Christ's sacrifice to himself (Hebrews 9: 11-14) – Listen to | Download MP3 | Buy CD ($ 1.25)
Christians of all ages are at risk of straying from the essential truths of the gospel. Alistair Begg reminds us that the answer to this dilemma is not to examine ourselves but to look to Jesus. In offering up for our sins, he made the only sacrifice that can cleanse our consciences and set us free to serve the living God.
Justice and love (Isaiah 53: 1-12, Romans 3: 21-26) – Listen to | Download MP3 | Buy CD ($ 1.25)
God loves perfectly; and he demonstrates this in his mercy. It is also true that God is perfectly righteous; and he shows this in the fact that he cannot leave sin unpunished. These truths may appear completely opposite and incompatible, but they are not. In this study, Alistair Begg teaches us how God demonstrates both his righteousness and love in the cross of Jesus Christ.
The curtain torn in two (Luke 23:45) – Listen to | Download MP3 | Buy CD $ 1.25
When Jesus died on the cross, the curtain separating 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 was playing out at the same time. Jesus' ultimate sacrifice achieved what the Old Testament priesthood never could. He freed his people from bondage to sin and declared the way to God open so that sinful men and women can approach God in faith with the confidence that our sins are forgiven.
In This Is Love (1 John 4:10) – Listen to | Download MP3 | Buy CD $ 1.25
God's love for us – for each of us – is expressed in the high cost He paid on Golgotha, which carries the wrath our sins deserve. But as we learn in this message, we will not understand our need for salvation until the Holy Spirit shows us our sinfulness.
The death of Jesus (Mark 15: 33-41) – Listen to | Download MP3 | Buy CD ($ 1.25)
Mark's account of the crucifixion contains particular observations that lead us to a deeper understanding of what Christ accomplished on the cross. Although Jesus endured the full power of suffering as a human being, the meaning of the cross lies beyond the physical agony he endured. Alistair Begg explains that Christ's death was central to God's purposes in the world: Christ bore sin and endured God's judgment to save a people for themselves.
