Video: "My Mother and My Brothers" by Alistair Begg

    What would Jesus think about Mother’s Day? The brief glimpses provided in Scripture reveal that while Jesus was respectful, courteous, and concerned for His mother’s care, His priority was to do the work of His Father—and although she gave birth to Christ, even Mary was in need of salvation. In this “charcoal sketch,” Alistair Begg surveys the Bible passages that record Jesus’ interactions with His mother. These scenes remind us that, like Jesus, our duty to God must take precedence over everything else, including family loyalty.

    Video: "A Communion Meditation" by Alistair Begg

    Paul wrote to the Colossian believers to assure them of their identity in Christ and to urge them on to maturity, lest they be drawn away from the truth. Having once been alienated from God, he explained, they were now reconciled by Christ. Jesus’ death covered every individual sin, and one day He would present His people holy and blameless to His Father. As Alistair Begg makes plain, while everyone’s heart is hostile to God, in Christ we have been radically transformed from what we once were.

    Video: "He Saw and Believed" By Alistair Begg

    The finality of Christ’s burial left His disciples in a state of fear and mourning. The silence of the grave, however, would not last for long. On the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene discovered an empty tomb that proclaimed Jesus’ decisive victory over sin and gave rise to the fledgling faith of all who saw and believed. The Spirit of God, Alistair Begg explains, has the power to raise Christ from the dead and transform mockers and doubters into bold witnesses for Christ.

    Video: "It Must Be So" by Alistair Begg

    Deserted by His companions, bound, spat upon, beaten, mocked, flogged, and crucified—why did God allow this to happen to His own Son? Why did Jesus freely and willingly give up His life when He could have called legions of angels to His aid? In this special Good Friday message, Alistair Begg explains Scripture’s teaching that these events took place as an expression of God’s divine love for us, in fulfillment of His sovereign plan, and to provide salvation for all who would believe in Christ.

    Video: "The Lord Reigns" By Alistair Begg

    The world’s chaos may tempt us to cry out, “Is anyone in charge around here?” Reminding us that the Lord Omnipotent still reigns, Alistair Begg examines the biblical clarity, mystery, and security of God’s providence. Our creator and sustainer, God remains sovereign over all things—including rulers and rebels alike. Even when the wicked flourish and we are disheartened, we can trust Him to keep His promises and fulfill His purposes for His glory and our good.

    Video: "That's Not Normal!" By Alistair Begg

    When news of Israel’s defeat reached Eli and his pregnant daughter-in-law, their responses were peculiar. Their deepest concern was not their loved ones’ deaths, the child’s unexpected birth, or even their own demises, but that the ark had been captured and God’s glory had departed from Israel. For the church to remain effective, Alistair Begg warns, we must also turn our attention from “me” and “now” to God’s glory as we nurture the next generation in the things of Christ.

    Video: "Misplaced Faith" by Alistair Begg

    Defeated by the Philistines, Israel’s army brought the ark of the covenant to Shiloh to assure victory in the next battle—and were soundly beaten again! Their mistake? Failing to recognize their first defeat as punishment for disobedience, they forsook repentance and superstitiously trusted in the ark rather than in the living God. Such misplaced faith is still common today. Rather than defining God by our own terms, Alistair Begg encourages us to know the God of the Bible and glorify Him through our obedience.

    Video: "Speak Lord!" by Alistair Begg

    Because Eli’s sons had rejected God’s sacrifice as the basis for forgiveness, the Lord declared judgment against Eli’s house. Acting as God’s prophet, Samuel presented His message to Eli, experiencing for the first time the immense challenge of conveying God’s word—especially the truth of coming wrath. As Alistair Begg explains, though, God’s word will always accomplish His purposes, whether spoken faithfully by Samuel or fully and finally through the Word of God Himself, Jesus Christ.

    Video: "The Word of the Lord" by Alistair Begg

    After years of spiritual famine when the word of the Lord was rare and visions infrequent, God broke into the silence through the calling of Samuel. With tender persistence, the Lord called until Samuel recognized His voice. His first assignment? To deliver devastating news to Eli about the coming judgment of the priest’s household. In the same way, Alistair Begg notes, God continues to shine through our own days’ darkness by the light of His Word.
