Making the Most of It

Making the Most of It

Joseph went from being the child of a caring father to a slave at auction. In the face of such trying circumstances, he could have become bitter and resentful. Instead, he trusted God. Alistair Begg points us to the life of Joseph to demonstrate that there is no ideal place to serve God except where He has established us. We may not know how God is at work, but we can trust that He will use life’s difficult times for His glory.

Dangers, Toils and Snares

What are the purposes of suffering and trials? Why does God allow them? Those around us might tell us that suffering is pointless, that we should ignore it or rise above it, or that karma is paying us back for a wrong we have committed. The Bible, though, gives a very different answer. Scripture clearly addresses suffering—both its presence and its purpose. (After all, no one suffered more than Christ, our Savior.) Its many examples of faithful men and women who encountered various trials demonstrate God’s hand at work throughout history and for His glory.

In this series, Alistair Begg address the difficulties and worries of life by turning our attention to God’s Word and His promises. We may be tempted to long for greener pastures, but amid life’s trials, God’s Word assures us that peace is found in Christ alone.
