    "Be diligent to present yourself approved to God as a workman who does not need to be ashamed, accurately handling the word of truth." - 2 Timothy 2:15 (ESV)

Simply agreeing with this truth is not enough, though–in order to hear God speak, we must read His Word. In this selection of messages, Alistair Begg encourages us to read the Scriptures prayerfully every day and apply what we learn, allowing the Word to do its work in our hearts.

    In the early church, the Apostles faithfully taught from the Scripture because understanding the doctrine of God is the only way to truly know Christ. Therefore, it is essential that we study our Bibles and accurately interpret Christian doctrine with the help of expository preaching that is faithful to the Word of God. We can only love God with our minds when we come to know Him through proper study and worship.
