Discipleship: Wallpaper

    "The terms and conditions of discipleship involve a radical transformation: the denial of self and the taking up of the cross, which changes my view of life and what is worth chasing in life."  — Alistair Begg

    Video: "The Donkeys and the King" by Alistair Begg

    Change was on the horizon for Israel as the nation anticipated its new king. This time of transition was not marked by God’s absence, though. Instead, it highlighted His providential care for His people. Walking us through the events that led the future king, Saul, to meet Samuel, the prophet of God, Alistair Begg helps us see that God uses even the ordinary, mundane details of our lives to bring about His purposes.

    Hymn: "I Have a Shepherd" by Leonard Weaver


    I have a Shepherd, One I love so well;
    How He has blessed me tongue can never tell;
    On the cross He suffered, shed His blood and died,
    That I might ever in His love confide.

    Book Review: "Addictions: A Banquet in the Grave" by Edward T. Welch

    There are some books which I find myself coming back to time and time again. Ed Welch’s Addictions: A Banquet in the Grave is one of them. Written nearly two decades ago, Welch’s material has aged well; I actually find the content even more relevant today. Thanks to his trademark focus on both the individual person and Scripture, one never feels they are reading a counseling-medical textbook, but rather an accessible and biblical theology of addictions. People are never abstract in his thinking, but are real souls in a real world with real struggles. Welch brings the full weight of Scripture to bear on his topic without ever reducing either the person or Scripture itself. No small task!

    Video: "Give Us a King" by Alistair Begg

    As Samuel aged and his succession plan failed, Israel clamored for a new leader. No longer wanting to be distinct, they chose to imitate the behavior of other nations and asked to trade God’s rule for that of an earthly king. While God granted Israel’s request, Alistair Begg explains, it led to great suffering, revealing our need for a perfect king. Only Christ, the one true King, reigns in absolute love and justice--and His rule will never disappoint us.

    The Bible's Priorities for Godly Fathers

    Men are often masters of delegation. Give them a task, and they can quickly assign just the right person to do it. A simple phone call? Let the office assistant make the connection. Household chore? One of the kids can get it done.

    Delegation is a wonderful thing—but what about abdication? What if we assign away our responsibilities?

    Are You Weary from Trials?

    Video: "A Lamb, A Stone, and An Altar" by Alistair Begg

    At Mizpah, the Israelites received thunderous, dramatic deliverance from their Philistine oppressors. Samuel had once again prayed on their behalf, his access to God granted through a blood sacrifice as atonement for sin. Alistair Begg helps us realize how this moment anticipated the perfect Lamb to come and depicted God’s enduring faithfulness to His children. As we praise God for all He has done and trust Him for all that is to come, our lives remind others that our help comes from the Lord alone.

    Video: "Samuel's Solid Leadership" by Alistair Begg

    Although the Israelites had rebelled against God’s rule, the Lord mercifully provided a leader for His people in Samuel. As a spiritual leader, Samuel reminded Israel that their fall into idolatry was not an external problem but an issue of the heart. Alistair Begg notes that a pastor’s priority must similarly be to faithfully proclaim God’s Word, for when the Word is present and active, it leads to repentance, right relationship with God, and transformed hearts.

    Alistair Begg on Heeding God's Instruction

    Dear Friend,

    I have a vivid recollection of seeing scenes from the book The Pilgrim’s Progress portrayed on screen using glass hand-painted slides in a large, unwieldly projector. (Yes, I’m that old!) When John Bunyan wrote The Pilgrim’s Progress, he could never have imagined that it would have an impact that spanned centuries.
