    Video: "God of the Exiles" by Alistair Begg

    Although they were captives in Babylon, Daniel and his friends submitted to their captors through changes in location, education, and even their names. When required to surrender the dietary practices that marked them as God’s own people, however, they resisted. As Alistair Begg leads us through Daniel 1, we see that it provides not so much a strategy to cope with trying times, but comfort and encouragement to be faithful. The focus of the story is not Daniel, but the God that he worshipped.

    Do You Listen to the Word of God?

    The Apostle Paul admonished the Thessalonian believers to test what they heard against what they knew to be true about the Lord. Today, God’s Word is often distorted to support beliefs that contradict the essential truths of the Christian faith. In this context, Christians have a responsibility to listen very carefully whenever the Word of God is proclaimed. In this sermon, Alistair Begg provides five helpful guidelines to put to use whenever the Word of God is proclaimed so that we can take seriously the responsibility to test everything.

    Video: "The Lion's Mouth" by Alistair Begg

    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.

    Read Alistair Begg's July 2015 Letter

     

    Dear Friend,

    Here at Parkside, we’re nearing the end of a series of studies in 2 Timothy. In the closing verses, Paul makes a heartfelt appeal for Timothy to come and visit him in person, and to come soon. Imprisoned in Rome, anticipating the end of his earthly life, and deserted by Demas, it’s not difficult to imagine Paul’s loneliness and his longing to see a cherished and trusted friend face to face.
