“I’m Not Ashamed of the Gospel”

The apostle Paul was driven by a passionate commitment to the Gospel because he recognized that it is the power of God for the salvation of sinners. Alistair Begg challenges us to measure our own commitment to the Gospel by this standard. Those who are in Christ should be marked by a transformed life and a passion for the Gospel that is fueled by loving communion with the Lord Jesus.

Hymn: “To God Be the Glory” by Fanny Crosby

To God be the glory, great things He hath done!
So loved He the world that He gave us His Son,
Who yielded His life an atonement for sin
And opened the Life-gate that all may go in.

Freedom in Christ May Not Be What You Think

Freedom in Christ is one of the great benefits of knowing God. Many Christians rightly value this wonderful gift. It’s common, however, for people to tout this freedom as a rationale for doing what they want when they want with whomever they want. Believers with a mistaken notion of Christian freedom may watch things they shouldn’t watch, can be influenced by people they shouldn’t imitate, and can say things they shouldn’t say, all the while forgoing biblical instruction and Christian fellowship. In the words of Peter, they are “using … freedom as a cover-up for evil” (1 Peter 2:16).

Have You Forgotten Your First Love?

The first-century church in Ephesus did many things right. The risen and ascended Jesus Himself commended the church for its arduous work for the Gospel, its faithfulness to Him in the face of persecution, and its commitment to the truth (Rev. 2:2–3). But despite all this high praise, the task-oriented, tough-minded, truth-telling fellowship at Ephesus lacked a crucial element. In His letter to the Ephesian church in the book of Revelation, Jesus said, “I have this against you, that you have abandoned the love you had at first” (Rev. 2:4).

Download (Free) - “A Study in the Book of Ecclesiastes: Chasing the Wind”


Trapped in a dark world without a clear a view of God, the writer of Ecclesiastes sought frantically for some light on the path—but indulging in everything this world had to offer left him empty and unfulfilled. After climbing high on life’s ladder, he made the tragic discovery that it was propped against the wrong wall. Cynical about life’s achievements, he began to question—rightly—whether anything mattered or whether everything was only vanity.

The Good Thing about Bad Days

“Life is tough, and then you die.” Maybe you’ve heard that sentiment in a song, read it on a bumper sticker, or scrolled past something similar on social media. Perhaps it lacks some nuance, but in a way, it is actually quite accurate: life in this world is often challenging, and we are all going to leave it behind one day.

Alistair Begg on the Platinum Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II

Dear Friend,

It so happened that this past weekend I was in the UK during the celebration of the Platinum Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II. I was speaking at a conference in the town of Kilmarnock, which is in Ayrshire. It was there, in 1956, that I stood with my mum and waved my Union Jack as the Queen passed through town. For the past sixty-six years I have enjoyed the privilege of being one of her subjects.

Looking for Joy? Try Living Life Backward!

Living Life Backward: How Ecclesiastes Teaches Us to Live in Light of the End explores the wonderful and wise insights from the writer of Ecclesiastes—a man who tasted every good earthly gift and concluded that nothing in this world can provide lasting joy and contentment.
