No matter the time or place, Jesus Christ is bound to capture our attention. How can one man gain followers willing to die for Him while also drawing the ire of others who hate Him? One thing’s for certain: whether we worship Him or walk away from Him, it’s impossible to ignore Him.
In this series of messages, Alistair Begg explores what the gospels have to say about the identity and work of Jesus. It didn’t matter if He was raising the dead or receiving a drink—Jesus used every opportunity to love others to the glory of God. When we contemplate Jesus on the cross, we see His great love for humankind and His obedience to the Father; when we consider Him seated on His throne, we see the unblemished author and finisher of our faith. Getting to know Christ better through the testimony of God’s Word will make us all the more prepared to spend our lives dedicated to pursuing God’s glory.
