God's Faithfulness in Affliction

We often praise God for His faithfulness in times of joy, but in this study of 1 Peter, we discover that God reveals His faithfulness in our suffering and disappointment as well. Alistair Begg describes the Biblical reality of suffering in the Christian life and examines what can be said with certainty about God’s purposes during times of suffering. Affliction can produce bitterness, or it can produce a deeper relationship with God if it is combined with faith and a willingness to be trained by the trial.

The Father's Discipline

It is often through our tears that we progress the most in the Christian life, as long as we are willing to be trained by God’s hand of providence. Alistair Begg affirms that God’s discipline is a primary sign that we are His children. God’s discipline in our lives is always out of love and in order that we might be further sanctified in our Christian walk.

Essentials of Christian Maturity

How can we endure through difficult times so that we may not grow weary in the faith? In this study of Hebrews 12:12-17, Alistair Begg teaches us the Biblical foundations for living a Christian life. As we pursue holiness, we must “see to” keeping strong and straight, living harmoniously with one another, helping each other grow in God’s grace, rejecting godlessness, accepting those who seek God, and ultimately, worshipping God acceptably.

Through Many Dangers

Christians are promised God’s preservation amidst all of life’s adversities, regardless of how well we perform each day. The peace that is brought about by this promise brings security and piety to the believer’s life. Alistair Begg exhorts us to continually remember this promise by turning our gaze away from ourselves and towards Christ’s perfect work.

Every Picture tells a Story

When we feel like our faith is faltering, what can we do? The writer of Hebrews provides several examples of men who displayed steadfast faith even when God’s purposes were unclear.

Portrait Gallery, Part One

What does it take to please God? Good deeds? Donations to charity? Regular church attendance? The Bible tells us in one word — faith. In this message from Hebrews 11, Alistair Begg defines faith from a biblical perspective and reminds us that genuine faith in God brings us into a relationship with Him that is vital and relevant in every part of our lives.

Abraham heard the word of God and trusted in the promises of God. By faith, he left everything that was familiar to him, and by faith he continued steadfastly even through times of apparent delay. Alistair Begg explains that as in Abraham’s life, genuine faith is marked not just by dramatic action, but by perseverance and steady consistency to the end.

What is Faith?

When we are faced with placing our eternal destiny into the hands of the Living God, it requires more than head knowledge or strong feelings. It requires a genuine faith in the Lord Jesus Christ that is defined by God in His Word. In this passage, we will learn what genuine biblical saving faith is and what it is not.

Perserverance of the Saints

When we sincerely put our trust in Christ as our Savior, we are saved, and we will always be saved. There is nothing we can do or fail to do that will change that. As we learn and trust in the promises of God’s Word, we discover that God is the One who actually holds us to the end and provides the means so that we will persevere to the end.

Keeping Near, Keeping On

When life’s mountains seem too high and the valleys seem too low, we may feel abandoned and become discouraged. Yet God’s Word promises that when we place our trust in Jesus, we will never travel life’s journey alone. We will have His Holy Spirit living within us and His Word to instruct, direct and strengthen us. The letter to the Hebrews encourages us to keep near to Christ so we can keep going.
