No God Like Yahweh

The story of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego is familiar, but behind it lies the age-old conflict between men in rebellion against God and those who submit to His rule. Alistair Begg explains that the three men responded in faith because they were convinced that God had spoken, that He meant what He said, and that they could commit themselves to His care. God is able to deliver His people, and we must not compromise even if the cost is our lives.

The Postscript

The Apostle Paul concluded his final letter with messages to and about his colleagues and friends. Within these personal remarks, Alistair Begg identifies three principles we can apply today: the ordinary experiences of our lives are vehicles for God’s Providence; believers need gospel partnerships to grow in their faith and to function as a local congregation; and when in God’s time we are separated from our brethren, we do so graciously and with grace.


The Lion's Mouth

Paul had been been deserted by his friends, but he took comfort in the presence of Christ, knowing that it would allow the message of the Gospel to be proclaimed. Alistair Begg provides four verbs to describe Paul's situation in prison: opposed, deserted, strengthened, and rescued. This example reminds us that the comfort we experience from the presence of the Lord with us is directly related to His purposes for us.


Mr. Temporary?

In the conclusion of Paul's second letter to Timothy, we learn that Paul had been deserted by his once-committed friend, Demas. Demas’s actions were motivated by a deeper problem: he had come to love this world and had cast aside his love for Jesus. Like Demas, all Christians have the potential to fall away from our commitment to Christ. Alistair Begg presents an example to avoid as he urges us to turn away from sin and persevere in obedience to God, our Savior.

Lessons For Life, Volume 3

In this series of messages, Alistair Begg takes a closer look at God’s providential care and the Christian’s appropriate response. We are reminded that God is sovereign over our entire existence and that our lives matter to Him. He uses even our mistakes and disappointments in the process of conforming us to the image of His Son.

While the Lord does not reveal His purposes to us in advance, our security is in knowing that we are in the hands of a loving, compassionate God. As a result, the Christian’s perspective on current issues will be drastically different from ...

Your Enemy the Devil

Peter warns Christians of the reality of our enemy, the devil, but he also makes us aware of how we are to respond to this threat. Alistair Begg emphasizes Peter’s warning, prompting us to actively resist the ways of the evil one. By being self-controlled and alert, we will understand the reality of spiritual warfare and be able to resist Satan’s schemes.

Series: Standing Firm in Shaky Times, Volume 3


Lessons For Life, Volume 2

Young men and women entering college or taking their first steps out into the world will quickly find their faith put to the test. Contemporary influences encourage us to “live for the moment” and to “seize the day” without regard for eternal consequences. The pressure imposed by society to thrive in a competitive world can breed broken friendships, disappointments, and lure young adults away from their devotion to Christ.

Teaching from selected Scripture including Psalms, Proverbs, Timothy and James, Alistair Begg speaks to college student audiences about holding firm to Christian convictions. Lessons For Life offers practical, essential teaching ...

The Gospel According to Mark, Volume 1

Mark’s Gospel, the first to be written, emphasizes the certainty that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and the fulfillment of God’s purpose. With nearly a third of the narrative dedicated to the passion and the resurrection of Jesus, the Gospel of Mark aims to persuade all who read to believe in Jesus.

Attributed to John Mark, a contemporary of the disciple Peter, the Gospel is identified as Peter’s first-hand account of life with Jesus. Not a creator, but a conscientious compiler of the information, Mark provides vivid descriptions of the relationship between Jesus and His disciples, ...
