September 11, 2001 will be remembered as the day that changed the modern world. As Franklin Roosevelt declared 60 years before, this too is a day that will live in infamy. Most, if not all, of the civilized world paused to reflect on their own lives in light of the catastrophic events at the World Trade Center, the Pentagon and rural Pennsylvania.
It is in such times that the basics take center stage. We think and pray to God about family and friends, love and forgiveness, and begin to prioritize that which is most important to us. You may even have asked yourself questions like, "Why did this happen?" "What if I had been there?" or "Am I ready to die?"
In this series of messages, Alistair Begg takes us back to the basics, reminding us that life is frail and death is real. Spiritually speaking we are trapped beneath the steel beams of our own rebellion and covered by the debris of our own indifference toward God and we are powerless to extricate ourselves from our predicament. As a result we are in need of someone to come and free us. In listening to these messages you will discover that someone has provided a means of escape and that our ultimate security is found in this Rescuer.
As we trust and follow Him we will have an answer for those who ask, "What in the world is happening?"
