While the word Trinity is not in the Bible, we can see the evidence of it from Genesis to Revelation. In these sermons, Alistair Begg examines the work of the Trinity in Christians’ lives.
Christian unity is not based on shared experiences, but on the profound truth that God has redeemed a people for His own. Alistair Begg explains that only those who have been redeemed by Christ and belong to God as adopted sons and daughters know God as "Father." Through the Lord Jesus, our infinite God has made himself known to save sinful men and women, and it is the Christian's greatest privilege to say, "I am a child of God."
It is a well-known scene—Jesus being baptized in the Jordan River by John the Baptist. Why was it necessary for Jesus, who is God in the flesh, to be baptized? Why did the Spirit of God send Jesus into the wilderness for forty days to be tempted by Satan? Alistair Begg reminds us that Christ persistently identified with sinners, even enduring inconceivable temptations at the hand of Satan. Through it all Christ satisfied His Father and ultimately procured forgiveness for lost men and women.
God’s purpose for His creation has one chief aim: to bring Him glory. Within the context of his letter to the church at Ephesus, the Apostle Paul specifically addressed those called to be God’s children. In the framework of God’s supreme care, Christ provides access to the Father, and the Spirit abides with the believer. Alistair Begg helps us to understand the transcendent providence, power, and presence of our Almighty God.
Approaching Christmas as just a sugary holiday “for the kids” leaves us without an answer to our greatest need—reconciliation with God. Alistair Begg encourages us to instead view Christ’s birth in light of His historical, victorious work on the cross. At the heart of the incarnation is a profound mystery: in the fullness of time, God took on flesh to give His life as a ransom for many. Only a cross-centered Christmas will satisfy our heart’s deepest longings.
As he addressed the importance of Christian unity to the Ephesians, the Apostle Paul reminded believers of the oneness of their calling. Alistair Begg explores what it means and why it matters that God has sent one Spirit and called us through one hope. Throughout the heights and depths of the Christian experience, as believers, we can enjoy the hope that fills our redemption. Listen to Part One.
