The Persecuted Church

Whether it is the overt hostility faced by Christians in other parts of the world or subtle clashes with our own society’s ungodly mindset, all true believers experience some form of the “persecution” about which Paul warned Timothy. Beginning with these verses from 2 Timothy 3, Alistair Begg helps us consider the practical cost of living a godly life. As we learn to think biblically, we can respond to our circumstances in a Christlike manner.

Times of Difficulty

At the start of the third chapter of his second letter to Timothy, Paul warned this young pastor about difficulties he could expect from the surrounding culture. Alistair Begg helps us see that these same difficulties have faced every generation of believers, and explains how the world’s “solution” to the underlying problem is itself part of the problem. Only in Christ do we find the real answer: loving God above all.

Lessons For Life, Volume 3

In this series of messages, Alistair Begg takes a closer look at God’s providential care and the Christian’s appropriate response. We are reminded that God is sovereign over our entire existence and that our lives matter to Him. He uses even our mistakes and disappointments in the process of conforming us to the image of His Son.

While the Lord does not reveal His purposes to us in advance, our security is in knowing that we are in the hands of a loving, compassionate God. As a result, the Christian’s perspective on current issues will be drastically different from ...

Think, Focus, Learn

Some things are easy to understand. Other things require some thinking on our part before we grasp what we’re reading or hearing. In his final letter, the Apostle Paul called Timothy to this kind of reflection with regard to suffering for the sake of the Gospel. Alistair Begg points out how we can come to a correct understanding of suffering in our own lives: as we think biblically and focus on Jesus, we can learn to face difficulties in the strength and wisdom that He provides.

How to Maintain Pastoral Zeal while Avoiding Pastoral Burnout

How can burnout be a problem in ministry when Christ Himself encouraged His followers to give up everything for the sake of the Gospel? Christopher Ash explains that there is a vital difference between living sacrificially for Jesus and pursuing our calling in a way that leads to mental and physical exhaustion. When Christian leaders bear in mind that we are created by God from dust and that all of our endeavors are dependent on Him for success, we are reminded that Gospel ministry is a humbling privilege and enabled to rejoice that we are recipients of God's grace in ...

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.

For Such a Time as This, Part Two

When placed in a potentially life-threatening predicament, Esther responded with determined obedience to God. Just as God placed Esther in a unique position for a unique purpose, He has done the same for every Christian. Alistair Begg challenges us to consider whether every circumstance of our lives, both good and bad, may have been fashioned by God to place us where we are for such a time as this.

My Times are in Your Hand, Part One (Biola)

In this study of Psalm 31, Alistair Begg focuses on what it means for the Christian to be able to say, “My times are in Your hand.” Because of our confidence in the providence of God, we can be certain that we are not trapped by blind forces like fate or nature, nor are we tossed about by chance. To embrace the truth of God’s sovereignty is both liberating and comforting as we view our circumstances from the perspective of God’s purposes.

My Times are in Your Hand, Part Two (Biola)

Life can seem fragile and unbearable without the confidence that our times are in God’s hands. Whether we prosper or face uncertainty or adversity, the Christian response should not include pride, panic, or self-pity, but gratitude and faith in God. While there is great security found when we rest in God’s providence, Alistair Begg clarifies the responsibilities that remain ours as we humbly submit to the Lord’s will.

Deep-Seated Corruption (Westmont)

Judas Iscariot’s attitude and choices determined his destiny, yet God was able to use his sin – even his betrayal of Jesus – to achieve His purposes. In this study of Mark 14:10, we learn that God fulfills His sovereign plan without interfering with the individual’s freedom of choice. Alistair Begg reminds us that the treachery of Judas is a warning to the Church against the “profession of Christ without the possession of Christ.”
