What Should I Do before I Open My Bible?

    It’s humbling to think that God longs to talk to us through His Word, the Bible. No matter who we are or how many times we’ve been less than responsive to His calling, He moves purposefully toward us, still befriending us—through a book!

    Video: "He Won't Back Down" by Alistair Begg

    Rather than repent for his failed attempts to kill David, Saul repeatedly refused to back down. The Lord’s perfect plan, however, would not be thwarted. As Alistair Begg demonstrates, God protected His servant through Jonathan’s intervention, David’s skillful evasion, Michal’s deception, and the Holy Spirit’s invasion. Like David, Jesus too is either hated as a threat or loved as a best friend. Neutrality is impossible; we must bow completely before His throne.

    Sermons on Judging Others

    "Judge not, and you will not be judged; condemn not, and you will not be condemned; forgive, and you will be forgiven." —Luke 6:37

    In these sermons, Alistair Begg reminds believers that instead of judgement, we should extend forgiveness and grace to others, just as the Lord has extended them to us. When we do this, we can introduce others to Jesus in love.

    Download (Free) — ‘The Grace of Giving: A Study in Generous Christian Living’

    The subject of giving is a sensitive matter—one that many preachers avoid, not wanting to put pressure on their flock. The Bible, however, is not silent on the matter, making clear that the stewardship of our money is actually a reflection of our theology. Some give out of pity, others grudgingly, and others in order to earn favor. But why should we give? How much should we give? To whom, how often, and in what manner? Such questions are both practical and personal. Thankfully, Scripture provides clear, helpful instruction.

    Video: "As a Man Thinketh — Part Two" by Alistair Begg

    In many ways, Saul and David were complete opposites. The king was full of bravado, while the shepherd boy was self-effacing. Saul was filled with hate, while David was clearly blessed by the Lord. Eventually, David would become king—the very thing that Saul feared. Yet even he would succumb to pride. Contrasting the two men, Alistair Begg points us forward to Christ, the only King who possesses perfect humility and sincerity.

    Video: "As a Man Thinketh — Part One" by Alistair Begg

    Our thoughts don’t always align with our words. We see this truth illustrated in Saul, who showered David with generous invitations even as he eyed him with increasing envy and hostility. Giving the appearance of civility, Saul even offered God’s anointed king his daughter’s hand in marriage while secretly plotting to eliminate him. This attempt to override the Lord’s plan failed, teaches Alistair Begg, because God is sovereign, able to use even man’s evil schemes for His people’s good.

    Download (Free) - Seven Marks of an Effective Church

    What makes a church effective? Is it a functional building, excellent worship music, a vibrant youth program, or a robust teaching ministry? While our answers may vary, the burgeoning church in the book of Acts clearly provides us with seven elements for which every church should strive. These marks include the apostles’ teaching, fellowship, the sacraments, prayer, mutual care, worship, and continuous evangelism. No church will ever master all of these elements, but they should be the goals to which church leaders guide their people. Is your church on the right course?
