Sunday Message: A Second Chance in Life

We can’t change the past, but as Pastor Greg Laurie shares in this Sunday morning episode, Jesus can take our endings and turn them into new beginnings! Listen in for much-needed encouragement from the life of the apostle Peter in Mark 14. It’s the latest in our series, The Gospel for Busy People.


We see problems, God sees solutions. We see failure, God sees potential.

We see an end and God sees a new beginning.

God can take our endings and turn them into beginnings.

Read: Mark 14:27–31 NLT

Every temptation has a way out.

“Happy is the person who patiently endures testing and temptation.” —James 1:12

God has built a wall of protection around you!

When God allows us to go through fiery trials, He has a purpose.

“If I could hear Christ praying for me in the next room I would not fear a million enemies.

Yet distance makes no difference. He is praying for me.” —Robert Murray M’Cheyne

1. Peter’s first step down was self-confidence.

Many men in Scripture fell in the area they were known to be strong in.

2. Peter’s second step down was a result of prayerlessness.

Mark 14:37–40

Prayerlessness can be as much a sin as breaking a commandment.

3. Peter fell because he trusted human efforts instead of God’s power.

Mark 14:46–47

4. Peter fell because he was warming himself at the enemy’s fire.

Mark 14:66–68

“He went in and sat with the servants to see the end.” —Matthew 26:58

5. Peter’s fifth step down was his denial.

Peter’s setback stands as an example of the fact that nobody is above falling into sin.
