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.

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.

scripture Mark 3-5

Mark’s Gospel, the first to be written, emphasizes the certainty that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and the fulfillment of God’s purpose. With nearly a third of the narrative dedicated to the passion and the resurrection of Jesus, the Gospel of Mark aims to persuade all who read to believe in Jesus. Attributed to John Mark, a contemporary of the disciple Peter, the Gospel is identified as Peter’s first-hand account of life with Jesus. Not a creator, but a conscientious compiler of the information, Mark provides vivid descriptions of the relationship between Jesus and His disciples, Jesus ...

It is often in the worst of circumstances when the Christian must affirm the unwavering faithfulness of God. That was the case when the book of Lamentations was written, and it remains true today. When hard times come, we bring to mind the faithfulness of God and have hope.

Joseph of Arimathea was wealthy, well-respected, and religious. He was also a secret disciple of Jesus until the events of the crucifixion brought him into the open with a courageous request to care for the body of Jesus. The cross of Christ confronts us just as it confronted Joseph. Alistair Begg challenges us to consider whether we are living as secret disciples and to respond to the good news of the Gospel in repentance and faith.
