Time to Take Out the Trash: Where Our Focus Should Be

1/17/2022
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. View and...

Time to Take Out the Trash: Leaving Our Burdens with The Lord

1/14/2022
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. Today on A New Beginning, Pastor Greg Laurie points out how we can leave our burdens with the Lord. He’ll know what to do with them....

Let’s Talk About Heaven: Our Eternal Home

1/13/2022
They say, in any major city these days, there are cameras watching you . . . as you walk, as you drive. Security cameras in front of a market, or built into a nearby ATM. Maybe a webcam on the top of a building or someone’s video doorbell. What about our friends and loved ones in heaven? Are they watching what’s going on here on earth? Pastor Greg Laurie addresses that question and several others today on A NEW BEGINNING as he presents a glimpse of life inside our eternal home. View and...

Let's Talk About Heaven: Overwhelming Joy

1/12/2022
Sometimes, we just can’t hold back the joy. When our favorite sports team wins the big game. When our young child takes his first steps. When you hear the words, “You may kiss your bride.” Well, when we get to heaven, we just may not be able to hold ourselves back from worship. Today on A New Beginning, Pastor Greg Laurie helps us see what we’ll be doing in heaven . . . and what things will be different from this life, and what things will largely be the same. It’s one of our most requested...

Let’s Talk About Heaven: New and Improved

1/11/2022
Ever fallen for that ruse at the supermarket? You see a package marked new & improved and so you buy it. Then you get it home and taste it and . . . and . . . It isn’t new or improved! Well, as believers, there’ll come a time when we’re new and improved. For real. Today on A New Beginning, Pastor Greg Laurie points out just how we’ll change personally when we get to heaven.

Let’s Talk About Heaven: Keep Your Mind on Things Above

1/10/2022
Imagine sitting down for a fine meal. It may be the finest meal you’ve ever experienced. The service is first class. The chef is world-renowned. His culinary creations will leave you speechless.

Today on A New Beginning, Pastor Greg Laurie points out the folly of being so enamored with the world we miss eternity. Listen on harvest.org. --- Learn more and...

Angels and Demons: Keeping Your Guard Up

1/5/2022
Ever been the target of a scam? Many of us have, some without even realizing it. None of the scammers admit they’re trying to rip you off. They play upon your fear... or your kindness. They find a weakness or a vulnerability. Satan is like that, only he’s been practicing a lot longer. And today on A New Beginning, Pastor Greg Laurie warns us about his tactics and strategies. We’re each in his crosshairs, but as believers we’re under the protection of The Cross Listen on harvest.org. ---...

Angels and Demons: The Truth About Angelic Beings

1/4/2022
Angels, unfortunately, suffer from a good deal of bad press. Fake news. Inaccurate reporting. They’re not plump little babies sitting on clouds playing harps.

Pastor Greg Laurie has the answer today on A New Beginning directly from God’s Word, in one of the most requested messages of the past year.

God’s Plan for Sex & Marriage: Selflessness

Why Does God Allow Temptation in the Life of the Believer?: Power in Christ

12/29/2021
Satan is the king of the spiritual ambush. He lures us in, saying “no one will ever know.” And after we’ve sinned, he tells us “I can’t believe what you’ve done. Everyone’s gonna find out.” How can we stand against such an unscrupulous foe? Today on A New Beginning, Pastor Greg Laurie points out we stand against our enemy in the power of God and the authority of His Word.

Why Does God Allow Temptation in the Life of the Believer?: Being Honest With Ourselves

12/28/2021
Drivers have told their car insurance companies some doozies. “Coming home I drove into the wrong house and collided with a tree I don't have.” “My car was legally parked as it backed into another vehicle.” “As I approached an intersection a sign suddenly appeared in a place where no stop sign had ever appeared before.” It’s similar to the way we try to rationalize our sin before God.
