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.

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.

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.

In Paul’s letter to the Roman church, he urges his readers to present themselves as “living sacrifices, holy and acceptable to God”- a living, lasting, and logical commitment in response to God’s mercy. Alistair Begg reminds us that Jesus held nothing back when He took our punishment on the cross so that we may be redeemed and challenges us to be wholly committed to God.

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.

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.

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.
