Simeon was a faithful man who trusted that God would be faithful to all of his promises. When Mary and Joseph brought Jesus to the temple, Simeon recognized and embraced him, not only as the source of his own peace, but as the Messiah who would be the glory of Israel and the light of the world. In this message from Luke 2:29-32, Alistair Begg encourages each of us to embrace the Lord Jesus as Simeon did, finding in him the fulfillment of all that God has promised.

Remembering God's faithfulness in the past helps us trust Him in the here and now. Are there ways we can help ourselves remember? Alistair Begg explains how the Jews did that very thing, in Esther 9, when they instituted the feast of Purim.

As we begin a study of the Old Testament book of Esther, we are helped by stepping back to consider God's revealed plan for all of human history. With this perspective, we can better understand the relevance of Esther's story and see God's Providence at work.

scripture Psalms 90:12

type Sermon
id 2856

Contemporary influences encourage us to “live for the moment” without regard for eternal consequences. This kind of thinking is merely an illusion. The psalmist teaches us to “number our days aright” and to be mindful of using our time to gain a heart of wisdom. Speaking to a college student audience, Alistair Begg cautions against squandering opportunities and instead, remaining attentive to the ultimate relationship that exists between our mortality and sin.

The way in which we react to circumstances reveals a great deal about us and affects the reactions of other people. Alistair Begg demonstrates how Nehemiah is an excellent model of God-centered leadership. In prayerful dependence on God, Nehemiah established a vision and a practical plan for rebuilding the dilapidated wall around Jerusalem. Through his example, we see that God equips ordinary people with extraordinary gifts to meet out-of-the-ordinary challenges for His glory.

When God establishes a vision, effective leadership is necessary to communicate that vision in ways that are understandable and practical to those whose efforts will bring it to fruition. In this study of Nehemiah 2:11-20, Alistair Begg examines various aspects of Nehemiah’s leadership that helped to plant his vision in the hearts of God’s people to rebuild the Jerusalem wall, despite apathy and opposition. If a vision is God-given and humbly presented, then God will earth it in the hearts of people and move them to respond.
