All your anxiety—leave it there.

Video: “The Incomparable Christ — Part Four” by Alistair Begg

Since the beginning, man has been rebellious. By nature, instead of trusting God’s wisdom and goodness, we assert our right to rule over our own lives. By grace, though, God established Jesus as the ultimate King to subdue us to Himself, to defend and keep us, and to conquer our enemies. Alistair Begg teaches that by submitting to His reign, ordinary people like us are welcomed into an eternal community where harmony and intimacy will be restored. Will we accept God’s invitation?

Video: “The Incomparable Christ — Part Three” by Alistair Begg

By His death, Jesus became the ultimate scapegoat to bear all sin, the ultimate sacrifice to endure God’s wrath, and the ultimate High Priest to secure eternal forgiveness. Christ’s finished work—once for all, for all time—ensured salvation for believers. As our Priest, though, He also continues to intercede for us before God. Turning our focus from self-effort to Jesus, Alistair Begg explains how the cross deals with our failures, fears, and final judgment.

And with all who will trust and obey.

As the ordained mediator between God and man, Jesus fulfills the three offices of Prophet, Priest, and King. Focusing on Christ’s prophetic role, Alistair Begg explains its significance for personal faith, biblical preaching, and everyday evangelism. By nature, we reject God and His salvation. Jesus alone can open our hearts and minds so that we truly understand God’s Word. Only then can we confidently, courageously, and compassionately convey the Gospel to a lost, darkened world.

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.

God’s inscrutability doesn’t imply that faith is a leap in the dark. Rather, we ought to consider the evidence of Scripture with reasoned trust. Although by nature we tend to suppress the truth, our minds are indispensable, teaches Alistair Begg. Through faith, God opens our hearts and minds to consider all that He reveals and points us toward Jesus, our incomparable Savior, Shepherd, and Friend.

Alistair Begg Encourages Us to Give an Answer for Our Hope

Dear Friend,

I am pretty sure that a number of us have found ourselves turning to the concluding verses of Habakkuk during these somewhat daunting days. The prophet, much like Job and sometimes the psalmist, is having a hard time reconciling the difficulties God’s people face with His promise to protect and provide. Resolution comes when he turns to God in prayer and reminds himself that “God, the Lord, is my strength,” and so although he may be faced with a series of material disasters, yet he “will rejoice in the Lord” and “take joy in the God of my salvation.” I encourage you to read the short prophecy. Remember Paul’s words to the church at Rome: “For whatever was written in former days was written for our instruction, that through endurance and through the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope.”
