Friendship Matters

The Apostle Paul faced his approaching death with confidence in God, but also with real vulnerability. In this message from the concluding verses of 2 Timothy, Alistair Begg directs our attention to the important roles that Luke, Mark, and Tychicus played in the life and ministry of Paul. By their loyalty and usefulness, these men illustrate the practical value of faithful ministry to Christ and the providence of God in ordering even missteps and failures for His glory.


The Crown of Righteousness

What future do we expect after death? Nearing the end of his life and the end of his final epistle, the Apostle Paul wrote with certainty about the future he expected. Alistair Begg explores the principles in 2 Timothy 4:8 in this message, explaining how Paul’s faith in Jesus as righteous Judge and Savior led to his hope of an eternal reward: a crown of righteousness that is secured for all who long for Christ’s return.

Death and Dying

Paul wrote his second letter to Timothy with urgency because he understood that his death was near, and His foremost concern remained the preaching of the Gospel. Facing the reality of death, Paul recognized that his life had not been wasted, but was being poured out for God. This calm and direct approach to death contrasts greatly with our contemporary culture. In this message Alistair Begg encourages us to consider that judgment follows death and to trust in Christ’s offer of salvation as we face our own mortality.

A Consecrated Life

When we consider what it might look like to live a life that is committed to the cause of the Gospel, the Apostle Paul is an excellent example. As Alistair Begg explains, what set Paul apart was not that he didn’t value the ordinary experiences of life, but that he viewed them all in relationship to the purposes and care of God. When we live with the Gospel in view, we learn that the greatest value is in a life lived well for God’s glory.

Deep-Seated Corruption (Westmont)

Judas Iscariot’s attitude and choices determined his destiny, yet God was able to use his sin – even his betrayal of Jesus – to achieve His purposes. In this study of Mark 14:10, we learn that God fulfills His sovereign plan without interfering with the individual’s freedom of choice. Alistair Begg reminds us that the treachery of Judas is a warning to the Church against the “profession of Christ without the possession of Christ.”

Jesus Was Buried

Joseph of Arimathea was wealthy, well-respected, and religious. He was also a secret disciple of Jesus until the events of the crucifixion brought him into the open with a courageous request to care for the body of Jesus. The cross of Christ confronts us just as it confronted Joseph. Alistair Begg challenges us to consider whether we are living as secret disciples and to respond to the good news of the Gospel in repentance and faith.

Gospel Conversations, Part 2

Our culture has become increasingly preoccupied with living forever. But the Bible tells us that we have a created beginning and an appointed death. In part two of the message, “Gospel Conversations”, Alistair unpacks how Christians should remember this themselves, and then how to share the reality of these two truths with friends and co-workers.
