When we are faced with placing our eternal destiny into the hands of the Living God, it requires more than head knowledge or strong feelings. It requires a genuine faith in the Lord Jesus Christ that is defined by God in His Word. In this passage, we will learn what genuine biblical saving faith is and what it is not.
When professing Christians consistently disregard obedience to God and acts of mercy to their fellow man, their professions of faith are called into question. Genuine faith is evidenced by works spurred on by gratitude. Alistair Begg warns us that the greatest danger in our generation may be the vast number of people who take refuge in a false faith.
Alistair Begg recounts his own personal experience of coming to faith in Jesus Christ. Drawing upon his youth in Scotland, England, and later, Michigan, he encourages young people to choose relationships carefully – recognizing that friendships compel us to be good or bad, but seldom neutral. In pivotal moments when peers compel us to act, it is essential to stand firm upon our knowledge that Christ died for our sins and not waiver from our faith.
We all enjoy closing out the old year and ringing in the new. But don’t just let another year go by without knowing your Present Faith and Future Hope. Take a few minutes to reflect on eternity today.
In this message, Alistair looks to Paul’s summation in 1 Corinthians 15 concerning the resurrection of the Lord Jesus. Either Jesus is the resurrected Lord and we need to bow before him, or we are still without hope in our sin. There is no salvation without confession and faith in Jesus Christ. It is within our hearts, the whole of our being, that we believe and are put right with God through faith in the resurrection of His Son, the incarnate God.
