Approved By God

What is our legacy? What do we leave behind? Alistair Begg directs a college student audience to Paul’s final instruction to Timothy: “Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved.” Each day our actions affect those around us in ways that are either helpful or harmful, encouraging or unreliable. Such conscious choices paint a canvas of the picture we ultimately leave behind. In this message, men and women are encouraged to choose their friends wisely and not to underestimate a life lived to the glory of God.

A Call to the Potential Drifter

Daily commitment and devotion are essential to our step-by-step journey toward heaven. The Apostle Paul compares our daily lives to conditioning for a marathon. Such preparation entails strain and difficulty. When we are not prepared for sacrifice, we will never know the joy of the prize. In this message on 1 Corinthians 9, Alistair Begg instructs us to not run aimlessly, but instead to run for the goal of eternal life with Christ.

Make the Most of Every Opportunity

Contemporary influences encourage us to “live for the moment” without regard for eternal consequences. This kind of thinking is merely an illusion. The psalmist teaches us to “number our days aright” and to be mindful of using our time to gain a heart of wisdom. Speaking to a college student audience, Alistair Begg cautions against squandering opportunities and instead, remaining attentive to the ultimate relationship that exists between our mortality and sin.

Temptation is the enticement to sin and is rooted in our own evil desire. Outside forces do not compel us to engage in sinful or evil behavior, but the desire within our own hearts draws us into a disobedient realm. While the devil serves as a source of temptation, the decision to indulge in our desires is internally conceived. Alistair Begg explains that acting on temptation is an “inside job” and warns us to be vigilant against its enticement.
