  • God Gave Them Up (Part 2) - Alistair Begg

    Romans 1: 26 -27

  • God Gave Them Up (Part 1) - Alistair Begg

    Why is there so much chaos and suffering around us? How did God’s perfectly created world come to be so broken down? Like Adam and Eve, we turn our backs on God whenever we exchange His truth for the devil’s lies. Yet while God has given the unrepentant over to their idols, He has also provided a...

  • Without Excuse - Alistair Begg

    The apostle Paul urgently warned others about the Lord’s wrath and preached the Gospel of salvation. In his letter to the Romans, in particular, he was clear that all are sinners, with no exceptions, no excuses, and no escape from judgment except through faith in Jesus. Noting that Paul’s explana...

  • Why We Need the Gospel - Alistair Begg

    The wrath of God is an uncomfortable topic that many prefer to avoid. Yet it is only when we understand God’s righteous judgment against sin that we can truly face our predicament as sinners and see our dire need for a Savior. Alistair Begg explains that the cross of Christ is all that stands bet...

  • The Gospel is the Power of God - Alistair Begg

In this Reformation Sunday message, Alistair Begg highlights the Gospel's power to reveal God's righteous character and activity. If believers are to boldly proclaim the good news...

  • The Main Things Are the Plain Things - Alistair Begg

    King David called for a census that he imagined would bring pleasure, but instead, it brought pain and God's wrath. Seeking to intervene on behalf of his people, David built an altar, offered sacrifices, and asked that he alone would bear the punishment. While much remains unexplained in this pas...

  • Refuge in Him - Alistair Begg

    While David was called a man after God's own heart, he was neither a perfect man nor a perfect king. So how can we account for David rejoicing that he was righteous and clean before a holy God? Examining 2 Samuel 22, Alistair Begg explains that David was not claiming sinlessness. Rather, David wa...

  • Sojourners and Exiles - Alistair Begg

    Christians increasingly understand what it means to be sojourners and exiles in a Western world that, not long ago, commonly gave those with biblical convictions a seat at the table. Drawing from Peter’s first letter to the early, scattered church, Alistair Begg explains how to live faithfully in...

  • The Curtain Torn in Two - Alistair Begg

    When Jesus died on the cross, the curtain that separated the Most Holy Place in the temple was torn in two from top to bottom. In this Good Friday message, Alistair Begg reminds us that this event dramatically illustrated the truth that unfolded at the same time. Jesus' once-for-all sacrifice acc...

  • The Need for Prayer - Alistair Begg

    Paul did not hide his vulnerability to the Enemy's accusations, to pride, or even to depression. In his letters, however, the apostle's main concern was not for his personal battles. Instead, he continually asked his readers to pray that he might have utterance and boldness to proclaim the Gospel...

  • A Child is Born - Alistair Begg

    Most of us know Handel’s oratorio chorus Messiah, and at Christmastime, we are delighted by the sounds of its most famous song, the “Hallelujah” chorus. But did you know that this song can only truly be sung after an earlier set proclaims, “For unto us a child is born”?

    The words for this song a...

  • Faith in Jesus - Alistair Begg

    The Reformation marked a pivotal event in church history—namely, a return to the apostolic Gospel. In this Reformation Day message, Alistair Begg examines the good news of salvation as proclaimed in Romans 3: that a right standing with God is not something that we are called to produce but someth...

  • The Word of the Cross - Alistair Begg

    The cross stands as the definitive point of history, but the Church is in danger of so trivializing the notion of sin that the cross of Christ loses its meaning. Using the example of the Apostle Paul, Alistair Begg explains that pastors must preach Christ and Him crucified at every opportunity. T...

  • Why Worry? God's in Charge! - Alistair Begg

    Worry is like telling our omnipotent God the unthinkable: “I don’t trust You.” Yet worry is still a struggle for many who have experienced God’s goodness—even mature believers. Reflecting on Jesus’ words about anxiety, Alistair Begg explains that we can think rightly about our troubles when we vi...

  • I Found it Necessary - Alistair Begg

    Alistair Begg kicks off the 2013 Basics Conference from the small, but powerful book of Jude. Countering conventional notions that the book of Jude is primarily a book for contentious preaching, Alistair takes us into the heart and mind of the brother of Jesus, Jude who gives not a letter of cond...

  • But God - Alistair Begg

    Every person is spiritually dead as a result of sin, but the bad news of our condition magnifies the wonder of what God has done for us in Christ Jesus. Alistair Begg explains that because we are united with Christ, we have died to sin with Him, and God has made us spiritually alive. He has raise...

  • You Are the Man! (Part 2) - Alistair Begg

    The account of David’s repentance in 2 Samuel 12 is complemented by Psalm 51, where the king recognizes that sin is a matter not of what he has done but of who he fundamentally is. Alistair Begg reminds us that repentance like David’s is evidence of God’s grace at work in our heart. Through Chris...

  • You Are the Man! (Part 1) - Alistair Begg

    Externally, King David’s attempt to cover up Uriah’s murder appeared successful—but the Lord saw it and was displeased. In His mercy, God sent His servant Nathan to confront the king. Exposed by God’s word, David confessed his sin and received the Lord’s pardon. While the consequences of the king...

  • The Power and Message of the Cross - Alistair Begg

    While most people would agree that our world is broken, they may not agree about how to fix it. The only solution, Alistair Begg clarifies, is found in the execution of an innocent man: Jesus, the Son of God. We must continue to proclaim the message of Christ’s death on the cross both to ourselve...

  • Citizens of Heaven - Alistair Begg

    In Philippians, Paul was writing to a church located in a city that was thoroughly Roman in all ways of life. Similarly, all of us live within the influence of a particular cultural and national context. As Paul reminds us, though, as Christians we have a citizenship that transcends all earthly, ...

  • Jesus, the Word - Alistair Begg

    The Jesus we see agonizing in the Garden of Gethsemane is the same eternal “Word” who created the universe: He is neither merely “like God” nor derived from the Father, but fully divine. In this sermon, Alistair Begg encourages us to study His part in the Holy Trinity. As he reminds us, the Bible...

  • Let the Lion Out - Alistair Begg

    As the apostle Paul neared the end of his life, he issued a solemn and simple charge to his apprentice Timothy: “Preach the Word.” Alistair Begg unpacks this exhortation and extends its challenge to us today. Do we believe what Scripture tells us, and are we prepared to affirm it in a collapsing ...
