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.
