Truth For Life Sermons with Alistair Begg
The word Sabbath simply means rest or cessation from work. Did you ever wonder why God took six days to create everything? Clearly He did not need to take six days — God is able to create instantaneously — but He decided that He would take six days. And why did He rest on the seventh day? He certainly did not need to rest — for it is impossible for Him to be fatigued — but He did rest from His work of creation. In doing these things He established a pattern, a cycle of life: six days of work and one day of rest. Many of us give very little thought to how we use the Lord's Day. In fact any attempt at maintaining the sanctity of the Sabbath is often seen as nothing more than a present day form of Phariseeism. After all Jesus did say the Sabbath was made for man and not man for the Sabbath? When He made this declaration was He setting aside all the old laws? In these studies Alistair Begg helps us examine the contemporary Christian Sabbath and asks, "Is it possible that theology has been replaced with expediency in regards to this issue? How should today's Christian comply with the fourth commandment?"

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!
