A Second Chance in Life (Book of Mark)

by Greg Laurie on Jan 10, 2021

In this webcast, Pastor Greg Laurie shares a message from Mark 14 titled “A Second Chance At Life” in our Sunday Morning series at Harvest Christian Fellowship.

Sermon Notes

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. Many are discouraged by temptation, but every temptation has a way out. “Happy is the person who patiently endures testing and temptation.” God has built a wall of protection around you! When God allows us to go through fiery trials, He has a purpose.

Application

Robert Murray M’Cheyne  once said “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.” Prayerlessness can be as much a sin as breaking a commandment.

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

  • Peter’s first step down was self-confidence.
  • Peter’s second step down was a result of prayerlessness.
  • Peter fell because he trusted human efforts instead of God’s power.
  • Peter fell because he was warming himself at the enemy’s fire.
  • Peter’s fifth step down was his denial.
