Video: "Remember!" By Alistair Begg

    The author of Ecclesiastes examined the dead-end streets that men and women travel, exposing the futility of a world without God, before concluding with a most important plea: “Remember your Creator.” Alistair Begg helps us understand this plea to abandon self-sufficiency in light of the grim picture of our certain physical decline. When we find our purposeful delight in fearing God, this reverential awe banishes all other fears and draws us to our Father with certainty that Christ has provided a way for us to know Him and to rest confidently in His salvation.

    Hymn: "In the Garden" by Charles Austin Miles

    In the Garden
    By: Charles Austin Miles

    I come to the garden alone,
    While the dew is still on the roses;
    And the voice I hear falling on my ear,
    The Son of God discloses.

    Download (Free) - "One" - A Call to Unity in Christ

    It’s human nature to draw together with others like us—seeking, for example, the company of those who share a similar background or support a common cause. The unity among God’s people is significantly different from these natural human relationships. Here, the young and old, the rich and poor, those from all races and nationalities across time join together to form His Church.

    Video: "Spiritual Warfare, Part One" by Alistair Begg

    Jesus secured salvation for all believers when He defeated Satan at the cross. Until Christ returns, however, spiritual warfare rages on in this world and should not be easily dismissed. In His mercy, God has provided the armor by which we can withstand such fierce opposition. In this overview of God’s protective provision, Alistair Begg exhorts us to resist Satan’s accusations, look outside ourselves to Christ, and recall the truth that in Christ, we already have the victory.  [Part Two]

    Video: "Spiritual Warfare, Part Two" by Alistair Begg

    Every believer dwells in the spiritual realm and will encounter battle with our adversary, the devil, until Christ’s return. Alistair Begg urges us to remain alert to Satan’s subtle, fiery darts, and outlines a practical strategy to employ in the midst of the struggle. As students of God’s Word, we can persevere—conscious of our weakness, but strong in the Lord; resolute because of His goodness; and with every confidence in our unity with the One who reigns victorious.

    What Does a Gospel-Centered Church Look Like? 

    Church--some may hear the word and think, "building with a steeple." Others may imagine an obligation or destination, as in, "Let's go to church." The purpose of the church, though, is much more profound, and its mission from Scripture is clear: to make disciples of Christ.

    Hymn: "What Grace is Mine" by Kristyn Getty

    What Grace is Mine
    Words By: Kristyn Getty

    What grace is mine that He who dwells in endless light
    Called through the night to find my distant soul
    And from his scars poured mercy that would plead for me
    That I might live and in his name be known

    Video: "Slaves and Masters, Part Two" by Alistair Begg

    Man’s chief end is “to glorify God and to enjoy Him forever.” By nature, we don’t do that, but the Gospel creates within our hearts a longing to do the good works that God has prepared for us. Within the workplace, this change is evidenced by transformed relationships and transformed work. Alistair Begg reminds us that the Christian standard for employees requires sincere, wholehearted obedience. When we realize that all of our work is done for Christ, it reorients our perspective from our own performance to the glory of God.

    Video: "Slaves and Masters, Part Three" by Alistair Begg

    The Gospel breaks down barriers that separate individuals in the world. When Paul instructed redeemed masters, for example, he reminded them that as brothers in Christ, masters and slaves stood equal before God. Alistair Begg teaches that the same holds true for Christian employers and employees today. Regardless of job status, they ultimately serve and answer to an impartial God. Rather than bully those under their supervision, Christian employers should extend grace to their employees without qualification, transforming threats into encouragement.

    Featured Resource: "The Life of the Church" by Joe Thorn

    What does a Gospel-centered church look like? Pastor and author Joe Thorn explores three environments of a church where the mission is to make disciples of Christ—The Table, around which church members engage in fellowship, The Pulpit, which faithfully proclaims the Word of God, and The Square, or the surrounding community, in which church members proactively share the Gospel.

    Hymn: "I Heard the Voice of Jesus Say" by Horatius Bonar

    I heard the voice of Jesus say,
    “Come unto Me and rest;
    Lay down, thou weary one, lay down
    Thy head upon My breast.”
    I came to Jesus as I was,
    Weary, and worn, and sad;
    I found in Him a resting-place,
    And He has made me glad.

    The Bible's Priorities for Godly Mothers

    How Can You Come to Know Christ More? 

    Many of us can recite the names of biblical figures and heroes of the faith who have impacted our lives. Often, we recall great military or historical figures that have shaped our world. But even the very greatest mind or saint is but a grain of sand compared to the Mount Everest that is the person of Jesus Christ. How many of us, though, can say that we set aside regular time to reverently ponder Jesus?

    Jesus Christ: Great High Priest (5 of 7)

    Of the titles given to Jesus, “priest” is the only one that has virtually an entire book of the New Testament devoted to explaining it—the letter to the Hebrews. The author of Hebrews is anonymous, but his message is clear: in the face of life’s difficulties, he encourages his readers, including us, to “consider Jesus,”1 to be “looking to Jesus,”2 and especially to see him as our great high priest.

    Video: "Slaves and Masters, Part One" by Alistair Begg

    When Paul addressed slaves and masters in his letter to the Ephesians, he was not driven by social or political reform but by the Gospel: Practically, Paul was in no position to bring about the abolition of slavery; theologically, he could not detract from the priority of the message of Jesus Christ. Alistair Begg reminds us that the Church’s calling is not to change the culture, but to share the only thing that can change the human heart–the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

    Jesus Christ: Suffering Servant (4 of 7)

    The second half of the prophecy of Isaiah1 is set against the dark backcloth of God’s judgment on his people and their exile in Babylon. Slowly, out of the shadow lands, a figure appears. He is described by God as “my servant,” and his presence dominates a series of poetic passages known collectively as the “Servant Songs.”
