God has built into us a hunger for Him ... it’s an insatiable longing that nothing else can fill. And He’s given believers a pivotal message—the Gospel message—that has the power to bring people to Him. The ingredients are there. It just needs our willingness to share that message. Are you willing to be used that way? Today on A NEW BEGINNING, Pastor Greg Laurie brings us a number of practical principles to help us share that life-giving message more effectively and confidently.

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. Well today on A NEW BEGINNING, Pastor Greg Laurie takes us to one of the most encouraging stories in the Old Testament. We’ll catch up with a military leader about to fight a battle, when God told him to send most of his army home so that God alone would get credit for the victory.

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.
What’s the best way to chart a course for a successful Christian life over the long haul? We might ask someone who’s walked that path over the long haul.

So today he offers some good perspective for all of us on the path of faith.
