So What?
Lon Solomon
by Lon Solomon
A New Beginning
Greg Laurie
Sometimes it is easy to forget that the people God chose as Jesus’ parents were young and, in many ways, unprepared. Yet Mary and Joseph trusted in God’s plan and were faithful. 
Moody Church Hour
Erwin Lutzer
In a world of increasing chaos, people yearn to hold onto what is sure. The Christmas season reminds us that Jesus was born in Bethlehem to save the world. His entrance was announced through an angel to a young Jewish maiden over two thousand years ago. But you may have experienced a cynicism in yourself or others about the claim that Jesus is the “Son of God.” Yet even Jesus Himself claimed this unique and lofty title. In this message, you’ll unpack the phrase that gives the world a sure hope.  Click here to listen (Duration 54:30)

A New Beginning
Greg Laurie
According to one survey, only 5% of people read owners’ manuals. Maybe that’s why one lady called Kitchen Aid to ask which was the best spin cycle in her clothes washer for drying her lettuce. And then wanted to know why her clothes were turning green. Well, we have an owner’s manual for life – the Bible. But so many leave it on the shelf. Today on A NEW BEGINNING, Pastor Greg Laurie helps us recognize the Bible for what it is – it’s a book that gives the prescription for life.
Running to Win
Erwin Lutzer
Because you are created in the image of God, you need a sense of dignity, a feeling that you have value in the universe. You might have counted on others’ opinions or what you do for your worth. But without God, life is confusing and empty. Just like Eve took the bite of fruit to be “like God,” any sin or pride leads to horrific results with eternal consequences. In this message, you’ll find true worth through God’s grace that lifts the lowly.  Click here to listen (Duration 25:02)

Ever been so hungry you felt weak? Not just hunger pangs, not just in a “hangry” mood. You actually felt sluggish and powerless. Food is at the top of your mind. Well, we can start to feel weak spiritually . . . but so many times our spiritual food ISN’T at the top of our minds. Today on A NEW BEGINNING, Pastor Greg Laurie points out just what God’s Word does for the weary traveler on the road of life. We’ll see it gives us actual power for living. And we shouldn’t deprive ourselves.

A New Beginning
Greg Laurie
When people hear what Jesus has done for us, they’ll see what Jesus can do for them. That’s the essence of sharing the Gospel. But what HAS Jesus done for us? If we’ve lost sight of how our life has changed, it may be time to for some soul searching before we go out soul winning. Today on A NEW BEGINNING, Pastor Greg Laurie helps us reignite the passion in our hearts, and ignite our afterburners in our efforts to share Christ with those who need to meet Him. Today’s study is from the series called Refresh.
