Why are so few people truly happy? Alistair Begg surveys the story of one man's quest for personal fulfillment as recorded in the Book of Ecclesiastes, where we discover that learning, pleasure, laughter, and material possessions cannot satisfy our longing to know the meaning of life. All of our pursuits are stained by sin, and we cannot discover life that is truly life apart from the God who has made Himself known.

Amidst all of life’s distractions, we need to remember that our lives are uncertain. Alistair Begg teaches us that when we forget who has established our days, we will become frustrated when our own plans don’t work out. Instead of fighting against our inability to predict the future, we must humbly admit that our lives are in the hand of our Maker.

Whatever plans we arrange in this life are under God’s purposeful control. This is why it is imperative that we do not become proud or overconfident in the plans we make for the future.

Some Christians may feel guilty over the amount of possessions they have, especially since there are so many needy people in the world. Alistair Begg teaches us that earthly riches are an expression of God’s kindness, but it is the misuse of wealth that the Bible warns against. When we find security in our earthly treasures instead of our heavenly treasure, we have turned away from the only thing that will last forever – our union with Christ.

“Faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead.” The letter of James is vital reading whenever the believer is tempted to be content with knowledge devoid of action, to cultivate the world’s friendship rather than God’s, and to tolerate disorder and selfish ambition. As we’ll learn, James shows us that the outward display of faith will find its roots in the inward transformation that has already taken place. These studies provide a forceful and timely reminder that our creed must be seen in our conduct and our attitude must display itself in action.

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. The power of God is clearly seen best against the background of human inadequacy. The truth is that our inadequacy may actually prove to ...
