The Secret to Sharing the Gospel Effectively | Christian Unity

5/30/2024
Whether it’s a small folk group or a large orchestra, beautiful music comes when everyone plays together in rhythm and harmony. If each is playing a different tune, they have a word for that: yuck! Today on A NEW BEGINNING, Pastor Greg Laurie points out the importance of unity in our efforts to bring the gospel to our generation. In a time of division and disunity in the culture, it’s more important than ever that we all come together “in one accord,” as the Bible puts it.

The First Jesus Movement | Being in the World

5/28/2024
Before Covid, few of us had ever been subjected to a quarantine. But that experience effectively isolated us in a bubble. In a spiritual sense, sometimes believers are constantly isolated from the world in a self-imposed quarantine. We don’t want to be OF the world so we try not to be IN the world. Today on A NEW BEGINNING, Pastor Greg Laurie points out how that neglects one of our most important responsibilities. It’s the kick off of a new series in Acts called The Upside-Down Life.

5/27/2024
Ever try to run up a downward escalator? Sounds silly, but kids try it all the time, just to see if they can. When we try to fight against the lures of temptation on our own strength, we’re running up a downward escalator. The momentum against us is just too much. Today on A NEW BEGINNING, Pastor Greg Laurie helps us change escalators and embrace the power and provision of God through prayer. When we’re moving in the same direction as the Spirit of God, the journey is much easier.

Because of the deluge of robocalls we all get, if an unfamiliar number pops up on the phone, many people just don’t answer. Who wants those calls?

God Keeps His Promises | Learning From Noah

5/22/2024
To borrow from Mark Twain, “Bad news can travel halfway around the world, while good news is still putting on its shoes.” When an influential believer falls into sin, it seems like we hear about it at the speed of light. But how do we reach out to someone who’s helped us, when they’re the ones who need help? Pastor Greg Laurie answers that question today on A NEW BEGINNING. We’re considering a story about Noah in the Book of Genesis. This godly man sinned. But we can learn from this biblical account.

God Keeps His Promises | Prioritizing the Lord

5/21/2024
So many of us spend so little time thinking about the Lord during the day, and yet we want to live with Him forever. God’s Word has a bottomless supply of insights for life, but social media captures so much more of most people’s attention. Well today on A NEW BEGINNING, as Pastor Greg Laurie continues our Genesis series, we’ll see how Noah remembered the Lord—it was his priority—after reaching dry land following the Flood.

God's Solution to Man's Problem | The Danger of Envy

When you have to walk a ways in the snow, sometimes it’s easiest to use the same footprints on your way back. They’re easy enough to see.

Our Future Is in God’s Hands | Sunday Message

5/19/2024
“...But you heard my cry for mercy and answered my call for help” (Psalm 31:22). How often has that been true for you, too? Psalm 31 puts the overwhelming goodness of God on display, reminding us of who He is in hardship we face. Get more insight into this psalm now with Pastor Greg Laurie. Notes: Today's Scripture: Psalm 31 God determines the length of your life. God was preparing David to be a king, the greatest of Israel’s kings. The most important thing about this king is, he would be in the Messianic line. Acts 13:22 Overall, David did everything God wanted him to do, not flawlessly but faithfully. “I will be glad and rejoice in Your mercy, for You have considered my trouble and You have known my soul in adversities.” Psalm 31:7 Sometimes the ones you help the most hurt you the worst. Sometimes fellow believers will criticize you when God begins to bless you. People are going to hurt you in life, and you will hurt people as well. “God allows us to feel the frailty of human love so we’ll appreciate the strength of His.” —C.S. Lewis Forgiveness doesn’t mean condoning bad behavior or dismissing it. To forgive means, “surrendering the right to get even.” When you face tragedy, when you face hardship, the church is there for you. When people are hurting, they just need someone to be with them. Harvest Groups God is in control of our lives, and He determines how long we will live. Psalm 31:14–15 God has a beautiful future for you. Jeremiah 29:11 Get your eyes off your problems and put them on God! Psalm 31:23–24 Put your hope in God. Psalm 119:114; Romans 15:4 “If you look at the world, you’ll be distressed. If you look within, you’ll be depressed. If you look at God, you’ll be at rest.” —Corrie ten Boom “Wait on the Lord. Be of good courage, and He shall strengthen your heart. Wait, I say, on the Lord.” Psalm 27:14 As Christians, we are indestructible until God is done with us. You decide in this life where you will spend the afterlife.

Mankind has had some great ideas: air travel, space flight, the wheel, the smartphone. But everyday, each of us has some very bad ideas. God calls them sin. But, good or bad, it starts with an idea.

Trouble in Paradise | How to Fight Temptation

In the Lord’s Prayer, we read “Lead us not into temptation.” Yeah, we certainly don’t want to go down that path. But haven’t you found that sometimes temptation comes up the path and finds us!

Trouble in Paradise | The Creation of Marriage

Many products have labels noting where they were made. Maybe Made in China, Japan, Mexico, or Made in the U.S.A. Metaphorically, if we were to look at our label—the label of man himself—it would say “Made in the Garden of Eden . . . by God.” You and I were handcrafted by our Heavenly Father.

Don’t Be Afraid! | Sunday Message

5/12/2024
Psalm 27 offers us comforting words, “The Lord is my light and my salvation—so why should I be afraid?” In today’s message, Pastor Greg Laurie helps us study this Psalm, revealing the power it holds. Find the biblical wisdom you need. Notes: People’s number one fear is glossophobia. We need to face our fears. Deal with your giants, because either you conquer them, or they will conquer you. “The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The LORD is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?” Psalm 27:1 Faith overcomes fear. When faith walks in, worry walks out; but when worry steps in, faith walks out. The Christian life is not a cakewalk; it’s a conflict—it’s not a playground; it’s a battleground. There will always be something to potentially worry about. When you are afraid in the dark, turn on the light. Psalm 27:1 Anxious notions come sweeping into our mind, uninvited and unwelcome. But the presence of our heavenly Father can dispel all fear, worry, and anxiety. Face your fears in God’s strength, not your own. Psalm 27:1 God is bigger than your enemies. Psalm 27:2–3 God promises to keep us safe in His protection. Psalm 27:5 God will never allow anything to touch us that He does not allow, and He certainly will never let anything happen that would separate us from His love for us. God either did it or allowed it for His glory and our ultimate good. Romans 8:38 David knew that the main thing was to keep the main thing the main thing! Psalm 27:4–5 A danger in life is to permit the urgent things to crowd out the important things. If we don’t focus on that one thing, we will end up doing everything, and accomplish nothing. Read: Psalm 27:8–10 You have a Father in Heaven who loves you and always has time for you. God promises to be a Father to the fatherless. Your heavenly Father will never abandon you. Psalm 27:9 Take courage and continue to follow the Lord. Psalm 27:13–14 Harvest Crusade 2024 --- Learn more about Greg Laurie and Harvest Ministries at harvest.org.
