Are You His Disciple? | Choosing God Over the World

12/2/2022
What’s right isn’t always popular, and what’s popular isn’t always right. It’s easy to go with the flow . . . laugh along with others at an inappropriate joke, remain silent when a co-worker is about to do something unethical. But those who never stand for something eventually will fall for anything. Today on A NEW BEGINNING, Pastor Greg Laurie helps us put our faith—our relationship with God—front and center in our daily lives. It’s part of walking the rewarding pathway of...

Are You His Disciple? | The Importance of Growth

12/1/2022
It’s one thing to be ON the team, it’s another to be IN the action. It’s one thing to watch from the bench, it’s another to get in the game. Spiritually speaking, our salvation is a free gift from God—Jesus paid the price. But discipleship has a cost. It’s a higher level of devotion . . . and a higher level of reward! Today on A NEW BEGINNING, Pastor Greg Laurie helps us chart a course for genuine discipleship. And he begins by commenting on an evangelistic outreach that had just...

11/30/2022
The Christian life isn’t constant rainbows and butterflies. It’s not bliss, bling, and bemusement. And we shouldn’t promise that kind of life in our presentation of the Gospel. We need to be honest.

We’ll learn more today on A NEW BEGINNING, as Pastor Greg continues our study of Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount. It’s timeless insight that stretches right into the 21st Century. Listen...

The Nonbeliever's Favorite Verse | Should Christians Judge?

11/28/2022
The Lord tells us He’s not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance. Yes, God judges sinners but that’s not His desire. What’s our desire? When someone is in sin, do we reflect the Lord’s objective, that we should lovingly lead them back into fellowship with God? Today on A NEW BEGINNING, Pastor Greg Laurie takes us to important counsel from the Sermon on the Mount—the Lord’s directives to His disciples on matters of faith, love and harmony. Listen on...

Time to Take Out the Trash | When Your Burdens Pile Up

11/25/2022
Driving instructors often tell their students to look ahead on the road—don’t focus on the mailbox coming up on the right, or the approaching car on the left. If you focus on those dangers, you tend to steer that direction. On a spiritual level, we find similar advice in the Lord’s Sermon on the Mount. And today on A NEW BEGINNING, Pastor Greg Laurie highlights this time-tested counsel Jesus gives us about the worries and cares that keep us from focusing where we should: on Him. Listen on...

Time to Take Out the Trash | Truths About Suffering

11/22/2022
The Lord tells us to cast all our cares upon Him, for He cares for us. It’s like we’ve come out of a department store with bags full of merchandise, and it’s hard to navigate our way through the parking lot. We drop this bag, then we drop that bag. We might even hear the sound of broken glass. The Lord shows up with a cart and says, I’ll take ‘em from here.

Spicy Truths for a Bland Culture | Sunday Message (with Jonathan Laurie)

11/20/2022
The Bible tells us “faith without good deeds is useless” (James 2:20). We should not only be talk but action when it comes to our faith, and guest speaker Pastor Jonathan Laurie’s reminding us of that in this Sunday episode. Notes James is stating that merely saying you have faith does not mean you have it. The sin of commission is knowing what is wrong and doing it anyway. The sin of omission is knowing what is right and not doing it. 1. Dead Faith. “For God so loved the world that He...

Chemistry majors know that liquids can be adhesive or cohesive. Some liquids stick to other things, while others cling together. If you’ve broken a mercury thermometer and seen the little beads of mercury ball-up together, you’ve seen cohesion. Well, when impure thoughts come at us, do we let them stick inside our minds . . . or do we repel them and cling to what we know is right?

Think persecution doesn’t happen today? More than a dozen Christians die for their faith each day around the world.

Maybe you remember . . . there was an old TV commercial for potato chips that said, “Bet you can’t eat just one.” And they were right.

They expect a serious, somber look of concern and stillness. But Christians should be the happiest people on the planet!
