Hymn: "At Calvary" by William R. Newell

    Years I spent in vanity and pride,
    Caring not my Lord was crucified,
    Knowing not it was for me He died
    On Calvary.

    Download (Free) — Amazing Love — A Story of the Father's Love

    We all love a good story—but while Jesus’ parables captured the attention of many of his hearers, not everyone was so enthralled. Trusting their own good works for salvation, the Pharisees spurned Jesus’ teaching. Those who knew the emptiness of sin, however, recognized their need for the hope found in Jesus’ stories of redemption.

    Video: "A People for Himself" by Alistair Begg

    Stepping down from his leadership role, Samuel warned Israel that in demanding a king, they’d actually rejected God. While they’d sinned greatly, though, Samuel assured the people that the Lord would not forsake them. Examining Samuel’s testimony of his legacy, Israel’s history, and God’s reliability, Alistair Begg reminds us that instead of reaching for empty things that cannot deliver, we should fear the Lord, serve Him, and be thankful. Whatever evil we’ve done, God’s grace is greater, and He will complete what He’s begun.

    Hymn: "Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing" by Robert Robinson

     

    Come, Thou Fount of every blessing,
    Tune my heart to sing Thy grace;
    Streams of mercy never ceasing
    Call for songs of loudest praise.
    Teach me some melodious sonnet
    Sung by flaming tongues above
    Praise His name - I'm fixed upon it-
    Name of God's redeeming love.

    Video: "Saul Steps Up!, Part One" by Alistair Begg

    Salvation is the melody line that runs through Scripture, pointing us to Jesus. When Nahash the Ammonite came to intimidate and humiliate Israel, for example, they certainly needed saving. The people had forgotten what God had previously done for them and nearly capitulated—until Saul, angered by their faithless lament and empowered by God’s Spirit, led them to victory. God’s redemption plan isn’t a business venture that relies on our initiative, teaches Alistair Begg; it’s a battle that requires a divine invasion.

    Video: "Saul Steps Up!, Part Two" by Alistair Begg

    As word of the Ammonites reached Saul in 1 Samuel 11, the anointed king was in a field, oblivious of the brutal threat against his people. Before long, though, he had led his people to victory had been installed as king under the Lord. What changed? Alistair Begg leads us through this exciting chapter, demonstrating that Israel was saved not because they had a king but because their king possessed the Spirit of God. The Israelites may have been keen to reject the Lord, but He was not about to give up on them.

    Hymn: "How Firm a Foundation" by John Rippon

     

    How firm a foundation, ye saints of the Lord,

    To you who for refuge to Jesus have fled?

    Video: "The Path to Freedom" by Alistair Begg

    Today’s culture exhorts us to be masters of our own destinies, in control of our own lives, and absent any restrictions other than our own. True freedom, though, is actually found in obeying God’s precepts, not in release from them. Examining the cultural, biblical, and personal significance of freedom, Alistair Begg helps us discover that even a self-serving life is enslaving. Abiding rest is ours only when we surrender our lives to Christ and receive the forgiveness He freely offers.

    Download the Complete 8 Volume set of "The Gospel According to Mark"

    Mark’s Gospel emphasizes the certainty that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and the fulfillment of God’s purpose. Attributed to John Mark, a contemporary of the disciple Peter, this Gospel is identified as Peter’s first-hand account of life with Jesus. Mark provides vivid descriptions of the relationships between Jesus and the religious leaders, Jesus and His disciples, and Jesus and the multitudes who sought His miracles. Misconceptions about Jesus motivated each of these three groups to action: the religious leaders arrested Him, the disciples abandoned Him at the cross, and the crowd betrayed Him.

    Alistair Begg Reminds Us of the Greatest Story Ever Told

    Dear Friend,

    I just finished reading David Brooks’s latest book, The Second Mountain. In it, he records the impact that John Stott had upon him. Years ago, my friend Michael Cromartie (like Stott, now in heaven) told me that he had suggested to Brooks that he should read Stott. Clearly, he did, and then met him. You can read his reaction in the book.

    What Must We Recognize in Order to See God's Majesty? Alistair Begg Explains (1 of 8)

    Our world insists that self-gratification is the key to happiness. The Bible, however, declares that if we wish to experience true joy, we must seek God’s pleasure above all else. Pleasing God is not a matter of personal preference, but a priority that everyone is called to take seriously.
