The Secret to Sharing the Gospel Effectively | The Power of the Gospel

When God wanted to share His message of love, surprisingly He chose to use people to reach people. Flawed, fallible, foible-filled people. Ahh, but the power of the message is not in us messengers, it’s built in to the message. And the boldness and direction we need is built into us by the Spirit who lives within us. Pastor Greg Laurie discusses that today on A NEW BEGINNING as he continues a message from his brand new series in Acts – a series called The Upside-Down Life.

Today

The God of Second Chances | Sunday Message

If it weren’t for second chances, we’d all be in spiritual danger. But our God is merciful and generously offers not one, not two, but multiple chances—even if it’s undeserved. Pastor Greg Laurie reveals more about this God of second chances in today's episode. Notes: Forgiveness is available for every person, no matter how far they have fallen.   David stayed close to God and wanted to honor Him. Psalm 57: 7   Read: 2 Samuel 11: 1–5   When things are going reasonably well, we often begin to lower our guard, and then the devil attacks.   David’s fall came after great spiritual success.   The sins we commit today may come back to haunt us tomorrow.   David was allowing lust to consume his life.   God has given a sexual drive to every man and woman, which is to be fulfilled in a monogamous marriage commitment.   When a man is filled with lust, it cannot be satisfied with more lust.   You don’t feed lust; you starve it!   David was sleeping when he should have been fighting.   Mark 6: 31   If we don’t come apart and rest, we will come apart spiritually.   Our greatest battles don’t necessarily come when we’re working hard; they often come when we have some leisure time on our hands and when we are bored.   “Moments of leisure are more to be dreaded than those of strenuous toil. ” —Alan Redpath   “Moments of leisure are more to be dreaded than those of strenuous toil. ” —F. B. Meyer   2 Samuel 11: 3   When deluded by sin, we do not' think clearly because sin makes us stupid!   Instead of confessing, David tried to hide his sin.   Is God putting up roadblocks in your life right now?   You might be rationalizing sin in your mind, but God has not made it easy because He loves you!   2 Samuel 11: 27   Psalm 32 describes the futility and misery of sin that is unconfessed.   Read: Psalm 32: 1–5   God will not allow His child to get away with sin.   God disciplines those He loves. Hebrews 12: 8   “I have sinned against the Lord. ” 2 Samuel 12: 13   We have ourselves to blame when we fall into sin. James 1: 14–15   There is only one correct response to being caught in sin: “I have sinned!” 2 Samuel 12: 13   Despite David’s sin, he was given a second chance in life.   Bathsheba made it into the Messianic line of Jesus Christ. Matthew 1: 6   Do you need a second chance?   You can be forgiven of all your sin right now, because Jesus died on the cross for you.

An Interview with Former Mobster, Michael Franzese

In this classic interview, Pastor Greg Laurie interviews former Colombo family underboss Michael Franzese about his testimony of coming to faith in Christ.  In his past life, Michael was one of the richest and most powerful mobsters of his day, earning tens of millions of dollars from various criminal enterprises, but this is not the most incredible thing about Michael Franzese. By God’s grace, the impossible happened in Michael’s life: he quit the mob and lived. Christ transformed him from hardened criminal to follower of Christ.  This is an amazing and encouraging story giving hope that no one is beyond Christ and His transformative power.  This interview previously aired exclusively on A New Beginning radio. *Get a special Father's Day message from Pastor Greg—plus a FREE resource to help you (or the dads you know) navigate Christian fatherhood here!* --- Learn more about Greg Laurie and Harvest Ministries at harvest.org This podcast is supported by the generosity of our Harvest Partners.

A Life Well-Lived | Fixing Your Eyes on Jesus

Remember back to your school years. You’re in class, paying attention to the teacher, but the cut-up in the front row, the class clown, starts to perform. He’s miming what the teacher is saying. You try not to look, but you can’t help yourself. Distractions are powerful, aren’t they? And they’re everywhere. Today on A NEW BEGINNING, Pastor Greg Laurie points out the importance of keeping our eyes fixed on the Author and Finisher of our faith, Jesus Christ. It’s the pathway of a life well-lived.

Honest to God | You Can't Fool God

In the movie industry, they talk about the “suspension of disbelief.” It’s all make-believe, right? But they try to make the costumes, and the special effects, and the acting so convincing that it suspends our disbelief. They hope we forget it’s fake. Or fiction, if you prefer. Today on A NEW BEGINNING, Pastor Greg Laurie points out that some people sort of act their way through life. They try to suspend our disbelief about how they’re really living. We’ll see that’s a fruitless pursuit.
