When Paul commended Timothy for his "sincere faith," what did he mean? Beginning with this passage in 2 Timothy, Alistair Begg examines the nature of saving faith and explains how it must be the basis for ministry. Like the young pastor Paul addresses, we must also develop the gifts that God has given us in order to bear spiritual fruit.

Simeon was a faithful man who trusted that God would be faithful to all of his promises. When Mary and Joseph brought Jesus to the temple, Simeon recognized and embraced him, not only as the source of his own peace, but as the Messiah who would be the glory of Israel and the light of the world. In this message from Luke 2:29-32, Alistair Begg encourages each of us to embrace the Lord Jesus as Simeon did, finding in him the fulfillment of all that God has promised.

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.

In Romans 12:2, Paul warns readers not to be conformed to the ways of this world, but rather, to be transformed by God and conformed to the image of Christ. Alistair Begg explains that a Christian’s way of thinking changes as a result of God’s revelation of Himself. Our perspective on the world should be shaped by our view of the Kingdom, resulting in fully committing ourselves to doing God’s will.

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.

Every so often people may question why a Christian's life is different. In John 3, Nicodemus understood who Jesus was as a teacher yet did not understand how belief in Jesus the Savior dramatically transforms lives. Jesus explained to Nicodemus that a life changed by God is a transformation so great that it's like a new birth. Alistair Begg shows us how Jesus emphasized the personal responsibility of each one to believe in Him so that he or she may have eternal life.

If you had just seen a multitude of angels, what would you be talking about when you went into town? The shepherds in Luke 2 focused on what the angels had said - their message of a Savior's birth - and not on the drama of the experience. Mary also pondered the meaning of the shepherds' testimony. In concluding this series on Jesus' birth, Alistair Begg draws our attention to the historical nature of the gospel accounts: this is evidence that supports belief, not just an emotional response.
