul's ministry by offering compassion, exhortation, and encouragement to others, ever on the lookout for the evidence of God's grace. The Church today continues to need faithful, Spirit-filled individuals who will invest their time and effort to extend warmth, kindness, compassion and encouragement – men and women who will dare to be a Barnabas!

Little is known of Ananias except that he was used mightily by the Lord in the transformation of Saul of Tarsus to Paul the Apostle. He wasn't chosen because he was particularly well-known or popular, but rather because he was open to the Lord's call, obedient to His command, and ready and willing to serve. Through this study of Acts 9:10-20, Alistair Begg reveals how God continues to use seemingly insignificant disciples today to do great work for His Kingdom.

It is a daunting challenge to raise children with Christian values in a world that is increasingly antagonistic toward biblical truth and conviction. Gleaning wisdom from Proverbs 22 and Ephesians 6, Alistair Begg instructs parents – particularly fathers – in in the biblical principles of training children without exasperating them. Consistent, tender parenting requires constant prayer, complete dependence on God’s grace, and a steadfast focus on eternity.

All of us have places that we regard as memorable – places where significant events took place in our lives. While the Prodigal Son thought he could create some of these memorable places by leaving his father’s house, he found only emptiness and restlessness in his decision. In the end, the most unlikely place became the most likely place to change the Prodigal Son’s life forever.

Jesus tells a series of parables in Luke 15 that demonstrate God’s willingness to seek out sinners. Like the Prodigal Son, we all have sought our own path and have forsaken the God who gives us our every provision. In spite of our rebellion, and often in our lowest state, God lovingly pursues His children and restores a relationship with them that was broken.
