The Work of the Word, Part Four November 18, 2014
The Bible’s power to change us stems from the fact that it is God’s Word, spoken by Him and absolutely trustworthy. Simply agreeing with this fact is not enough, though - in order to hear God speak, we must read His Word. In this message, Alistair Begg encourages us to read the Scriptures prayerfully every day and apply what we learn, allowing the Word to do its work in our hearts.
Providence in Christ's Death November 17, 2014
The death of Jesus was an act of great injustice, but the Bible tells us that it also happened according to the plan and purpose of God. In this message, Alistair Begg examines the crucifixion in light of the doctrine of providence from the perspective of God the Father, the Lord Jesus, and the human participants. Although it is a mystery that we cannot fully understand, the injustice of the crucifixion accomplished God’s plan from eternity to demonstrate the breadth of His love by redeeming sinners.
The Work of the Word, Part Three November 10, 2014
Paul commanded Timothy, his protégé, to hold to the Bible alone in his ministry, relying on its power to do God’s work. In this message, Alistair Begg expresses the same concern and provides some examples of what can happen when church leaders lack this commitment to the truth of Scripture. When we truly believe the Bible, its teachings impact both our beliefs and our behavior – how we think and what we do.
Providence Defined November 9, 2014
Are our lives determined by fate or chance? Did God create the universe and then step aside to watch history unfold from a distance? In this message, Alistair Begg challenges us to consider that according to the Bible, the details of our lives actually unfold within the providence of God. He is working in every circumstance – good and bad – for His glory. The Christian can take comfort in the knowledge that all of our days unfold in the care of our loving Father.
