The Gospel for Busy People: The Perfect Example

5/17/2021
It’s never a mistake to follow Jesus’ example. In fact, that’s implied in the definition of “follower” or “disciple.” We’re walking in the footsteps of Jesus. And today on A New Beginning, Pastor Greg Laurie takes us to the dramatic moment when Jesus had a confrontation with the Devil himself. It was the moment the Savior of our souls crossed paths with the accuser of the brethren. But Jesus chose to make it a teaching moment for all of us as believers who encounter the scourge of...

Just Do It: Showing New Believers How to Follow the Lord

5/13/2021
God has given each of us a job. It’s an important job. But we probably spend a lot more time at the job that’s printed on our business card than engaged in the job God has given us.

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.
