Video: "The Breastplate of Righteousness" by Alistair Begg

    Before engaging in battle, a wise warrior dons appropriate armor, including the breastplate that shields vital organs. But battle armor is only for those who have enlisted in the cause. Alistair Begg urges us to consider whether we are soldiers of the cross, entrusting ourselves entirely to Christ on the basis of His finished work. The righteousness that guards our hearts is not earned through our performance, but imputed to us by grace through faith in Jesus. When buffeted by Satan’s arrows of doubt, fear, and disappointment, we can resist by continuing to trust the Gospel, confident that our standing before God has been secured.

    Video: "The Belt of Truth" by Alistair Begg

    Recognizing that union with Christ brings conflict with the devil, Paul urged his readers to put on the armor of God. In this message, we focus on the belt of truth, which secures all that might impede our readiness for battle. As the evil one schemes to raise doubts about God and His Word, Alistair Begg reminds us that the Gospel is our ultimate armor. Confident in Christ’s victory at the cross, we can stand firm against Satan’s attacks.

    Hymn: "Jesus, I Come" by William Sleeper and George Stebbins

    Out of my bondage, sorrow and night,
    Jesus, I come, Jesus, I come;
    Into Thy freedom, gladness, and light,
    Jesus, I come to Thee.
    Out of my sickness, into Thy health,
    Out of my want and into Thy wealth,
    Out of my sin and into Thyself,
    Jesus, I come to Thee.

    How Can We Know God?

    There’s an old song that begins with the line, “To know you is to love you.” The sentiment is quite the compliment. For the Christian, though, the expression has a much deeper and more truthful application when used in reverent reference to God. As believers, our hearts long to know God better so that we can love Him more.

    O Lord My Rock: Wallpaper

    "To you, O Lord, I call;
    my rock, be not deaf to me,
    lest, if you be silent to me,
    I become like those who go down to the pit.
    Hear the voice of my pleas for mercy,
    when I cry to you for help,
    when I lift up my hands
    toward your most holy sanctuary." 

    - Psalm 28:1–2

    Hymn: "Rescue the Perishing" by Fanny Crosby

    Resuce the Perishing
    By: Fanny Crosby

    Rescue the perishing,
    Care for the dying,
    Snatch them in pity from sin and the grave;
    Weep o’er the erring one,
    Lift up the fallen,
    Tell them of Jesus, the mighty to save.

    Download the 8 Volume Set (Free) - "Firm Foundation" - A Study in 1 Corinthians

    By the time Paul wrote his first letter to the Corinthians, the church had already wandered from its foundation. Novel ideas were favored over solid, biblical teaching, resulting in confusion, division, and spiritual infancy. With a desire to help them mature, Paul addressed a number of very practical elements of faith. Noting similar struggles within the Church today, Alistair Begg walks us through the warnings and exhortations of 1 Corinthians.

    Hymn: "And Can it Be That I Should Gain" by Charles Wesley

    And Can It Be That I Should Gain?
    By: Charles Wesley

    And can it be that I should gain
    An interest in the Savior’s blood?
    Died He for me, who caused His pain?
    For me, who Him to death pursued?
    Amazing love! How can it be,
    That Thou, my God, shouldst die for me?
    Amazing love! How can it be,
    That Thou, my God, shouldst die for me?
