Truth For Life Sermons with Alistair Begg
Now Concerning Spiritual Gifts... Part 3
"I don't want you to be ignorant...." With these opening words, the Apostle Paul embarks upon the sensitive journey of encouraging the Corinthian church to show wisdom and discernment in the gifts and abilities of its members. As we'll learn, this is primary in the health of the local church, for ignorance will breed those who are susceptible to wrong teaching. Wrong teaching leads to wrong living, and wrong living ultimately generates ineffectiveness in the body of Christ.
Chapter 12 of 1 Corinthians is concerned with the volatile issue of spiritual gifts. What are they? How are they manifested? Are some better than others? For many, this issue becomes a source of discrimination and individual pride rather than a source of unification and a spirit of oneness in Christ. Paul addressed these concerns with the Corinthian church, and we find that his words apply to the 21st century church as well.

Pathway to Freedom by Alistair Begg

The landscape of contemporary society reveals signs that we neither know nor care much about the Law of God. There is a general listlessness and lawlessness in the lives of professing Christians. There is also an absence of the fear of God in public worship and private living. Finally, there is a growing confidence in ourselves and an accompanying loss of confidence in God and His Word. Amidst this moral crisis, the message of the Ten Commandments can give us order, direction, and hope. With dynamic implications for how each of us lives every day, Pathway to Freedom will challenge us to think long and hard about the significance of God’s Law.

A Study on the Ten Commandments in this soft-cover edition, Alistair Begg provides a 21st century understanding of these ancient and significant words from God. Jesus said to His disciples, "If you love Me, keep My commandments" (John 14:15). Learn this important truth presented in Alistair's clear and straightforward style. Learn about the relationship between the Law and Love, Jesus' understanding and teaching of the law, the age-old battle between legalism and license, and much more!
