Because of the cross, Christians are declared “righteous.” As a result, we’re called to lead holy lives. On Truth For Life, Alistair Begg begins a new series called For Goodness Sake, explaining how God’s redemptive power compels us to be radically different from our culture.
For Goodness SakeWhat does it mean to be good? If the Bible teaches us that our good works aren’t enough to save us, why do Christians spend so much time trying to be good? In his letter to Titus, the Apostle Paul gives us the answer: having been transformed by God’s grace through the Gospel, we are now called to live lives that are defined by goodness in all that we do. In this series, Alistair Begg unpacks what it means to live a good life in the public sphere, in our daily lives, and in our churches. Paul’s letter provides a call to Christian citizenship, reminding us what what we once were, what we ought to be, and what we are becoming. The behavior of the Christian does nothing to save, but it is a response of the saving work of Jesus Christ on the cross.
