The Annunciation

Among the core teachings of Christianity, the virgin birth can be one of the most difficult for the human mind to accept. Yet in Luke's Gospel account, we see Mary respond in trust to the angel's mysterious message. Alistair Begg encourages us to consider the unique nature of Jesus' miraculous birth in the context of His divine mission and to respond, like Mary, in simple faith.

Elizabeth and Zechariah

After years of prophetic silence, God announced the birth of John the Baptist to one faithful couple. As Alistair Begg explains, the announcement illustrates the mystery of God's work throughout history. The events surrounding the birth of Jesus remind us that the providence of God can be seen at work in ordinary events, both good and bad.

Thanksgiving 101

Although our hearts naturally praise the things we value, thanksgiving – the giving of thanks – is a choice: we choose what we are thankful for, and we choose to whom we are thankful. In this message, Alistair Begg encourages us to choose to give thanks every day to the Lord, both because He is God and because He is good.

Anything “new” can seem very appealing. However, as the Apostle Paul cautioned his young protégé Timothy, our belief and teaching must always be founded on the timeless truth of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Nunc Dimittis

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.

My Times are in Your Hand, Part One (Biola)

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.

My Times are in Your Hand, Part Two (Biola)

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.

All In!, Part One

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.

All In!, Part Two

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.
