Today we’ll be hearing Grace and Peace (Part 1) of a series entitled Growing in Grace by Alistair Begg.
Alistair Begg has been in pastoral ministry since 1975. Following graduation from The London School of Theology, he served eight years in Scotland at both Charlotte Chapel in Edinburgh and Hamilton Baptist Church.
In 1983, he became the senior pastor at Parkside Church near Cleveland, Ohio. He has written several books and is heard daily and weekly on the radio program, Truth For Life. The teaching on Truth For Life stems from the week by week Bible teaching at Parkside Church.
He and his wife, Susan, were married in 1975 and they have three grown children. [Source]
Grace and Peace (Part 1 of 2)
When Peter wrote his second letter, moral carelessness and false teaching was on the rise among the people of God. Peter urged his readers to return to the basics of the Gospel. We begin a new study in Second Peter called Growing in Grace on Truth For Life with Alistair Begg!
2 Peter 1:12-15 (ESV)
12 Therefore I intend always to remind you of these qualities, though you know them and are established in the truth that you have. 13 I think it right, as long as I am in this body, to stir you up by way of reminder,14 since I know that the putting off of my body will be soon, as our Lord Jesus Christ made clear to me. 15 And I will make every effort so that after my departure you may be able at any time to recall these things.
2 Peter 1:12-15 (NIV) | Prophecy of Scripture
12 So I will always remind you of these things, even though you know them and are firmly established in the truth you now have. 13 I think it is right to refresh your memory as long as I live in the tent of this body, 14 because I know that I will soon put it aside, as our Lord Jesus Christ has made clear to me. 15 And I will make every effort to see that after my departure you will always be able to remember these things.
In Christ Jesus,
