To maintain good physical health and to stay in shape, most of us understand it requires working out and sweating a little. But the same determined effort and discipline applies to our spiritual lives, as well. Alistair Begg talks about the benefits of understanding the Bible today on Truth For Life!
Why Bother with the Bible?Why bother with the Bible? Some are asking because they think it’s nothing more than an archaic book about life in another time, something that has no relevance in the twenty-first century. That’s why it plays even less of a role in worship services today. "Why would anyone devote so much time to teaching the Bible, Alistair. Let’s just worship!" Sadly, I’ve heard comments like that more than once in my journeys. Yet the truth is that studying the Bible is worship. It’s central to the worship service and gives voice to our praise. Also it’s the only place we can learn about Jesus Christ, who is the object of our worship and the sole means of salvation. Once we come to know this salvation, it is the Bible that instructs us how to live in a way that proves we belong to Him. In a day when so many claim to converse with God, the Bible provides the safest and only sure way to hear God’s voice. He uses it to heal and cleanse our emotions and our affections, to restore broken lives, and to produce spiritual health and vitality. Ultimately, it is the plumb line against which we measure all claims to truth. Must we bother with the Bible? In this new series we’ll discover that, actually, we cannot live without it.
When we’re down or discouraged, there’s nothing like an encouraging note from a friend to pick us up. On Truth For Life, Alistair Begg describes a reassuring letter from Jesus written to a weary and distressed church.
There’s no expiration date on the timeless truth of Scripture. On Truth For Life, Alistair Begg will describe a first-century letter that addresses several 21st century issues. What can we learn from this personal note from Jesus?
If Jesus wrote a letter to your church, what do you think He’d say? What traits would He praise? What would He criticize? On Truth For Life with Alistair Begg, you’ll hear His personal comments to a first-century church not unlike many in our day.
The good news of Jesus Christ isn’t something we embrace one time at conversion, and then move on. The Gospel is a life-changing truth that should be rediscovered and applied every single day. Hear more about the transforming power of the Gospel on Truth For Life with Alistair Begg!
