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.

Gideon: Seeing God's Strength

The story of Gideon demonstrates how God deals with His children. Because the people of Israel became self-reliant and failed to remember God’s grace towards them, they fell under the oppression of foreigners. Like Israel, God often brings us times of hardship so that we are reminded of our dependence on His strength and mercy. In the end, we are made stronger by better understanding our own weakness.

Gideon: God's Choice

God’s selection of Gideon was not the most obvious choice, but it was the choice that would bring God the most glory. We can take great comfort in knowing that God uses weak sinners to accomplish great things, just as He did with Gideon. By using the least of men to accomplish the most for men, God’s intervention reminds us time and again that there is no place for self-boasting. God is on the throne and does all things according to His will and for His pleasure.

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.
