Dealing With Depression | Committing to God

9/27/2022
Trying to live a godly life in an ungodly world can seem like we’re trying to walk up a downward escalator.

Which Side Are You On? | Warning Against Idolatry

9/26/2022
We throw the word idol around pretty freely in our culture. “So-and-so is a teen idol” . . . “did you watch American Idol?” . . . “Humphrey Bogart was a matinee idol.” But, biblically speaking, an idol is a representation or symbol of an object of worship. It’s a clear transgression of the First Commandment. Today on A NEW BEGINNING, Pastor Greg Laurie warns about idol worship based on an epic confrontation in 1 Kings 18. Elijah goes toe-to-toe with the prophets of Baal. Listen on...

Which Side Are You On? | Importance of Waiting on God

9/23/2022
None of us likes to wait. Like when we’re on hold hearing that annoying music repeat over and over again. Or when we’re in line at the grocery store or the airport. Or in the waiting room at the doctor’s office, and our name is finally called and we go to the exam room to . . . wait some more. Today on A NEW BEGINNING, Pastor Greg Laurie points out that when we wait on GOD, it can renew us. We’ll see some great miracles took place through the prophet Elijah AFTER a time of waiting on the...

Exit Stage Left | God's Plan Includes You

9/22/2022
The only part where your car touches the ground is where the wheels contact the pavement, right? You may have hundreds of horsepower under the hood, but if that power doesn’t reach the ground, nobody’s going anywhere. Today on A NEW BEGINNING, Pastor Greg Laurie points out the power of God is ready to do great things, but He wants our help to bring it to ground level. We’ll follow the example of Elijah in 1 Kings 17, and see how we can be part of God’s plan. Listen on...

Exit Stage Left | Times of Trial

9/21/2022
Getting everything we want—success, money, respect—would be an amazing way to live, right? Well, look at celebrities, who have success, money, and respect. Look at how often they suffer from depression and addictions, and sometimes die quite young. Maybe many people want the wrong things. Today on A NEW BEGINNING, Pastor Greg Laurie helps us learn from Elijah. We’ll see HE learned from some of the toughest challenges life threw at him . . . and we can too. Listen on harvest.org --- Learn...

There’s a New Kid in Town | Properly Presenting the Gospel

9/20/2022
If we preach a watered-down gospel, and people respond that half-of-a-gospel message, are they really responding to the truth? The whole truth? The truth presented clearly in Scripture? That’s an important question, and Pastor Greg Laurie tackles that today on A NEW BEGINNING. We’re studying the life of the prophet Elijah—a man who stepped out in courageous boldness and made a difference in his time. Let’s find out today how we can do the same in our time!

There’s a New Kid in Town | Ordinary With Supernatural Courage

9/19/2022
Believers have the privilege of sharing a life-saving message within their circle of influence. But many times, we let those opportunities pass by.

Today on A NEW BEGINNING, Pastor Greg Laurie introduces us to another “regular guy” who stepped out with uncommon courage and did great things for the Kingdom. Let’s learn how we can find the courage to follow in his footsteps. Listen on...

You’ve Got a Friend | Sunday Message

9/18/2022
When it comes to our relationships, we should each ask, “Am I doing this right?” And we should turn to God for the answer. Kicking off a relevant series on relationships, Pastor Greg Laurie explores what the Bible says about godly friendships. Notes In a culture that is redefining everything, we need to go to God’s original plan. A friendship is made up of two people committing themselves to one another. Jesus said, “Love your neighbor as yourself.” We need Godly friendships. You...

The Almost Christian | How to Be a Real Christian

9/16/2022
Prerequisites. Students certainly know what those are. Those are things that have to come before other things. Before you can take English 201, you have to take English 101.

The Almost Christian | Checking in on Yourself

9/15/2022
Ever drive away from home and had that nagging feeling you might have left the stove on? Or you forgot to lock a door? Or you left a curling iron plugged in?

Christ’s Call to Courage | Where to Find Courage

9/14/2022
Sometimes, it can seem as though we’re swimming against the current in our life of faith. If it isn’t opposition and even persecution for what we believe, it’s challenges in health, or finances, or relationships. How do we get through? How have others made it? Today on A NEW BEGINNING, Pastor Greg Laurie points to the Apostle Paul as our inspiration. We’re in the book of Acts considering the trial upon trial Paul faced, but the word of encouragement that pulled him through. Listen on...

Christ’s Call to Courage | Speaking Up for Truth

9/13/2022
Many people feel they just can’t function in the morning with their cup of coffee. But, long ago, coffee met with grumpy, nearly global opposition for hundreds of years (They were grumpy ‘cause they hadn’t had their coffee). People oppose lots of things, but then come to embrace them warmly. And today on A NEW BEGINNING, Pastor Greg Laurie points out how we need to realize that people need the message we share, and we need to find the courage to share it even in the face of...

How to Live a Meaningful Life | Spirit of Generosity

9/12/2022
Wouldn’t it be a remarkable world if everyone tried to out-give one another? If we saw someone in need, we automatically took care of it. We were always looking for ways to help. But we don’t live in a culture of givers, it seems like we live in a culture of takers. Today on A NEW BEGINNING, Pastor Greg Laurie helps us see how a spirit of generosity is part of the prescription for living a more meaningful life. We’re considering the Apostle Paul’s counsel about living in a way that honors...

It’s Time for Another Jesus Revolution! | Sunday Message

In this special message, Pastor Greg Laurie gives reasons to hope for another spiritual awakening in your lifetime—and shares how you can play a part. Notes America is at a crossroads right now.

How to Live a Meaningful Life | Giving It Your All

9/9/2022
In any gym, there are people there who are just getting it done . . . a certain number of reps, a certain duration of time, and–whew!–they’re done, and they’re gone.

How to Reach Our Culture with The Gospel | 6 Things to Consider

9/8/2022
As believers, sometimes it seems we’re living in some kind of weird, upside-down culture where right is wrong, up is down, and sin is to be celebrated.

He’ll show us ways to find common ground, use common language, and capture their interest with our message of hope. Listen on harvest.org --- Learn more and...

How to Reach Our Culture with The Gospel | Finding the Right Approach

9/7/2022
As believers who want to share our faith, sometimes it would seem we’re attempting to deliver a message that many people just don’t want to hear. They think they don’t NEED to hear it. The truth is, everyone needs the hope of Jesus Christ. Today on A NEW BEGINNING, Pastor Greg Laurie reminds us that God built us with a hunger for God. People may try to feed that hunger with the things of this world, but sooner or later they’ll come to realize their hunger is for something more. Listen on...
