A New Beginning
Greg Laurie
Because of the deluge of robocalls we all get, if an unfamiliar number pops up on the phone, many people just don’t answer. Who wants those calls? Do we feel like we’re an unfamiliar number popping up God’s phone when we call on Him in prayer? Do we wonder if He’ll pick up the phone? Today on A NEW BEGINNING, Pastor Greg Laurie points out that God not only answers the phone, He answers our requests. We’re not an unfamiliar number at all. We’re family.

If we are taken to court, we certainly have a responsibility and a right to protect ourselves. But too many civil cases involve Christians, in clear violation of the New Testament. In this message from 1 Corinthians 6, Pastor Lutzer teaches three reasons Christians shouldn’t sue each other. So why is our nation so quick to settle disputes via lawsuits?

In this tumultuous world, peace seems to be a distant and far-fetched idea. Until we are right with God, we will be troublemakers and not peacemakers. In this message, Adrian Rogers reveals the priority of peacemaking and the hope of reconciliation.
A New Beginning
Greg Laurie
To borrow from Mark Twain, “Bad news can travel halfway around the world, while good news is still putting on its shoes.” When an influential believer falls into sin, it seems like we hear about it at the speed of light. But how do we reach out to someone who’s helped us, when they’re the ones who need help? Pastor Greg Laurie answers that question today on A NEW BEGINNING. We’re considering a story about Noah in the Book of Genesis. This godly man sinned. But we can learn from this biblical account.

So many of us spend so little time thinking about the Lord during the day, and yet we want to live with Him forever. God’s Word has a bottomless supply of insights for life, but social media captures so much more of most people’s attention. Well today on A NEW BEGINNING, as Pastor Greg Laurie continues our Genesis series, we’ll see how Noah remembered the Lord—it was his priority—after reaching dry land following the Flood. We’ll learn a number of principles from following the life of this great patriarch!

Julie Bagamary never set out to be a foster parent, but she felt God’s call to help needy children. She and her husband, Randy, provided a safe and loving home for lots of children in the foster care system. But many more Christian families are needed – to become foster parents, or to encourage and support other foster families.
