My Times are in Your Hand, Part Two (Biola) January 12, 2014
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.

Name Above All Names December 30, 2012
The familiar terms in Isaiah 6 (Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace) are not just titles of the incarnate Christ – they are roles He fills in the life of the believer.

Let Us Love One Another July 27, 2012
How can we know that we have eternal life? What does it look like when we truly love God?

Ordinary People and Everyday Events July 23, 2012
When we think of God's providence, it's often associated with world events or important decisions. But most of life isn't made up of those things - is He involved in the ordinary details of our lives too?

A Canticle December 26, 2011
The Magnificat records Mary's response to all that God revealed to her about the child she would bear - a response that drew from all that she had learned about God and how he dealt with his people. Mary's song continues to teach us about the kingdom of God and the Savior she celebrated with reverence, humility, and eagerness to see the promises of God fulfilled.
Shaped by Grace December 15, 2011
The transforming work of the Gospel shapes our hearts and minds. When applied to both the mundane and profound details of our lives, it should cause us to be different from unbelievers around us. But what does this look like practically? How do these distinctions show themselves each day in our families, work, and local churches?
Alistair Begg paints the picture of a grace-shaped life in his study from Romans 12. Through Paul’s letter to the first-century church, we see practical actions and attributes that should mark the life of every Christian, no matter the circumstance.

Favoritism, Part One January 1, 2009
In a culture that is fixated on outward appearances, it is often easy for Christians to show favoritism within the church. As people who have been shown abundant grace by the Lord Himself, we should be most willing to show grace to those around us. Alistair Begg urges Christians to treat all people with respect and dignity, regardless of their education, finances, social standing, or race.

Favoritism, Part Two January 1, 2009
How do we correct an attitude of elitism and contempt for those who are socially underprivileged? Alistair Begg tells us that when we comprehend the glory and wealth from which Jesus came, we will be humbled, and our insulting behavior towards others will change. Knowing that God has chosen the poor of this world to be His heirs should eliminate any smugness within us.
