The death of Jesus was an act of great injustice, but the Bible tells us that it also happened according to the plan and purpose of God. In this message, Alistair Begg examines the crucifixion in light of the doctrine of providence from the perspective of God the Father, the Lord Jesus, and the human participants. Although it is a mystery that we cannot fully understand, the injustice of the crucifixion accomplished God’s plan to demonstrate the breadth of His love by redeeming sinners.
Intended For Good
A Study on God's Providential Care. Are we victims of chance, tossed about by circumstances beyond our control? Does God watch the unfolding events in our world from a distance, passive and inactive? Or can we find rest and hope in a God who is active and sovereign?
In this series, Alistair Begg introduces us to the doctrine of God’s providence. Here the Christian can find hope in the knowledge that the One who created and sustains us orders everything according to His will. Here we are challenged in the knowledge that God’s boundless sovereignty does not infringe upon our responsibility for the choices we make. Here we find comfort in the truth that God will ultimately use even wicked intentions and painful trials for His glory and the good of His people.
The awareness of God’s providence relieves us of both pride in our accomplishments and panic over uncertainty. In an increasingly unstable world, God’s people can rest securely in the providence of God, who faithfully pursues our good.
