Encore | Made Man Makes Right: An Interview with Michael Franzese

6/19/2021
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...

What the Resurrection of Jesus Means to You: The Pivot Point of Our Life

6/18/2021
The Resurrection is a pivot point for the entire Christian faith. Paul told the Corinthian church, “If there is no resurrection of the dead, then not even Christ has been raised. And if Christ has not been raised, our preaching is useless and so is your faith.” Thankfully, he then said, “But Christ has indeed been raised from the dead.” And today on A New Beginning, Pastor Greg Laurie points out how the Resurrection provides the power we need to break through the barriers and live the...

What the Resurrection of Jesus Means to You: Paying the Price We Can’t Pay

6/17/2021
Most of us are wired to look for a good deal. We like to exchange something of lesser value for something of greater value. Well, on a spiritual level, Jesus offers us an arrangement that’s too good to refuse. We owed a debt we couldn’t pay, but Jesus stepped in and paid a debt He didn’t owe. Today on A New Beginning, Pastor Greg Laurie helps us appreciate the price paid at Calvary. But even more remarkably: after Jesus died for our sins, He rose again.

What the Death of Jesus Means to You: Enduring Pain on Our Behalf

6/16/2021
For the past month, we’ve studying the rich writings of the Gospel of Mark. Mark weaves together a vivid narrative of the life of Jesus . . . and certainly the most vivid is his description of the end of Jesus’ life and ministry. These events were choreographed by the Father from the beginning of time, but the events were surprising to a First Century citizen seeing it in real time. Today on A New Beginning, Pastor Greg Laurie presents his message, What the Death of Jesus Means to You. View...

What the Death of Jesus Means to You: The Ultimate Sacrifice

6/15/2021
There are very few events of the past that we could rightfully say changed the course of human history. The invention of sliced bread? People often say it’s the greatest thing since sliced bread. No. Some might say air travel . . . or telecommunications . . . or penicillin. Today on A New Beginning, Pastor Greg Laurie takes us to the very moment when our sins were paid in full. It’s the singular event that had ETERNAL consequences. And we’ll consider what that event means for us. View and...

A Second Chance in Life: Getting Back Up

6/14/2021
Golfers know the meaning of the world “mulligan.” Bad golfers know it very well. A mulligan is a do-over. “Take that swing over again, you’re good.” Well, thankfully the Lord allows mulligans in the spiritual life. “If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive our sins...” Today on A New Beginning, Pastor Greg Laurie helps us follow the biblical account of a certain spiritual failure. We’ll see what it was that led to the sin, and how that sin was forgiven and fellowship...

The Biblical Worldview on Self-Defense and Retaliation | Classic Message

6/12/2021
Pastor Greg Laurie tackles a perennially debated issue: How should Christians approach the topic of self-defense. How do we “turn the other cheek,” and how should we think about law-enforcement? Teaching from Matthew 5 and the Sermon on the Mount, Pastor Greg gives us a balanced view of all these topics. There is a place for self-defense. You have your rights as an American citizen. God has the military and the police force. With that in mind, what did Jesus mean when He said, “But whoever...

A Second Chance in Life: God’s Beautiful Masterpiece

6/11/2021
Ever looked at the social media posts of a friend and think, “Wow, they live a pretty good life.” Someone has pointed out we should never compare someone else’s highlight reel, to our blooper reel. We live out our blooper reel everyday, don’t we? We see the flubs, the fumbles, the gaffes, and the goofs up close. But today on A New Beginning, Pastor Greg Laurie points out that God sees beyond the blooper, to the future. Today, a good example of how God can rewrite our story. View and...

The Best Choice: Choosing the Lord Over Worldly Desires

6/10/2021
Ever been that one person at your table in a restaurant that takes a pass on dessert? Everybody’s ordering salted caramel this and double chocolate that, and they look at you like you have a second nose growing out of the side of your head! “What’s wrong with you!?” But sometimes we have to pass up the attractive things for the best things. And today on A New Beginning, Pastor Greg Laurie helps us chart a course for a richer, more fulfilling walk with the Lord, in spite of other things that...

The Best Choice: Our Devotion to Christ

6/9/2021
If the gift someone gives you is modest, your expression of thanks can likewise be modest. When the gift is extraordinary, a modern etiquette expert says, “Keep the level of the thank you near the level of kindness you received.” Well today on A New Beginning, Pastor Greg Laurie takes us to a memorable moment in Jesus’ ministry when gratitude was extended Him at such a generous level, it drew attention and even criticism from the disciples. But Pastor Greg explains that Jesus commended Mary....

Only Jesus!: The Way the Truth and the Life

6/8/2021
There’s nothing like driving a wide vehicle on a narrow road to make you sweat. Things get tight ... tight ... tighter still ... and you suck in your breath...! C’mon, like that’s going to make your vehicle thinner. Ever done that? But narrow roads have to be taken seriously. And the Bible describes the narrow road that leads to heaven. Today on A New Beginning, Pastor Greg Laurie points out that there are few who find it . . . it’s only found through a relationship with Christ. View and...

Only Jesus!: Beholding the Glory of God

6/7/2021
We’ve all seen things we’ll never forget. Maybe we saw Old Faithful in Yellowstone. Or we stood on the rim of the Grand Canyon. Or maybe it was watching our child take their first steps. But nothing on earth could have prepared these certain onlookers for the spectacle they were about to see. Today on A New Beginning, as Pastor Greg Laurie takes us to the Transfiguration of Jesus, we’ll see it left them speechless. Well, should have left them speechless – but one of them spoke anyway.

Lost in Translation: What It Means to Bear Our Cross

6/4/2021
So much of life is determined by our focus. Do we focus on career more than family, or family more than career? Do we focus more on pursuing goals, or enjoying the journey? Some focus on happiness . . . it’s their most important pursuit in life. And yet happiness isn’t found through direct pursuit.

Everyone Needs Jesus: The Lord Is Always Within Reach

5/31/2021
We all need a touch from the Lord. And the Lord is ready to reach out. But too often, we’re touched, and jostled, and pummeled by the world around us . . . and we can’t seem to climb out from under the dog-pile to feel the touch of the Lord.

Good encouragement is ahead. View and...
