As we come to the close of Mark, it may seem that his Gospel account ends rather abruptly. But looking back through the book, we see that it is consistent with Mark's typical fast-paced writing style - in fact, it can provoke the reader's curiosity to learn more about our Lord's resurrection.

In Mark 4, Alistair Begg gleans six simple observations and applicable lessons about who Jesus is and what it means to follow Him. Sudden, unexpected storms arise, even in the lives of obedient believers. True conversion does not obliterate our human frailties and faltering faith, but believers can take comfort in knowing the tender patience, compassion, and steadfast hold of the Lord Jesus Christ throughout the storms of life.

Abraham’s journey of faith could be described as a series of new beginnings. As we follow his path we watch as he learned to trust God no matter what. Here we discover faith expressed in the changes and challenges of life and we learn that with God failure is never final.

There is no deficiency of anxiety in the world. Worry and fear have confronted humanity from the beginning of time and their effects can seem paralyzing. Alistair Begg instructs us to humble ourselves before God and throw the weight of anxiety upon the Lord. In doing so, we can be assured of His willingness to help.

What is spiritual "backsliding" and how does it occur? The challenge for Jonah was that while he knew and understood the clear direction of God for his life, his response was, "I have a better plan." As a result, Jonah learned some hard lessons which are instructive for us today, as well. Join Alistair this month as he shows us how our gracious God restores His wandering people.

When Jesus healed a blind man you’d think the community would celebrate his good fortune. But instead the religious zealots of the day immediately turned on this man and his family. Alistair Begg describes this dramatic controversy and its implications for us today.

The New Testament book of John records the miracles of Christ. And we learn that one reason they’re written down is that the evidence will produce belief in Jesus. In this message, Alistair Begg addresses the moment when Jesus gave a blind man his sight and how this affects us today!

|topics||Evangelism, Fear, Gospel|
Paul’s second letter to Timothy issues a direct challenge to all who are tempted to embrace pragmatism at the expense of truth. Timothy is confronted by confusion in the realm of doctrine and morality. It was vital that he understood the absolute priority of defining and declaring the gospel so as to be able to speak with authority in an age of uncertainty. Some 2000 years later we face the same challenge and these studies prepare us to meet it. If you feel inadequate for the task of sharing the Good News and wonder whether God can use someone like ...

Christ is perfect; Christians are not. We may pretend to be what we’re not; or pretend not to be what we are. It may make us question whether or not we truly belong to Christ. For the believer, though, the blood of Christ covers every sin – past, present, and future. There is, however, one unforgivable sin; and in this message Alistair Begg explains what it is and how it separates a true Christian from an unbeliever.
