In this Sunday morning message, Pastor Greg Laurie says that there’s no standing still in the Christian life. We must move forward and grow, and in “The Golden Key to Spiritual Growth,” Pastor Greg tells us how. Notes Why do some succeed and others fail as Christians? Answer: Because they choose to. By not choosing spiritual growth, they are in effect, choosing spiritual decline. Read: Mark 4:1–9, 13–19 The job of the sower is to just throw the seed out far and wide. The only way to tell if someone is really a Christian is through the test of time. A prodigal will always return home. Highway Hearers  Rocky-Road Hearers “Christianity has not been tried and found wanting; it has been found difficult and not tried.” —G.K. Chesterton  It’s possible they have built their faith on the wrong foundation. It could be due to persecution. Every real Christian will be persecuted in some way! Thorny Hearers “The second best is often the worst enemy of the best.” A thorn or weed is anything that crowds Jesus out of our lives. Faithful Hearers The golden key to spiritual growth is this . . . how you hear the Word of God. Hearing and obeying the Word . . . that is the golden key of spiritual growth.

In this episode, we visit a classic conversation between Pastor Greg Laurie and Randy Alcorn. Their discussion centers on how pain, suffering, and the promise of Heaven shapes the believer’s worldview here on earth.  Pastor Greg starts off with two major questions: Why is there suffering? Why do Christians have to suffer? As Randy explains, “[God] didn’t make the world with all of this suffering. He made it different than that. Then we made some choices—sin—that brought suffering into the world. Now we are living with the consequences. The great thing is, according to the Bible, God doesn’t give up. He is still sovereign. He is still in control.” Listen to this fruitful discussion about a necessary topic and be encouraged in your faith! Randy Alcorn is a New York Times bestselling author of more than 50 books, including Heaven. He is the founder and director of Eternal Perspective Ministries, a nonprofit organization dedicated to teaching biblical truth and drawing attention to the needy and how to help them. --- Learn more about Greg Laurie and Harvest Ministries at harvest.org This podcast is supported by the generosity of our Harvest Partners.Support the show: https://harvest.org/donate/See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
