Introducing Ephesians

In writing to the Ephesians, Paul communicated core gospel truths that are of vital importance to believers: that our actions are founded on what God has done for us; that our home is both in this world and in the heavenly realm; that we are set apart for God by Christ's righteousness; and that God's grace brings us peace that transcends all barriers. In this message, Alistair Begg provides an overview of Ephesians and encourages us to let its essential truths impact our lives so that we "become what we are" in Christ.

A Verse for the Year

Where should a Christian turn for the strength to participate in advancing God’s Kingdom today? Alistair Begg explores a familiar verse from the prophet Zechariah to show that only God’s Spirit can empower us to fulfill His purposes. As believers turn toward God and away from earthly concerns, we must be willing to be countercultural for the sake of His kingdom.

I Take You

There is no arena where the Christian worldview so drastically contrasts secular society than that of marriage. Although there is confusion in our culture regarding marriage, Scripture expresses the solemnity by which couples should enter into this covenant. As we turn to the Bible to discover God’s purpose and plan for marriage, Alistair Begg reminds us that this ordinance should matter to all people because it pertains to the very nature of our humanity.

Loved By God

Paul wrote to encourage the church in Thessalonica with the conviction that God works powerfully through His Word and His Church to further the Gospel. Alistair Begg reminds us that genuine conversion always results in radical change. When Christians display transformed lives and proclaim the Word that we have received wherever God has placed us, the Gospel advances to the glory of God.

Alive In Christ, Volume 2

The challenge for today’s churches to remain rooted in the truth of the Gospel is not new. In fact, the church in Colossae during the days of the Apostle Paul was influenced by many worldly falsehoods, including superstition, mythology and even simple error in doctrinal translation. In his letter to the Colossians, Paul imposes two key messages which are as applicable today as they were then. First, he re-confirms that all things were created and hold together through Jesus Christ and that we must walk with Him and hold steadfast to our faith in His saving power. Paul then provides ...

Membership Matters

What does the New Testament have to say about church membership? The metaphors that the Bible uses to describe the Church imply close relationships and structural order, and the Bible is clear that every believer should be committed to a local church. In this sermon Alistair Begg teaches us that our pattern of involvement in a local church should come directly from Scripture. To be meaningfully engaged in a church body requires each of us to be converted, baptized, added, and involved.

Our God Reigns, Part Two

Facing an edict forbidding prayer to anyone but the king, Daniel continued his established pattern of private prayer to Almighty God. Alistair Begg explains that Daniel’s steady faithfulness, unjust suffering, and ultimate deliverance must point us forward to the greater conflict at hand. Despite the best efforts of the evil one to destroy the kingdom of God, our faithful Savior is victorious. We can look to Him in times of crisis knowing that He lives, reigns, and is mighty to save.

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.
