Jesus Christ: Compassionate Shepherd (2 of 7)

In Luke 7, we read that when John the Baptist was in prison, he sent word to Jesus through his disciples, asking, “Are you the one who is to come, or shall we look for another?” (Luke 7:19, 20). His question is a surprising one. After all, this is the same man who, John tells us, had earlier seen Jesus and declared, “Behold, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world!” (John 1:29). Now, sitting in prison, he seems to have his doubts. Why?

Behold Your God: Creator, Counselor, Controller, and Comforter

We all worship something. Despite the unbelief some confess, the truth is that people don’t want to have no god—although they often desire to have a “god” that makes them comfortable, allows them to believe whatever they think is best, and whose opinions about how they ought to live align with their own.

Begin Your Year with God: 11 Resolutions Worth Keeping

Alistair Begg Remembers Past New Year’s Eves in Scotland


Dear Friend,

Happy New Year!

It feels strange for me to greet you in this way, since I am writing in December. I must admit that I have very strong traditional views when it comes to the passage of one year into the next. It is customary here in Ohio for people to say “Happy New Year” at any point in time leading up to the first day of January. Instinctively, I refrain from returning the greeting. I should explain.
