Video: "For Myself a King, Part Two" by Alistair Begg

    Those familiar with the story of 1 Samuel know King David as “a man after God’s own heart.” Alistair Begg helps us consider how this description speaks more to God’s character than to David’s. David was not anointed as king because of his personal qualities. Rather, God chose him according to His electing love and perfect will.

    Download (Free) - "Shaped by Grace" - How the Gospel Transforms Us

    Alistair Begg on His Favorite Hymn

    Dear Friend,

    Perhaps my favorite hymn is “Praise, My Soul, the King of Heaven.” It was written by Scotsman Henry Francis Lyte and it is inspired by Psalm 103.

It served to turn our attention from ourselves to the grace, favor, and glory of God.

    Video: "Grace—Faith—Jesus" by Alistair Begg

    Burdened by his works-based religion, Martin Luther knew no peace until God’s Spirit revealed the Gospel’s message of grace. At his conversion, Luther acknowledged that salvation is not based on merit; rather, it comes by grace alone, through faith alone, and in Christ alone. In this Reformation Sunday sermon, Alistair Begg highlights the grace and love of God, who works to call sinners to Himself. Whether we are weighed down by failure or enslaved to pride, we can find forgiveness at the cross of Jesus.
