The Heart Of The Matter

The Heart Of The Matter

Studying the Bible regularly is of paramount importance, but biblical knowledge that is not combined with faith is fruitless. What will it matter if we are intelligent and passionate about the Bible but do not know Christ? Eternal life is not granted by knowledge but by coming to Jesus. Have you come to know the Christ in the Bible? Have you surrendered your life to His authority and trusted in Him alone for your acceptance with God? Reflecting on the significance of a relationship with Christ, Alistair provides a timely reminder of the importance of teaching, knowing, and loving Christ, our Savior.

The Kingdom of God, Volume 1

Look out the window of an airplane from 35,000 feet and you’ll see patterns and dimensions in the landscape unobservable from ground level. Look at the 66 books of the Bible through a similar wide-angle lens and you’ll discover far more than a collection of disjointed writings. The Bible is one book, inspired by one author (God), with one supreme subject, Jesus Christ.

In a sweeping study from Genesis to Revelation, Alistair Begg shows us how the storyline of the Bible reveals God’s master plan to establish His eternal kingdom.

Beginning in the Garden of Eden, we see a model of what God intended His kingdom to be – a place where His people live under His rule and blessing. But Adam and Eve reject God’s kingship bringing death, rebellion and sin into the world. By nature mankind follows their rebellious path, while longing for a perfect king to save them.

The Bible tells us that by God’s grace, His plan to reconcile His people to Himself existed before the world began. Both the Old and New Testaments point unwaveringly to the One who will act as a mediator and Savior: the Lord Jesus Christ. God’s intention from the very beginning was for His Kingdom to be fully and finally fulfilled in Christ. While we have been waiting over 2,000 years for Jesus’ return, the book of Revelation assures us that the wait will not continue forever. The world is progressing towards God’s intentional conclusion where all of God’s people will live in God’s place under God’s rule and blessing.
