    Sermons on Spiritual Warfare from Alistair Begg

    There are two common mistakes people make when thinking about the devil– we become preoccupied with his existence or ignore it altogether. In this series on spiritual warfare, Alistair Begg helps listeners understand the often overlooked reality that there is a war happening all around us every day. As Christians and soldiers in God’s army, The Bible calls us to understand who our enemy is, where this battle is taking place, and how to defend ourselves before we can be successful in this ongoing, unseen, and unavoidable war. Though the fate of our enemy has been decided, the battle rages on, and each of us must make use of the armor and weapons that God has given us to defend ourselves from Satan’s attacks.

    Video: "Over, Through and In All" by Alistair Begg

    God’s purpose for His creation has one chief aim: to bring Him glory. Within the context of his letter to the church at Ephesus, the Apostle Paul specifically addressed those called to be God’s children. In the framework of God’s supreme care, Christ provides access to the Father, and the Spirit abides with the believer. Alistair Begg helps us to understand the transcendent providence, power, and presence of our Almighty God.

    Video: "One God and Father of All" by Alistair Begg

    Christian unity is not based on shared experiences, but on the profound truth that God has redeemed a people for His own. Alistair Begg explains that only those who have been redeemed by Christ and belong to God as adopted sons and daughters know God as "Father." Through the Lord Jesus, our infinite God has made himself known to save sinful men and women, and it is the Christian's greatest privilege to say, "I am a child of God."

    Video: "One Baptism" By Alistair Begg

    Although specific baptism practices differ among churches, Paul cited “one baptism” in Ephesians 4 as part of the foundation of Christian unity. Cross referencing this passage with Romans 6, Alistair Begg focuses on the spiritual nature of baptism that applies for all believers at conversion. Our union with Christ in His death and resurrection gives us a new identity—an identity based on Christ’s finished work, not on our feelings. A firm grasp of these truths will enable us to maintain the unity of the Spirit with all who are in Him.

    Alistair Begg Discusses the Seasons of Life

    Dear Friend,

    One of the benefits of living in Cleveland is being able to enjoy the seasons. Some days I feel envious of those who are in short sleeves while I’m adding another layer. Today the ground is blanketed in snow. There is hardly a hint of green and even the birds seem to be singing in a minor key. But beneath the surface there is life, unseen but real and growing. In a matter of a few weeks, it will be apparent as we enjoy the beauty of spring.
