Being a father can provide constant challenges, especially when trying to find the right balance between giving discipline and giving grace. One child may become exasperated by certain elements of correction while another may need diligent instruction. In the end, a father’s love for his child must remain unconditional in the same way our Heavenly Father’s love is unconditional toward His children. A father or mother may not even see the benefits of loving in this way until they see their child united with Christ for all of eternity.

The Last Lap

In the study of Acts 28:7-16, we see evidence of God’s grace and sovereignty in Paul’s interaction with the people of Malta. They welcomed Paul with hospitality and honor, and God worked through Paul to heal many who were sick. Later, when Paul and his companions finally arrived in Rome, they praised God and were encouraged by the Christian fellowship that greeted them. Alistair Begg uses Paul’s experiences to highlight the importance of cultivating friendships with unbelievers, prioritizing Christian fellowship, and using God-given gifts to magnify Christ.

The Bonfire on the Beach

After surviving stormy seas, shipwreck, and a poisonous snakebite, Paul enjoyed the unusual kindness of the islanders in Malta. Rather than becoming discouraged by this detour, Paul seized the opportunity to share his faith with the generous yet superstitious people on the island. Alistair Begg points out, however, that even unusually kind people can be lost and in need of a Savior.

A distinct sign of a crumbling society is that children no longer obey their parents. It is now often perceived as anti-cultural and, even “old-fashioned,” to believe that parents have authority over their children. When children are captured by the love and lordship of Christ, they will be more inclined to obey their parents in a heartfelt and sincere way. They will be markedly different from others around them, bringing testimony to the wonder of God’s amazing grace.

...and Rides upon the Storm

After two weeks adrift on the storm-tossed sea, the sailors and soldiers focused on self-preservation as the threat of shipwreck became certain. In the midst of calamity and crisis, leadership was desperately needed, and Paul, the unlikely prisoner, stepped up with faith and common sense. Alistair Begg assures us that just as God was with Paul, He is with each of us as we wrestle with the stormy seas of life, and our response can have a radical impact on the watching world.

What does it mean to love your wife? The Bible affirms that husbands are to love their wives as Christ loved the Church. As Alistair Begg explains, this is a high standard that is nothing less than a model of the cross of Christ. This love is not harsh; it is sensitive, natural, purposeful, sacrificial, and exclusive. It is a love that enables a wife to flourish in her femininity and grow in her love for Christ.

Have you ever wondered why Christian marriages continue to suffer when the Church places so much emphasis on the importance of strong marital relationships? Alistair Begg suggests that when our discussions about marriage start in the wrong place, we are bound to veer off course. Marriage begins with God and His glory, and wives who are faithful to the Biblical pattern for marriage are a living testimony to the power of the Gospel.

He Plants His Footsteps in the Sea

Paul finally set sail for Rome to face trial before Caesar, just as God had promised. When the ship was suddenly caught in a hurricane-force storm, Paul clung firmly to the promises of God and his faith was a comfort and encouragement to others on the ship. Alistair Begg reminds us that while God’s promises do not alleviate the challenges of life, He can be trusted to bring us safely to our eternal destiny.
