    A Message for Christmas 2016 from Alistair Begg

    How good do we have to be to gain God’s approval? In this brief message, Alistair Begg explains how the Christmas story is the good news of salvation, not simply good advice to “be good for goodness sake.” We are reminded that it is God alone who saves. It is through our self-surrender to the finished work of Jesus Christ, not through our self-efforts, that we are made acceptable to God.

    Video: "Then Sings My Soul" By Alistair Begg

    Mary’s song in Luke 1 describes the actions God has taken in redeeming His people: God has shown strength, scattered the proud, brought low the mighty, exalted the humble, filled the hungry, and sent the rich away empty. Alistair Begg teaches that God overturns the earthly values that we trust, not vindictively or arbitrarily, but purposefully as He establishes His kingdom that will never end. Mary’s song invites us to humbly praise the Almighty God who fulfilled His promise of salvation through the birth of Jesus.

    Video: "The Genealogy of Jesus" by Alistair Begg

    Why does Matthew begin his gospel with a long list of names? Alistair Begg expounds on three events from Matthew’s list that establish the historical context of Christ’s birth: God’s promise to Abraham that through him all nations will be blessed, God’s promise to David that his kingdom would last forever, and the exile of the Israelites. From Matthew’s list we learn that God uses people we wouldn’t choose, experiences we wouldn’t want, and events we wouldn’t plan in order to achieve His eternal plan.

    Video: "Joseph, Do Not Fear" by Alistair Begg

    When Gabriel announced the birth of Jesus to Mary, she submitted to God at great personal cost. At just the right time, God also sent an angel to prepare Joseph for his role in the birth of the Messiah. Alistair Begg explains that Joseph's response was grounded in his character and shaped by his commitment to the Word of God. This kind of submission to God requires courage in the face of shame and rejection, but our hope is found in the Lord Jesus Christ, who became man to endure shame and meet our greatest need.

    Video: "Let It Be" by Alistair Begg

    Familiarity with the Christmas story can lessen our appreciation of the incredible nature of the events surrounding the incarnation, but we must remember that they did occur and are beyond human explanation. In this sermon, Alistair Begg focuses on Luke’s account of Gabriel’s visit with Mary that foretold the Messiah’s conception and birth. The angel’s message is the cornerstone of redemption history. It calls us, like Mary, to acknowledge the mystery of God's plans and to submit to His purposes in humility and trust.
