Hymn: “Just As I Am” by Charlotte Elliot

    Just as I am, without one plea,
    But that Thy blood was shed for me,
    And that Thou bidst me come to Thee,
    O Lamb of God, I come, I come.

    Download - “Jars of Clay: How God Uses Ordinary People in Extraordinary Ways”

    We live in a culture preoccupied with personality, where worth is often measured by wealth, power, prestige, and influence. In sharp contrast, the Bible reveals time and time again that God uses unremarkable people at unlikely times to accomplish His purposes. Like jars of clay, weak, ordinary men are chosen by God to show that all power and glory belong to Him alone.

    Hymn: “Take My Life and Let It Be” by Frances R. Havergal

    Take my life and let it be
    Consecrated, Lord, to thee.
    Take my moments and my days;
    Let them flow in endless praise,
    Let them flow in endless praise.

    Video: “How Crazy Is This!” by Alistair Begg

    How should we respond when God’s providence seems to contradict His promises? Afraid for his life, David ran from King Saul into Philistine territory, where he was recognized by the king of Gath’s servants. In a deliberate act of faith, David feigned insanity and trusted God with the outcome. His escape, explains Alistair Begg, rested not in his own ingenuity but in the Lord’s deliverance—the same deliverance that is available to all who flee to God for refuge.

    Sermons on the Sufficiency of the Bible

    We know what we know about God only because He has chosen to reveal it to us—and the primary means of this revelation is the Bible. Scripture accomplishes its work in our lives as we trust in its authority as the inspired Word of God. In this selection of sermons, Alistair Begg exhorts Christians to hold tightly to the Bible’s sufficiency for salvation, transformation, and proclamation.

    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?

    Video: “All One in Christ Jesus” by Alistair Begg

    It’s vital for us to live in relationship with one another. So what can account for ongoing division and inequality? Before we were united with Christ, we were helpless and hopeless, alienated from God and living in hostility toward others. As Alistair Begg explains, while efforts like legislation and education are worthwhile, they can’t change our natural condition. Only in the person of Jesus Christ can we be reconciled to God and transformed to live in unity as He designed.

    Hymn: “Jesus! the Name High over All” by Charles Wesley

    Jesus, the name high over all,
    In hell or earth or sky;
    Angels and mortals prostrate fall,
    And devils fear and fly.
    Jesus, the name to sinners dear,
    The name to sinners giv’n;
    It scatters all their guilty fear,
    It turns their hell to heav’n.

    Can We Correct Love Gone Wrong?

    We all want to love and to be loved. We’re made in the image of God, who is love. Healthy loving is at the very heart of true human flourishing, but human life is full of love gone wrong—marriages break down, relationships with family members are strained, and loneliness is an ever-increasing problem.

    Video: “What God Requires” by Alistair Begg

    How can we account for the absence of harmony in our world? When sin separated us from God, our relationship with our fellow man was also broken. But there is hope! As Alistair Begg explains, God calls His people to do justly, love mercy, and walk humbly before Him. Attempted without the Gospel or in place of the Gospel, such a call leads to despair—but in Jesus, God has provided its perfect fulfillment on our behalf.

    Video: “Pentecost” by Alistair Begg

    God’s kingdom, which Jesus ushered in, will be finally and universally established at His return. In the meantime, Christ sent His Spirit to enable followers to understand and proclaim the Gospel. Alistair Begg explains how Pentecost was an unmistakable, unconditional, unavoidable, and unrepeatable event. Language and cultural barriers were supernaturally broken down, and many received God’s word and were baptized. God’s unifying Spirit continues to draw believers together under Christ as they trust Him as Savior.

    Alistair Begg on His Mentor Derek Prime

    Dear Friend,

    “Don’t it always seem to go that you don’t know what you’ve got till it’s gone?” Joni Mitchell was referring to parks being replaced with pavements. Many of us have found the sentiment to be true in terms of our being unable to enjoy friendly gatherings, church services, mealtimes in local restaurants, and more. Even some who live alone have testified to feeling alone in their aloneness. On a recent morning, as I had begun to bemoan another lockdown day, I read Hebrews 13:6: “So we can confidently say, ‘The Lord is my helper; I will not fear; what can man do to me?’” Although we may be in lockdown, Jesus is never locked out!

    Hymn: “O the Deep, Deep Love of Jesus!” by Samuel Trevor Francis

    O the deep, deep love of Jesus!
    Vast, unmeasured, boundless, free,
    Rolling as a mighty ocean
    In its fullness over me.
    Underneath me, all around me,
    Is the current of thy love;
    Leading onward, leading homeward,
    To thy glorious rest above.
