If you want to come out on top in 2016, you’re going to have to work for it. Pastor Rick shares his wisdom on how to discern which battles matter in your life and how to tackle them. You will learn about the three major battles you’ll face and the secret weapons you have to help you win.

Peace through Reconciling with Others
How can we have peace on earth when our newspapers are riddled with stories that indicate a complete lack of peace in our society?

Pastor Derwin Gray, lead pastor of Transformation Church and author of The HD Leader, teaches how to bring peace through reconciling with others. You will learn how the gospel can turn enemies into friends and how you can be transformed into a peacemaker — becoming part of the process to bring healing and reconciliation.

Learning To Be Both Fast & Slow
Every event in history has an element of timing to it. From sports to business to the entertainment industry, success is all a matter of timing. At Saddleback, we walk in the spirit and leave it up to God’s timing. We don’t try to create the event or opportunity, we wait to see what God is doing and go from there. There is a rhythm to life, and the successful individual knows how to slow down or speed up according to that rhythm. In Learning To Be Both Fast and Slow, Pastor Rick Warren continues his Toolbox For Life series and gives biblical examples of when God wants you to move with urgency and when he wants you to act slowly.

Knowing What Matters Most
Not everything in life is worth doing. The most successful people have mastered the skill of selection — knowing what’s important and what’s not.

Ultimately, your values affect not only your stress level and success, but also your salvation.

Authority: Who Determines Right and Wrong?
How do we determine the direction for our morality, deciding what is right or wrong? John Stonestreet of the Chuck Colson Center for Christian Worldview joins us at Saddleback Church, bringing his insight into The Great Questions of Life series. In this message, John addresses how to determine what is right or wrong in a society with numerous competing voices of authority. He breaks down the Bible into four chapters — creation, fall, redemption, and restoration — demonstrating how God’s authority, not our own, provides a more accurate compass to guide our moral values.

Destiny: Where Am I Going?
Where you think you are going after this life directly affects your behavior and attitude while you are still on earth. Despite all the “near death experience” stories out there, only one man really knows what heaven's actually like—Jesus Christ. Jesus talked a lot about heaven because he wanted us to be with him for eternity and reward us. He even laid down his life to make that possible. In this message, Pastor Tom Holladay explores four things Jesus taught about destiny and presents two important decisions for us to make today about heaven.

Identity/Intentionality: What is my Purpose?
Everybody needs meaning, purpose, and identity. Sadly, most people don’t often think about these things. Approaching life with a “you only live once” attitude and not taking the time to live with purpose is a tragic mistake. Among the various families of religious faith, we find that a biblical worldview is unique in the fact that your calling is equivalent to service and becoming who God created you to be. In this message, Os Guinness, PhD, talks about God’s calling for each of us by exploring two of Jesus’ most famous parables about stewardship.

Originality: Where Did I Come From?
Were you a cosmic accident or created by a living and loving God? This question has been asked for centuries by every religion on earth. Your origin matters because where you come from determines your purpose in life. Every religion asks the same three questions in relationship to your origin: why are you here, what went wrong, and how can you fix it? Since God is your creator, you have a purpose in life. You were created for the best type of freedom—living out God’s design for your life. In his message, Originality: Where Did I Come From, Sean McDowell, PhD talks about how Christianity and Darwinism differ in their origin stories and gives two pieces of scientific evidence in support of intelligent design.

The Word Of Trust
Who do you cry out to when things are going badly? As he was about to die on the cross, Jesus shouted out, “Father, I entrust my spirit into your hands!” He was so confident in his Father that he raised his voice, despite the agonizing pain he was suffering on the cross. In that moment, Jesus became the example of not only how to live, but how to die. God can be fully trusted—his hands are big enough to bless you, and he will always hold on to you! In the final message of The Seven Greatest Words of Love series, Pastor Rick Warren shares four truths to remember about God in your darkest hour.

The Word of Victory!
Do you ever find yourself saying, “I need more time” or “I can’t seem to get it all done?” We’ve all said that. We’ll all have unfinished business when our time on earth ends. It’s just a fact! However, there is one person in all of history who finished all of his tasks before his death — Jesus Christ. As Jesus died on the cross, he yelled the three most important words in history when he declared, “It is finished!” But what exactly did he finish? The answer to that question makes up the basics of the Christian faith and the Gospel. In this message, Pastor Rick Warren breaks down the five things that Jesus finished on the cross as he continues the series The Seven Greatest Words of Love.

The Word Of Humanity
When Jesus said, “I am thirsty” as he hung on the cross, he showed his humanity as he prepared to die for our sins. As Christians, when we thirst, we are actually longing for something that only God can provide—the nourishment of his Word. We have all heard people we know say things like, “I am unfulfilled” or “my life lacks meaning.” When we hear declarations like that, it means those people are spiritually thirsty. In Part Five of the series “The Seven Greatest Words of Love,” Pastor Rick Warren teaches on “The Word of Humanity.” In this message, he explains the meaning of Jesus’ thirst, why others thirst, and how we can go about satisfying our own spiritual thirst.

What does the term “substitute” mean to you? You probably think of a substitute teacher or substitute ingredient. If you’re a Christian, it means something far more serious. Jesus died for your sins—the ones you have already committed and any future sins you will commit. In effect, he was a substitute for you when he hung on the cross. We can all rejoice in the fact that God loved us so much that he sent Jesus to pay the ultimate price on our behalf. In this message, Pastor Rick Warren talks about the Word of Substitution as he continues the series The Seven Greatest Words of Love.

The Word Of Love
What’s the single most important thing Christians can learn while on earth? It’s to love like Jesus loved us. If we fail to learn how to love, we miss out on the purpose of life. However, we can learn to love like Jesus only if we have the power of God helping us. It’s humanly impossible to love like Jesus without that power. In this message called ”The Word of Love,” Pastor Rick Warren details the four things we must do to be able to love like Jesus.

We live in a world that has 24/7 access to the news — from tweets and websites to TV and radio, breaking headlines are everywhere. Unfortunately, that news is predominately negative. The best news that ever happened occurred 2,000 years ago with the arrival of Jesus Christ. All who have made that change to accept him are changed forever. We are set free from sin, past failures, and addiction. We are free from fear, worry, and eternal condemnation. Christ does not define us by our past failures. He defines us with his grace, which he paid for with his life. Pastor Samuel Rodriguez speaks about being free through Christ in Part Two of The Best News I’ve Ever Heard.

Children are a gift to parents, and let’s not forget a lot of work! Raising them can be a blessing but also a struggle at times. Unfortunately, dads don’t always get the credit they deserve when it comes to being a leader in the family. Being a father isn’t easy, and for some, it is difficult to look beyond our mistakes in parenting. In fact, Father’s Day often triggers mixed emotions toward our own father figures and a painful time of past failures. Whether or not you have children, we can all look to the perfect heavenly Father for guidance on parenting. In this message, Pastor Tom Kang discusses raising the bar on parenting.

Daring To Wait On God (Outline)
No one ever said that waiting is easy. From that first gift under the Christmas tree to the family vacation marked on the calendar, we all face the challenge of waiting for that "next big thing" to be revealed. In an age of smart phones and instant communication, waiting has become even harder. But waiting is an important part of life. You may be waiting on God to heal your disease, bring you employment, or answer your prayer. Sometimes though, God has to work on us before he works on our proble

Daring To Be Generous
There are over 2,100 times the word “give” is in the Bible. You might think “love” would be referenced more, but it’s only used around 700 times. Why? Because you can’t truly love without giving. You can give without loving, but the essence of loving is giving. Whether that be giving your talent, time, energy, or a multitude of other gifts, generosity is the foundation of love. If you want to experience God’s blessings in your life, you must have integrity, humility, and a generous heart. In this sermon, Pastor Rick teaches about 12 promises and benefits of generosity.

Daring To Grow A Deep Soul
What kinds of things do you want from this life? Some people will say, “A desire to be loved.” Others will say, “To be a part of something.” Many will say, “To leave a legacy.” There is nothing wrong with those goals or daring to dream big. When people list their goals, very few will say something like, “I want to grow a deep soul.” Why is that? A soul is eternal, while other goals will come to an end on this earth. Daring to grow a deep soul is attainable by everybody. In this message, Kay Warren and her daughter Amy teach about growing a deep soul.
