    Video: "From Victory on to Victory" by Alistair Begg

    As Goliath assumed his battle position, he was insulted by what he saw: his opponent clearly lacked both experience and equipment. Standing in one corner of the metaphorical ring, the giant cursed David by his gods, unaware that the unassuming shepherd boy in the other corner was empowered by the one true and living God. Alistair Begg explains that Israel’s only hope rested in God’s provision of an anointed and appointed deliverer. The same God who granted David victory has also secured our victory over sin through Christ, giving us every reason for thanksgiving.

    Alistair Begg's 2019 Christmas Letter

    Dear Friend,

    I was six years old when Christmas Day became an official holiday in Scotland! That’s right—1958! Until the 1960s, it was the norm for most people across the country to work as usual if December 25 fell on a weekday. The reason for this was not secular but religious. The Scottish Reformation not only removed the dogma of Roman Catholicism but also frowned upon superstitious celebrations of “Yuletide.” In my own city of Glasgow, even singing a Christmas carol was considered a crime, and in 1640 an Act of Parliament made celebrating Christmas illegal. In my lifetime, the headmaster of a local elementary school in the Scottish Highlands was dismissed for having a Christmas tree in the vestibule.

    “One flaw spoils the diamond; one treason makes a traitor; one turn sends a man out of the way; one leak sinks the ship; one wound strikes Goliath dead; and one Delilah betrays Samson. So many men, by favoring one sin, lose God, heaven and their souls forever. Sin favored, ever ends in tragedy.” —Thomas Brooks, Works, 4:110–118 (Voices from the Past, Volume 2)

    "Consider how He has loved you and given Himself for you! Do you know the power of that love? Then let it be like a rushing, mighty wind to your soul to sweep out the clouds of your worldliness and clear away the mists of sin."

    Video: "It's Go Time" by Alistair Begg

    As Israel stood paralyzed with fear before Goliath, David’s words put this defiant enemy in his rightful place before God. When David volunteered to go and face the giant, though, Saul doubted the young shepherd. Making his case for confronting Goliath, David expressed trust not in weapons, armor, or himself but in the Lord. Alistair Begg examines this exchange between Israel’s spiritually depleted ruler and its Spirit-filled future king, directing our gaze to the ultimate Savior and King, Jesus Christ.
