In Luke 12, Jesus called on the listening crowd to live in courageous sincerity for the Lord—a message that remains relevant to the multitudes today. Specifically, He cautioned His followers to avoid hypocrisy, to trust God when persecuted, and to never commit the unforgivable sin of ascribing the Holy Spirit’s work to the devil. Alistair Begg tackles each of these warnings, demonstrating how Jesus’ instruction is vital for modern believers to understand and obey.
