Timothy's mentor and friend, the apostle Paul, was nearing the end of his ministry, and soon the Church would be led by this younger man and his contemporaries. As Alistair Begg explains, the strength for this task could only be found in the power of God. Recognizing that God was the source of strength and the author of his message, Timothy was equipped, and so are we, to pass on the gospel to future generations.

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.

As a student of history knows, wars fought over the centuries had start and end dates. As the sober-minded Christian knows, however, we are in a continual war that will not end on this side of eternity. Alistair Begg explains that our enemy is powerful and the danger is real, but God has equipped us with all of the weapons and defenses we need for this long and grueling fight.

In an increasingly unsettled world, it benefits us to heed the words of the Psalmist and trust wholly in his God. Man is mortal and unable to save himself; it is foolish to trust in anyone or anything but God. Alistair Begg encourages us to entrust everything to the Maker of heaven and earth.

In Philippians 2, Paul points us to the foundational attribute needed for harmonious relationships - humility. Instead of giving us principles for how to develop a humble heart, Paul turns our gaze to the Lord Jesus Christ. He encourages us to consider Jesus’ attitude as the very example to replicate in our relationships with each other.

The pathway to holiness emerges from reflecting on the wonder of the saving work that Jesus accomplished on the cross. He has done all that is necessary in relationship to sin, to God, to Satan, and to us. We respond with a life marked by holy devotion, feeding on the Word of God, living in the fear of God, and resting in the grace of God.
