Greg Laurie is one of the few Pastors left that you can mention and not have people turned off. His message is ever clear, and Jesus never fails to be at the centre of it. At Harvest America 2018 it was no different as tens of thousands of people flocked to the AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, Sunday evening. The night included gospel music and the Southern California Pastor invited the crowd to respond to the Gospel.
Pastor Laurie who leads Harvest Christian Fellowship, shared about his difficult childhood, and how he got into drugs and alcohol.
“I was going downhill fast … I was too cynical, too hard … but Christ changed my life one day. I didn’t plan on it, but it happened,” he said.
No matter who you are or what you have done, you are qualified to be a part of God’s family.❤❤

In today’s culture, he continued, people think they can be happy only if they get rich and famous. But, he added, the “bottom line” is that “fame and wealth, possessions, all the things this world has to offer … will not make you happy.”
In one week alone, he said, two celebrities — television personality Anthony Bourdain and fashion icon Kate Spade — took their own lives. Last year, 45,000 Americans took their lives, he added.
“I’m not here tonight to talk to you about religion. I’m here to talk to you about a relationship, a friendship, with God,” Pastor Laurie told the crowd.
