Final Greetings

References: 1 Corinthians 16

"When Jesus calls people to himself, he calls them to serve. So, whether we're called to serve in the capacity of an elder or an evangelist or a pastor, or whether we called to something entirely different, all of us are called to service. And service in the Bible's terms is not a preliminary or a pathway to greatness. Service is greatness." —Alistair Begg
In the closing chapter of 1 Corinthians, Paul teaches us that the reality of Christ's resurrection has a direct impact upon ordinary life. Some of us may be inclined to believe that the high matters of doctrine are fine to think about on Sunday but are basically irrelevant to what we do on Monday. Paul's final words challenge such a mindset. This volume of Firm Foundation is an exposition of the plain and practical instruction that Paul gave to the Corinthian church. We see here that if our beliefs are to be believable, there must be behavior that issues from our beliefs. Join Alistair as he clarifies the marks of this behavior and concludes the study of 1 Corinthians.

The Hole in Our Holiness

The Hole in our Holiness is that we don't seem to care much about holiness. Or, at the very least, we don't understand it. And we all have our reasons too: Maybe the pursuit of holiness seems legalistic. Maybe it feels like one more thing to worry about in your already overwhelming life. Maybe the emphasis on effort in the Christian life appears unspiritual. Or maybe you've been trying really hard to be holy and it's just not working! Whatever the case, the problem is clear: too few Christians look like Christ and too many don't seem all that concerned about it. This is a book for those of us who are ready to take holiness seriously, ready to be more like Jesus, ready to live in light of the grace that produces godliness. This is a book about God's power to help us grow in personal holiness and to enjoy the process of 
transformation.
