Temptation

Temptation

Whether it's the enticement to eat one more piece of cake or allow our thoughts to veer where they should not go, we all face temptations of various kinds. So, how do we win the battle against our sinful nature? Alistair Begg describes the biblical prescription today on Truth For Life!

Lessons For Life, Volume 1

Young men and women entering college or taking their first steps out into the world will quickly find their faith put to the test. Contemporary influences encourage us to “live for the moment” and to “seize the day” without regard for eternal consequences. The pressure imposed by society to thrive in a competitive world can breed broken friendships, disappointments, and lure young adults away from their devotion to Christ. Teaching from selected Scripture including Psalms, Proverbs, Timothy and James, Alistair Begg speaks to college student audiences about holding firm to Christian convictions. Lessons For Life offers practical, essential teaching on how to resist the destructive traps of laziness, jealousy, and temptation. Using biblical and often humorous anecdotes, this series helps the young and the young at heart steer through the pitfalls of sinful choices and attitudes.

Lessons For Life, Volume 3

In this series of messages, Alistair Begg takes a closer look at God’s providential care and the Christian’s appropriate response. We are reminded that God is sovereign over our entire existence and that our lives matter to Him. He uses even our mistakes and disappointments in the process of conforming us to the image of His Son. While the Lord does not reveal His purposes to us in advance, our security is in knowing that we are in the hands of a loving, compassionate God. As a result, the Christian’s perspective on current issues will be drastically different from the contemporary views of society, but we are called to wholehearted devotion and complete submission to God’s will.
