    A Second Chance in Life: Getting Back Up

    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 restored.

    The Refreshing Power of Prayer | Sunday Message

    God gives us prayer for our own good. The question is: Why don’t we pray more often? In this podcast episode, “The Refreshing Power of Prayer,” Pastor Greg Laurie gives us guidance on praying with passion and persistence from Matthew 20. It’s the first message in Refresh: What Every Christian Needs to Know, a brand-new series from Pastor Greg. Notes “Times of refreshment come from the presence of the Lord.” —Acts 3:19 You will be spiritually refreshed when you read and study the Bible. You will be spiritually refreshed when you think of others more than yourself. You will be spiritually refreshed when you help others. How can you be spiritually refreshed? Spend time in God’s presence, study His Word, be generous, and serve others. We don’t pray more because we don’t think we have the time. “One of the great uses of Twitter and Facebook will be to prove at that Last Day that prayerlessness was not from lack of time.” We don’t pray more because we don’t think prayer is that important. We don’t pray more because we think that prayer doesn’t really work. The primary objective of prayer is to align myself with the will of God. Sometimes God says, “No.” Sometimes God says, “Slow.” Sometimes God says, “Go.”   In a time of crisis they prayed, and so should we. They prayed with passion and persistence, and so should we. Their prayer was heard by Jesus.  Unconfessed sin can hinder our prayers. “Search me, O God, and know my heart! Try me and know my thoughts! And see if there be any wicked way in me.” —Psalm 139:23–24 Idols in our heart can hinder our prayers. Unforgiveness in our heart can hinder our prayers. Unbelief can hinder our prayers. Prayer is the privilege of the child of God. Scripture Referenced Psalm 19:7 Proverbs 11:25 Proverbs 25:13 2 Peter 1:13 Philippians 4:6 Psalm 8:3–4 Psalm 50:15 James 4:2 Ephesians 6:18 Jeremiah 29:13 Isaiah 59:1–2 Psalm 66:18 Ezekiel 14:3 Mark 11:25 James 1:5–7 --- Learn more about Greg Laurie and Harvest Ministries at harvest.org.

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

    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 slaps you on your right cheek, turn the other to him also. … And whoever compels you to go one mile, go with him two” (Matthew 5:39, 41 NKJV)? Jesus was giving specific advice for when Christians are persecuted. These are not mechanical rules; they are principles for meeting the personal wrongs that come to those who follow Him. There are times that, for the sake of God’s kingdom and the soul of a person, we take the hit or turn the other cheek or go the extra mile. Read more on this subject in Pastor Greg’s full article. This message was originally preached at Harvest Christian Fellowship on May 30, 2010. --- Learn more about Greg Laurie and Harvest Ministries at harvest.org.
