Video: "Shepherd King" by Alistair Begg

    Into the humiliation of a people suffering the consequences of their sin, the Prophet Micah spoke a message of hope. Alistair Begg explains that God's promise would be fulfilled through a King born in insignificant circumstances, but destined for an everlasting reign—Christ, the Lord. He is our eternal King, and He, Himself, is the peace with God that our sin requires. His coming is met with hostility and indifference from some, but those who bow before Him in humble faith find salvation.

    Video: "Submitting to One Another" by Alistair Begg

    Everyone is naturally inclined to proud self-assertion, but humility and mutual submission should be evident in the lives of believers. Alistair Begg urges us to consider that real unity is a response of reverence for Jesus, who gave Himself for us. As we are increasingly under the control of God's Word and the Lordship of God's Son, the Holy Spirit will produce genuine unity among the people of God.

    Video: "Giving Thanks" By: Alistair Begg

    Many view gratitude as an admirable and important quality. The Apostle Paul, however, had much more to say regarding thankfulness, and in his letter to the church in Ephesus, he directed believers to give thanks “always and for everything.” Alistair Begg helps us to understand that for the Christian, thankfulness is rooted in who God is and what He has done. As we trust in God’s fatherly, providential care, we can respond with thanksgiving through all circumstances and for all things.

    Video: "Filled With the Spirit, Part One" by Alistair Begg

    Christians should be characterized by wise living because we have been made completely new in Christ. The world we live in, however, is marked by rebellion against God and disobedience to His law. In this exposition of Ephesians 5:18, Alistair Begg contrasts the wantonness caused by drunkenness with the fruitful life produced by the Spirit of God. Abuse of the good gifts that God provides leads to diminished self-control, but life in the Spirit frees the Christian to enjoy genuine joy, peace, contentment, and freedom.

    Reformation Sunday Message: "Here I Stand" by Alistair Begg

    The Reformation was both a revival and a theological revolution, and it remains vital for the Church today. Commemorating the 500th anniversary of the Reformation, Alistair Begg explains that Martin Luther faced a crucial dilemma that is common to all: how can undeserving sinners be pardoned by a holy God? The distinguishing feature of the Christian Church is the proclamation of the death and resurrection of the Lord Jesus, and the doctrine of justification remains the doctrine upon which the Church stands or falls.

    Video: "Walking in Wisdom" by Alistair Begg

    Does God care what we do with our time? In this message from Ephesians 5, Alistair Begg explains that the wise use of time should distinguish those who are in Christ from the world around us. Instead of making foolish decisions based on our feelings, impulses, or instincts, Christians should pay attention to God's Word, think carefully, and make wise decisions that bring glory to God.

    Video: "Walk in Light, Part Two" by Alistair Begg

    Those who have come to know the Lord Jesus experience the tension of living for Christ in the midst of darkness. At one extreme, we're tempted to separate from the world entirely; at the other, to embrace our culture without question. Alistair Begg reminds us that every Christian must engage the culture without accommodating the darkness present because of unbelief. The transforming light of the Gospel shines when Christians live as those who have been transformed by the grace of God with minds saturated by the Word of God. (Ephesians 5:7-14)

    Video: "Walk in Light, Part One" by Alistair Begg

    The problem with the human condition isn’t lack of education, inadequate resources, or insufficient self-effort: it’s a matter of the heart. Alistair Begg explains that by nature, every human being is corrupted by sin, and we cannot understand ourselves, our neighbors, or our culture without first wrestling with this truth. Those who are in Christ are radically transformed from darkness to light as the Spirit of God reveals the Son of God through the work of the Word of God. (Ephesians 5:8)

    Video: "Let No One Deceive You" by Alistair Begg

    In his letter to the Ephesians, the Apostle Paul addressed the reality of what it means to know, love, and follow Christ. Teaching from Ephesians 5:5-6, Alistair Begg reminds us that those God has justified, He will also purify through the continuing process of sanctification. The ground of our salvation is established in the work Jesus Christ has done, but the evidence of that salvation is in our response toward ungodliness, and is an ongoing result of the work being done in us. (Scripture: Ephesians 5:5-6)

    Video: "Do Not Give the Devil a Foothold" by Alistair Begg

    Christians have a new identity in Christ that should be reflected in our lifestyle. Alistair Begg reminds us that walking in a manner worthy of the calling we have received involves speaking truthfully, distinguishing righteous from unrighteous anger, and working diligently in order to give generously. When the Church cultivates this kind of lifestyle, it denies the devil a foothold in our lives and testifies to the power of the Gospel. (Scripture: Ephesians 4:25-28)
