How to Be Happy, Part 2 | Sunday Message

3/3/2024
Pastor Greg Laurie continues covering The Beatitudes, where we see what the actions of happy people look like. Notes: Matthew 5 The Sermon on the Mount is only for Christians Happy are the humble Happy people are "unhappy" people A happy person will be a meek person A happy person passionately desires a righteous life Read Matthew 5:7 Point #1: Happy people are merciful people Extend God's mercy toward you to others; forgiven people should be forgiving people Read Matthew 5:8 Point #2: A happy person will be a holy person Pure in heart = whole being is directed toward God. To be single (single eye), or pure in heart, means to have a single focus on Jesus Christ. Read Matthew 5:9 Point #3: A happy person will be a peacemaker If you're a Christian, you're a son or daughter of God Read: Matthew 5:10 Point #4: A happy person will be persecuted If you want to be a happy person, you're going to be a persecuted person If persecuted, rejoice (Matthew 5:12) Let persecution be for righteousness sake God can work through persecution It's not easy to be a Christian. It takes courage. But Jesus Christ is worth not only living for, but dying for. It's worth it! A relationship with God will bring you happiness. --- Learn more about Greg Laurie and Harvest Ministries at harvest.org. This podcast is supported by the generosity of our Harvest Partners.

Faith 101 | Fighting Victoriously

3/1/2024
If there’s a war raging, and someone mistakenly stumbles into the middle of it, the warriors don’t suddenly stop and say, ‘Hey, wait a minute, fellas, this guy isn’t part of it. Let’s wait ‘til he gets outta the way.’ No people who stumble into battle unaware often get caught in the crossfire. Today on A NEW BEGINNING, Pastor Greg Laurie wants to make sure that doesn’t happen to us. He points out that we’re surrounded by spiritual warfare, and we need to be prepared to fight, and fight victoriously.

A pilot said, “the basics of aviation are really quite simple.

What to Do When the Odds Are Against You | God's Provision

2/27/2024
Sometimes we may think that our effort, by itself, does count for much. Maybe we’re the only believer in our family . . . or the only Christian at work . . . or the only one in our group of friends at school. The odds are against us.

How to Be Happy, Part 1 | Sunday Message

2/25/2024
Some people look for happiness in relationships, money, or shopping. Where do you look? Hint: If it's not to God, that's the wrong place! Pastor Greg Laurie reminds us that true happiness can only be found in a relationship with our Creator. Notes: "God cannot give us happiness and peace apart from Himself because it's not there." —C. S. Lewis Happiness comes from who you know, not what you have. "...Joyful indeed are those whose God is the Lord" —Psalm 144:15 The Christian faith is a happy faith. God wants you to be happy, contrary to popular belief. Angels brought good news that brings joy (Luke 2:10). God Himself is happy. Christians will still face tragedy. God's definition of happiness is different than ours. Biblical world-view: The Bible should change the way you see things. Sermon on the Mount (Matthew 5:1). Jesus gave it to His disciples, not the multitudes; only Christians can live by this sermon. First 4 beatitudes deal with our relationship with God, the other 4 deal with our relationships with others. Blessed = happy. Read Matthew 5:2–9. Point #1: God wants you to be blessed and happy. Point #2: Happy people are humble people. Point #3: Happy people are "unhappy people." Point #4: A happy person will be a meek person. Point #5: A happy person passionately desires a righteous life. The only way to be a happy person is to know God. Not by chasing happiness, but by knowing God. --- Learn more about Greg Laurie and Harvest Ministries at harvest.org.

Give Me This Mountain | All In

2/23/2024
During Jesus’ earthly ministry, He didn’t restore sight to just one eye. He didn’t feed most of the 5,000. He didn’t calm the storm on only half the Sea of Galilee. And He didn’t give part of His life on the cross to pay for some of our sins. As someone has said, “Sin had left a crimson stain, and He didn’t wash it light pink.” Today on A NEW BEGINNING, Pastor Greg Laurie points out how Jesus gave His all . . . and the only appropriate response is from us is to give our all.

We’ve all gotten used to spam calls, right? We can sometimes see them coming. Maybe we don’t answer the phone. If we do, we have our way of ending the call as quickly as possible.

Overcoming or Overcome | Standing with the Lord

Kids learn early on the playground that if a bully is bigger than them, it’s good to have a friend who’s bigger than the bully. A bully who has met his match is no longer a threat. As the Bible says, "He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world" (1 John 4:4 NKJV). Our adversary is no match for our Almighty God. We stand in victory when we stand with the Lord!
