Does the certainty of God's judgment have any significance for Christians? Our position is Christ is certain. But the Bible is clear that the everyday actions of our lives are significant, and we will be accountable for how we have built on the foundation of our faith. Will we enter heaven like a triumphant athlete or like a shipwrecked sailor?

type Sermon
id 2944

In the 15th chapter of his gospel account, Mark describes the crucifixion. The particular details he provides, far from being random facts and observations, lead instead to a deeper understanding of what Christ accomplished on the cross - bearing sin and enduring God's judgment to redeem His own.

Jesus' prayer that the cup of God's wrath would be removed from him was a real request prompted by the horror of what was to come. But we can't come to grips with this prayer - or with Jesus' submission to the will of the Father - if we only think of it as his reaction to physical suffering. The agony that he faced was the reality that he would soon identify with sinners by drinking the cup of God's wrath against sin.

When the apostle Paul presented God's truth to the people of Athens, he did not hold back from topics that may be uncomfortable - for example, the coming Day of God's Judgement. The fact that our Creator and Father is also the righteous Judge gives meaning to our moral choices and to suffering, and challenges us to prepare to meet the Day in our own hearts and lives.

We live in a culture that has grown accustomed to toying with sin and trivializing any notion of hell. Jesus took sin and its consequences very seriously though and issued stern warnings to his followers about how they should fight sin in their lives.

id 13201

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.

God is perfectly loving; and He demonstrates this in His mercy. It is also true that God is perfectly just; and He demonstrates this in the fact that He cannot let sin go unpunished. These truths may seem completely opposite and incompatible, yet they are not. In this study Alistair Begg teaches us how God demonstrates both His justice and love in the cross of Jesus Christ.

scripture Amos

id 13001

Amos was not a learned man; he was a shepherd from a small town. He was not an innovator; he simply reminded people of facts they already knew. The only remarkable thing about Amos was how unremarkable he was. Yet God used Amos to remind His people that religious profession and religious procession are irrelevant and repulsive to Him unless they are accompanied by evidence of His grace. As 21st century Christians, we need to realize that God is saying the same thing to us. The church today is consumed with tales of experience yet it often denies the truths ...
