What does it mean to be -in Christ--- Paul addressed this question in his letter to the church in Colossae, reminding them of Jesus' transformative work while urging them to cultivate a heart of thankfulness. In this Thanksgiving message, Alistair Begg underscores the direct correlation between a transformed heart and a life that is lived out under the Lord Jesus. For the believer, such a life is characterized by an identity ground...

Jesus' declaration that He was -the bread of life- stirred both anger and opposition in the Jewish people. Confident in what they already knew about Him, they grumbled, with some not hearing, some hearing and doubting, and others hearing and disputing. Alistair Begg reminds us that we often have the same responses to Jesus today. Left to our sinful selves, we do not choose to believe in Him. Instead, our resistant hearts must be dr...

In seasons of doubt or discouragement, how do we know our faith is secure-- In John 6, Jesus spoke of the vast wonder of saving faith, declaring Himself to be -the bread of life.- Whoever comes to Him and believes in Him, He said, will not hunger or thirst, nor will they ever be cast out. Examining these remarkable and reassuring words, Alistair Begg reminds us that our salvation is grounded in the will of God, given by the Father,...

After Jesus miraculously fed thousands, the crowds revealed their hearts by the questions they asked. They focused on their physical needs rather than Christ's spiritual provision, sought to earn salvation rather than receive it, and hoped for more miracles in order to be convinced of Jesus' deity. In this study from John 6, Alistair Begg examines the needful warning, remarkable declaration, and gracious invitation Jesus offered in...

When Jesus walked on water, His disciples reacted in fear and disbelief, even despite having just witnessed Jesus' miraculous feeding of the five thousand. Echoing words from the Old Testament, Jesus displays to His followers proof of His deity. Alistair Begg emphasizes how true security only comes from Christ and warns us that proximity to Christ is not the same as being in a personal relationship with Him. When we repent of our s...

During His earthly ministry, Jesus performed numerous signs, including feeding thousands of people by miraculously multiplying five loaves and two fish. Many who witnessed this miracle were fascinated, followed Christ, and yet remained unchanged, because they were more focused on the miracle than on what it signified. Others took offense at His words and walked away. As Alistair Begg explains, however, signs like this help us under...

Jesus stands at the crossroads between the broad way that leads to destruction and the narrow path that leads to eternal life. In this study of John 5-25, Alistair Begg examines Jesus' announcement of two critical, life-transforming hours- one in the present, when the spiritually dead are made alive in Christ, and another in the future, when Christ returns and the physically dead will be resurrected to either eternal life or eterna...

With words alone, Jesus healed a helpless man who'd been paralyzed for thirty-eight years. Instead of rejoicing over the miracle, though, the Jews focused on broken Sabbath rules and traditions and sought to persecute, and ultimately kill, Christ. Alistair Begg explains how Jesus' words can either radically transform a person's life or inflame hard-hearted opposition, because they so clearly declare His deity. Yet Jesus still invit...

In the early part of John's Gospel, Jesus has a conversation with Nicodemus, a Jewish leader who questions Jesus' authority. Jesus answers him, making it clear that being -born again- is necessary in order to see the kingdom of God. Alistair Begg reminds us that the new birth of which Jesus spoke is essential and supernatural-a miraculous and mysterious work of Almighty God that brings about a complete change of heart and gives the...

Throughout the Gospels, Jesus makes pronouncements that begin with the word -Truly--but only in the Gospel of John does He use the word in repetition. Alistair Begg reminds us that Jesus' -Truly, truly- declarations must be understood in view of the overarching purpose of John's Gospel and in the context of the preceding verses. John's account of Jesus, which begins with eternity past, gives heaven-sent evidence so that we may beli...

In this interview about his book The Christian Manifesto, Alistair Begg considers the challenge presented to us in Jesus' Sermon on the Plain and its relevance two thousand years later. The Lord's teachings on forgiveness, possessions, obedience, and more speak to and make demands on believers from every background. But as we remember the compassionate character of our Lord and put our trust in Him, we can learn to live the life He...

Jude closed his letter to Christ's followers with a doxology praising the splendor and sovereignty of the one true and timeless God. Wrapping up a study in Jude, Alistair Begg explains why our knowledge of God shapes the way we worship Him and directs how and why we share the Gospel with others. Like Jude, those who have experienced God's mercy and salvation should be driven to humbly declare His glory to a predominantly lost and s...

Can knowing the God of the Bible help us tackle life's issues or fix our problems-- The closing verse of Jude's letter returns his readers to where he began, focusing on the greatness of -the only God, our Savior,- who has dominion and authority over all things. Far from being impractical or irrelevant, as this and every worldly culture is prone to think, Alistair Begg reminds us that knowing God through Christ provides the only fr...

Against the dark and dangerous backdrop that Jude depicts in the earlier portion of his letter, just how will believers make it safely to the Christian life's finish line-- Jude's concluding verses answer this question, assuring readers of God's faithful work in their lives. Alistair Begg reminds us that God's great work-namely, His preservation of, presentation of, and jubilation over His people-is at the very heart of the life of...

With so much opposition to a biblical worldview surrounding us, how do we navigate the time in which we live with grace, kindness, mercy, and sensibility-- In this message, Alistair Begg provides four words that frame our discussions about the Christian faith- the -good,- the -bad,- the -new,- and the -perfect.- Beginning with the creation account in Genesis, we can understand how we came to be, what happened when sin entered the w...

At the Lord's Supper, believers are invited to eat and drink as we remember and give thanks for Jesus, who has set us free. But what does it mean to be free in Christ-- Alistair Begg examines two short verses in Galatians 4 that summarize Christ's work and remind us of the immense privilege of knowing God. We are free because Christ has fulfilled the law as our representative and assumed the penalty for our sin on the cross. As ado...

In the closing portion of his letter, Jude reminded his readers of the scoffers who would come, encouraging believers to deal mercifully with -those who doubt.- Explaining Jude's exhortation, Alistair Begg addresses how we should care for these three types of doubters- with the first group, kindly and patiently bearing with them- with the second, pursuing them wholeheartedly to save them from imminent danger- and with the third, pr...

God's providence is a difficult doctrine to grapple with amid suffering. Speaking at Parkside's Cancer Support Dinner, Alistair Begg reminds us that like Naomi, who acknowledged God's providence alongside her bitter pain, we ought to be honest about our circumstances without feeling that we have given up on God by doing so. God was working in the particulars of Naomi's life as well as in the broad strokes of history to accomplish H...

In every generation, the church will encounter those who oppose the things of God. Jude therefore urged believers to contend for the faith and to keep themselves -in the love of God.- Alistair Begg reminds us that this -keeping- is not mysterious or isolated- rather, it is an exhortation to the regular assembly of worship, where we hear from God's Word and cultivate relationships with other believers. It is a call to steadfast pray...
