On A Certain Day

On A Certain Day

When Paul preached at length to the Roman synagogue leaders as recorded in Acts 23:11, we see the fulfillment of God’s promise that Paul would testify about Christ in Rome. Paul taught from the Old Testament and used verifiable historical data to fuse the Biblical Christ with the historical Jesus in the minds of his listeners. He boldly urged his listeners to turn to Christ in faith. Alistair Begg notes that there is the same sense of urgency on every occasion that the Gospel is presented because no one can presume a second opportunity to hear and respond.

For the Sake of the Gospel, Volume 1

Are you passionate about sharing the Gospel? How willing are you to sacrifice and take risks so that unbelievers may become followers of Jesus, and believers may become better equipped to share the Good News of salvation?

In Volume 1 of this series of messages from Alistair Begg, we follow the Apostle Paul from Corinth to Caesarea on his final missionary trek. For the sake of the Gospel, Paul endured trials of every kind, boldly proclaiming the Good News and glorifying God even to those who doggedly persecuted him. Throughout his journey, we see evidence of God’s grace, providential protection, and provision. God’s guidance and care underpinned Paul’s confidence and enabled him to live out the faith he proclaimed.

It’s easy to believe God’s promises in the days of calm, but trusting Him in the midst of life’s storms is difficult, and our response to trials may either advance or impede the spread of the Gospel.

For the Sake of the Gospel, Volume 2

Are you passionate about sharing the Gospel? How willing are you to sacrifice and take risks so that unbelievers may become followers of Jesus, and believers may become better equipped to share the Good News of salvation?

In Volume 2 of For the Sake of the Gospel, it quickly becomes evident that nothing would silence the Apostle Paul from “preaching the kingdom of God and teaching about the Lord Jesus Christ”— not a trial before royalty, a hurricane-force storm at sea, a shipwreck, a poisonous snake bite, chains, or prolonged wrongful imprisonment. Paul was zealous to make all his days and all his deeds count for the Gospel. Alistair Begg uses Paul’s dramatic journey from Caesarea to Rome to illustrate God’s faithfulness and to encourage us to see our circumstances as opportunities to proclaim the Good News.
