In this moving Christmas meditation, Alistair Begg invites us to entrust our lives to the guiding light of the Savior’s embrace. Although the world’s shadowy trials bring pain and disappointment, the joy of knowing Christ illuminates the days of those who are kept completely in His care.

    Video: "See Now What God Has Done" by Alistair Begg

    The Old Testament is not a haphazard record of historical events, but a cohesive narrative that reveals God’s redemptive purpose. In bondage to sin and unable to uphold the law, God’s people were in need of a Savior. What, then, would God do? Alistair Begg reminds us that “in the fullness of time” Christ was born of a woman and under the law. In order to fulfill all righteousness, He offered Himself as a sacrifice for sinners and redeems all who come to Him in humility and faith.

    How Can People Searching for Meaning Find It?

    Some ask:

    • Is there more to life than this?
    • Something is missing...but what?
    • I have everything...why doesn't it satisfy?

    When life is lived outside of God, it leaves a space that can't be filled.

    Share the Meaning of Christmas with a Friend Today!

    While most see Christmas as a time for giving, the story of Christ’s birth also encourages us to recognize our need—not for a process or a program, but for a person. As Alistair Begg points out, our plight is that of rebels in need of rescue. Confronted with a clear view of what we truly are and what we truly need, we face an important choice: will we receive Jesus as our Savior?

    Sermons on Christ's Birth

For those in Christ, though, Christmas’s meaning rests solely in celebrating the birth of Christ. In these sermons, Alistair Begg reminds us that behind the hustle and bustle of the holiday season, God has given us the greatest gift of all: His Son, Jesus Christ.

    Video: "God's Dwelling Place" by Alistair Begg

    Solomon’s prayer at the dedication of the Lord’s temple acknowledged that no earthly dwelling could hold the God of creation. The wonder of the incarnation, Alistair Begg explains, is that an uncontainable God took on flesh and became Immanuel, “God with us.” God's plan has always been a person, not a place. Jesus’ glory outshone that of the temple, and His death enables us to draw near to God. Though ascended to heaven, Christ still dwells among His Church, a new temple of “living stones” unified by the work of the Holy Spirit.

    Video: "The Crux of Christmas" by Alistair Begg

    Approaching Christmas as just a sugary holiday “for the kids” leaves us without an answer to our greatest need—reconciliation with God. Alistair Begg encourages us to instead view Christ’s birth in light of His historical, victorious work on the cross. At the heart of the incarnation is a profound mystery: in the fullness of time, God took on flesh to give His life as a ransom for many. Only a cross-centered Christmas will satisfy our heart’s deepest longings.
