Our “context” is the time and place in which we live – our society and the values of the people around us. The Apostle Paul wrote his final letter to Timothy with a goal of ensuring that future generations, no matter what their context, would hear the good news of salvation through Jesus Christ preached rightly. In this message, Alistair Begg addresses the importance of conserving the content of the Gospel message, because its eternal truths are needed by people in every culture, in every generation.

It's easy for local congregations to become comfortable and allow our outreach to neighbors and friends to wane. But the pattern of our Lord is a passionate commitment to spread the good news of the kingdom of God. In this message from Matthew 9:36-38, Alistair Begg explains that taking our responsibility to share the gospel seriously means making Jesus' priorities our own by seeing those around us clearly, caring deeply, thinking properly, and praying fervently.

In Part Two of this three-part message, we delve into additional factors that motivate the believer to witness to others. While the primary motivation is to bring glory to God, we are also commanded by Christ to witness, and our love for Him should compel us to seek the spiritually lost. Because Christ has reconciled us to God, we are now given the supreme privilege of taking this ministry of reconciliation to others.

In Part Three of this three-part message, Alistair Begg gives his closing thoughts on the remaining two motivational factors for witnessing; namely, the utmost certainty of the return of Christ, and Final Judgment. Additionally, the five main points of the message believers are to proclaim are outlined. For witnessing to be effective, there must be knowledge as well as conviction of the truth of the exclusive claims of Jesus Christ, and a passion to give our best to reach the lost for God's glory.
