Hearing God's Word is Transforming

    When God's Word is heard, God's Spirit works in a transforming way in our hearts and minds so that we can see the truth of the Bible. This is a profound mystery! In our helpless state, God actively seeks us out, reaches into our hearts and minds through the Scripture, and transforms us from unbelief into a child of God saved by grace through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.

    Video: "Peace, Love, Grace" By Alistair Begg

    Closing his letter to the Ephesians similarly to how he opened it, Paul blessed his readers with the peace, love, and grace of God. Alistair Begg considers each of these elements in turn, pointing out that only God’s grace and love provide a lasting solution to man’s restlessness. When we faithfully believe and trust in Jesus, God’s unwarranted favor triumphs over our brokenness. As a result, we—like Paul—are given a new view of ourselves, others, and God.

    Video: "An Unexpected Encounter" by Alistair Begg

    Just when it seemed Philip’s preaching was becoming useful, God sent him to the desert. Philip obeyed—and as a result, he met an Ethiopian eunuch with pressing questions about Jesus. If we believe that God directs our steps, will we view every situation as an opportunity to share the Gospel? Challenging us to make the most of our circumstances, Alistair Begg instructs us on the prerequisites for sharing Christ: an inquiring mind, a prepared heart, and a ready answer.

    Video: "Tychicus Will Tell You" by Alistair Begg

    Although Paul’s background and accomplishments were impressive, none of that mattered to him by the time he wrote to the Ephesians. In his letter’s closing, we glimpse a humble, tenderhearted servant who turned the spotlight on Tychicus, an unsung hero who delivered Paul’s letters and encouraged the church. United by the Gospel, these men direct our gaze to Jesus, teaches Alistair Begg. Their example reminds us that it is faithfulness, not our list of successes, that matters in God’s kingdom.

    How Do People Know What's Real?

    Our culture says that everyone can define their own reality—that I can define my truth and you can define your truth. But for our friends and co-workers, the answers to important questions like, Where did I come from? Why am I here? and Where am I going? can't be found within.

    Discover the Depths of God's Faithfulness in the Life of Joseph

    Bitter jealousy, familial strife, betrayal, and deceit—such conflict could all be pulled straight from today’s headlines. All of this discord is also found in the extraordinary life of Joseph, as recorded in the book of Genesis. From the depths of a pit in the Canaanite wilderness to the height of prosperity in the palaces of Egypt, Joseph’s life reflected resolute courage, character, and devotion to God in the face of despair, hopelessness and fear.

    Sermons on Legalism

    In our attempt to keep God’s law, we are prone to develop our own rules, regulations, and traditions aimed at earning His favor. When we begin to regard such beliefs as the standard to which other people must subscribe, we may eventually lose sight of the Gospel itself. In this selection of sermons, Alistair Begg reminds us that legalism is not the same as pursing God’s righteousness, and we should be careful not to lead others astray.

    Video: "Pray Also For Me, Part Two" by Alistair Begg

    Throughout his sermons and letters, the Apostle Paul attested to prayer’s power and importance not only by exhortation and example, but also by requesting it for himself. As he reached the end of his epistle to the Ephesians, Paul’s specific prayer requests as an ambassador for Christ in chains affirmed his desire to freely proclaim the Gospel with confidence and clarity. When our conviction rests solely in the power of Christ’s name, we stand ready to boldly declare the message and mystery of the Gospel to a dying world.
