The Delight of the Sabbath

The Sabbath wasn’t meant for the enforcement of endless rules. It was, and is, intended to draw people closer to God. So how do we take the Sabbath seriously without becoming legalistic or self-righteous? Hear the answer on Truth For Life with Alistair Begg.

  1. Thank you so much for having pastor Alistair Begg as one of your main speakers. His method of preaching helps me understand so much. I have many questions that never seem to have answers. I have a concordance Bible with study notes on each page, but sometimes I still can’t figure out the answers. His way of explaining the Bible and life concepts is clear and helpful. He also has a wonderful sense of humor. He preaches the Bible, not his opinion. I like that. Some versions of the Bible are difficult to understand, but his teaching makes it so simple. I recently requested his book. It’s quite informative and it gives me a deeper understanding of who Jesus was and is. I believe we are all Seekers because, none of us are perfect, so in order to seek properly, we need pastors to help us interpret God’s written Word. I love God and do my best to listen to the guidance of his Holy Spirit. I treasure the fact that I belong to Jesus. I still have many questions and probably will never have some of those answered. But that’s ok. I keep on seeking and reading God’s Word. One day I will have those answers face to face.

  2. Second note today:
    I thoroughly enjoy listening to Family Radio. It helps keep my mind focused on God and my life with God as an integral part of it. When I’m driving in silence, I often find myself allowing drivers with road rage to drain my peace, since my focus is on them and their choices. Drivers who feel they’re so special they can make their own rules and the rest of us need to honor their choices. I’m 76, so I tend to drive more slowly, like a “grandma” and stay out of the way of the crazy drivers as much as possible. Listening to Family Radio sermons, Scripture readings and music, while I’m driving helps me to focus on God, pray for others and not dwell on the crazy drivers. Listening to the words of some of the songs is just like talking to God. The songs are scripture-based, and many of them feel like prayers. My only concern is that I would like to know who some of those singers are and what the names of the songs are so I can share those same songs with my family and friends. I’m sure if they are being played on Family Radio that they are also available in stores. When I first began listening to Family Radio you included the names and artists in your app but you don’t do that now and I don’t understand. I think it was a useful tool. I still listen but I’m not as totally satisfied as I was in the beginning. I’ve bought so many of those CDs for my family.

    1. Hi Carolyn! Thank you so much for being a part of Family Radio and your feedback about the programs and music. Although the app doesn’t allow the display of the songs and artists anymore, we do have a place on our website to go check the playlist for the past couple hours if you’d like to get the information to share with family and friends. You can go to our daily playlist here: https://www.familyradio.org/audio-podcasts/daily-playlist/. Thank you for sharing and being a blessing to others.

      Also, we’d love for you to help us further by being a part of our listener advisory board and give us your opinion on a survey that is sent out once a month. If you’d like to join, please sign up here: https://www.familyradio.org/music/listener-advisory-board/. We’d love to hear more from you!
