Chosen in Him

Throughout the Bible, God’s initiating role is displayed. Teaching from the first chapter of Ephesians, Alistair Begg explores basic principles of what it means to come to faith in Christ and the role of election in that process. When we recognize that we are who we are because God set His affection on us before the dawn of time, our hearts bow down in wonder at His mercy and grace.


Ephesians 1:3-6

Nunc Dimittis

Simeon was a faithful man who trusted that God would be faithful to all of his promises. When Mary and Joseph brought Jesus to the temple, Simeon recognized and embraced him, not only as the source of his own peace, but as the Messiah who would be the glory of Israel and the light of the world. In this message from Luke 2:29-32, Alistair Begg encourages each of us to embrace the Lord Jesus as Simeon did, finding in him the fulfillment of all that God has promised.

The Judgment

Does the certainty of God's judgment have any significance for Christians? Our position is Christ is certain. But the Bible is clear that the everyday actions of our lives are significant, and we will be accountable for how we have built on the foundation of our faith. Will we enter heaven like a triumphant athlete or like a shipwrecked sailor?


The Keeping Power of God

The Bible tells us that the Lord "keeps" those who are His. What then are we to think if an individual has professed to be a Christian, but later falls into grievous sin? In this survey of scriptures on the perseverance of the believer, we see that God's Word does not sidestep difficult questions, but addresses them very practically. It is God Who keeps – our part is to believe and to use the means of perseverance He has provided.

He Will Judge the World

When the apostle Paul presented God's truth to the people of Athens, he did not hold back from topics that may be uncomfortable - for example, the coming Day of God's Judgment. The fact that our Creator and Father is also the righteous Judge gives meaning to our moral choices and to suffering, and challenges us to prepare to meet the Day in our own hearts and lives.


Acts 17:31

Let Us Love One Another

How can we know that we have eternal life? What does it look like when we truly love God? In this study from 1 John 4, Alistair Begg shows us that our belief in God, our obedience to His Word, and our love for one another make our invisible God visible and provides us with assurance that we truly belong to Him.

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.

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.

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.

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.
