The Sacraments

Observing communion and baptism are biblical instructions that believers are obligated to obey. The breaking of bread was instituted by Christ and therefore is not optional. Observing the sacraments is a testament to what God, through Christ, has accomplished in our lives. The sacraments are a visible portrayal of redemption and a means through which we are strengthened.

Fellowship

Fellowship within the family of God resembles that of an earthly family in many ways. Family life is not always agreeable and is sometimes affronted with friction and discord. We can take comfort in knowing that God will use times of conflict to strengthen and build resolve within us. It is the love of Christ that holds us together when our spirit is broken.

The Worst Sinner of Them All

Before his conversion, the Apostle Paul was a blasphemer and a violent persecutor of Christians, yet by God’s grace, he was not only forgiven, but appointed to preach the Gospel. The awareness of his sin kept Paul humble and filled with gratitude to God. Alistair Begg assures us that the same grace that transformed Paul is available to us today.

The Apostles' Teachings

In the early church, the Apostles faithfully taught from the Scripture because understanding the doctrine of God is the only way to truly know Christ. Therefore, it is essential that we study our Bibles and accurately interpret Christian doctrine with the help of expository preaching that is faithful to the Word of God. We can only love God with our minds when we come to know Him through proper study and worship.

Counterfeit Christianity

If subsequent generations are to hold fast to the things of Christ, the people of God must be grounded in the truths of Scripture. Paul warned Timothy about false teachers arising from within the church, and Alistair Begg notes that counterfeit Christianity remains a matter of pressing urgency for the Church today. Christians must be instructed in sound doctrine in order live out our faith correctly and recognize errors in teaching.

A Summary of Christian Duty

The word “duty” gets a bad reputation, but Christian duty is an essential expression of the privilege of knowing Jesus Christ. Alistair Begg explains that through Jesus, believers can please God by continually offering all of our lives to Him as an expression of thanksgiving demonstrated by doing good in obedience to His word.

Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus

The book of Hebrews urges us to reflect on what God has said to us and what God has done for us. The writer ends on the same notes, reminding us that God has made peace with us through the Jesus and will equip us with everything that we need to do His will. In this study of the concluding verses, Alistair Begg draws our attention to the greatness of the Lord Jesus Christ and the sufficiency of all that He has accomplished for us.

A Christian Lifestyle

What is the church? The author of Hebrews teaches us that the church is not merely a building, but a family of faith that displays faith in action. Alistair Begg explains that life in this family of faith involves gratitude to God displayed by loving each other as brothers, entertaining strangers, sympathizing with prisoners, and relentlessly pursuing purity.

The Privilege of Disgrace

The Christian life is grace from beginning to end, and that grace is displayed when those who follow Christ live in a way that is distinct. In this message from Hebrews 13:5-14, Alistair Begg reminds us that it is the Christian’s privilege to be identified with the Savior, who has done everything necessary to both save and transform his people in holiness.

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.
