    Do Not Exasperate Your Children

    As Christian parents, we don't set out to intentionally create friction with our children. Yet, in the heat of the moment, words can inflict all kinds of damage. The Apostle Paul warns of this in the book of Ephesians, but also gives parents, and fathers in particular, God-inspired counsel on how to care for, teach, discipline, and love their children.

    Download Audio Series (Free) - Parental Priorities - God's Design for the Family

    Wouldn’t it be great if children came with an instruction guide? Alistair Begg teaches us that, in fact, they do! The Bible is the ultimate source for instruction and contains everything we need to know about raising children. Navigating the challenges of parenting is particularly difficult in today’s culture, which is confused about the role of mothers and fathers and the unique benefits they each bring to the family unit. Wise parenting begins with the realization that we are all born in sin; when this doctrine is properly understood, it will have practical implications on how we discipline and train our children. Mothers should embrace their irreplaceable role, and fathers are to lead their families under the framework of Biblical truth. Believing parents can be encouraged by God’s promise: “Train them up in the way they should go, and when they are old they will not depart from it.”

    Sermons on Sickness and Suffering

    "For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worth comparing with the glory that is to be revealed to us." -Romans 8:18

    Some say that if you become a Christian, all your worries and problems will go away. But the Bible tells us that not only will our troubles not go away but we will be persecuted for being a Christian. In these sermons Alistair Begg addresses the topic of suffering and sickness and we learn how to trust God in the difficult times in our lives.

    Video: "Gifts of the Ascended Lord" by Alistair Begg

    In Ephesians 4, Paul expressed the diversity of the body of Christ listing different gifts that God has given to His followers. In this message, Alistair Begg defines the gifts of apostles, prophets, and evangelists explaining the role of these individuals in laying the foundation of the Church. Each of the gifts Paul mentioned in these verses is involved with teaching the Word of God, and it is vital to understand that neither individuals nor churches can expect to grow in spiritual maturity apart from regularly hearing the expositional preaching and teaching of God's Word.
