Long-Suffering Community

The first century churches at Smyrna and Philadelphia faced persecution from without and a sense of their own weakness within. The Lord Jesus wrote tender words, encouraging them to endure hardship and promising eternal rewards to those who overcome. As we study these two letters, Alistair Begg shows how God works through our weaknesses and trials, giving us the strength to be faithful and the confidence of knowing we are secure in His Kingdom for eternity.

Loyal Community

In every local church, some members are loyal to Christ and growing in grace while others mix their faith with non-biblical teachings. The first century churches at Pergamum and Thyatira were no exception, and when Jesus wrote to these believers in Revelation 2, His words “I know you” contained both praise and warning. In this message, Alistair Begg explains how we can apply these principles in our lives today, avoiding moral compromise and affirming the authority of God’s Word.

Living Community

One church appeared successful, but many members were morally lax. Another had compromised its values and was being absorbed by the surrounding culture. The churches in first century Sardis and Laodicea were in difficulty, and Jesus’ letters in Revelation 3 called them back to being the living communities He intended. As Alistair Begg explores these passages, we see that Christ extends grace to troubled churches, calling believers to repent and look to Him for hope and strength.

Loving Community

The church at Ephesus was surely happy to receive a letter from Jesus because He praised them for their commitment to truth and the work of the Gospel. The Lord didn’t stop there, however, but went on to confront a serious problem: they had lost their first love. Alistair Begg challenges us to consider our own lives and churches in light of Jesus’ words, then to repent and live for Him now and always.

Teach Your Children Well, Part Two

It is a daunting challenge to raise children with Christian values in a world that is increasingly antagonistic toward biblical truth and conviction. Gleaning wisdom from Proverbs 22 and Ephesians 6, Alistair Begg instructs parents – particularly fathers – in in the biblical principles of training children without exasperating them. Consistent, tender parenting requires constant prayer, complete dependence on God’s grace, and a steadfast focus on eternity.
