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.

It is easy to trust God when the sun is shining and all seems right with the world. But is He just as trustworthy when the bottom falls out of life? Where is God then? Hear the answer, as you listen to a message that was preached at Parkside Church's Cancer Survivor Support dinner.

Have you ever considered the possibility that your limitations and weaknesses are actually the key to your usefulness in service of the Lord Jesus Christ? In 2 Corinthians, Paul boasts of his weakness in order to testify about God’s strength.

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.

Alistair Begg shares words of wisdom from the flyleaf of his Bible with students on the threshold of a new academic year. First, if Jesus Christ is worth serving, He is worth serving well. Second, the matter of our head is an important matter: how we think and how we think about ourselves. Third, if our prayer is meager, then it is because we believe it to be supplemental and not fundamental. Fourth, relationships are vital. Finally, most spiritual progress is made through the difficult days and not through the days that yield success. Download the entire series of "Lessons ...

After celebrating the Passover with his disciples, Jesus warned them that they would all fall away. In doing so, he identified a danger that we face too. When we rely on ourselves and trust our own hearts, we are in a precarious position. But as Jesus' words also remind us, failure with God is never final.

If we feel overall pretty good about ourselves and what God thinks of us, that's a good sign, right? Be careful - as we learn in this study on grace, it is recognizing our need of forgiveness that opens us to the salvation that Jesus provides.

When we think of God's providence, it's often associated with world events or important decisions. But most of life isn't made up of those things - is He involved in the ordinary details of our lives too? The close of Paul's letter to Titus reminds us that God's love gives significance to even the little things: everything is under His loving care.

How are we as believers to respond when God's word is taught faithfully? Our love and devotion to Christ are reflected in the way we go about our tasks, no matter what our role in life is: Teacher, banker, homemaker, factory worker - all of us give daily evidence of our justification as we use our best abilities in the work God has called us to.
