Breaking the Grip

Pete Briscoe

If you live and breathe, you struggle with temptation. Sometimes you resist, but often you give in and feel guilty. You probably berate yourself for not having enough willpower, or maybe you decide it's not worth fighting anymore since you've failed again and again. We forget who we are in Christ! 

As Pete teaches in this series on sin, when we become believers, sin loses its power over us because we're new creations in Christ. What we need to do is trust that promise, believe it, and live in it. Pete's teaching is blunt and candid, but it's also filled with hope. There's hope because you can have victory over even your most difficult temptation, and if you fail, God has offered you a way back.

Messages From This Series:

  1. 1. The Secret Weapon to Resist Temptation

    Pete Briscoe

    Feelings are fleeting. The number of divorces today is evidence of that. In fact, so many of the temptations that trip us up are a result of giving in to feelings—of bitterness, pleasure, power, greed. Feelings can take us down! 

    Pete explains the reason we struggle with sin: We don't "feel" like we've died to sin, so we don't live that way. However, the Bible is clear that once we are believers, we are new creations in Christ and sin goes against our new nature. 

    It's our choice... we can give in to sin if we choose, but it no longer has power to force us to yield. What temptation do you wrestle with? Listen to Pete's serious but uplifting message on how to face it and gain victory over it.

  2. 2. The Road Back from Sin

    Pete Briscoe

    You've messed up again. It isn't the first time and it probably won't be the last time. You gave in to some temptation in your life and now you have to make a choice—how do you respond?  

    The Bible says if you are a believer, your sin has already been forgiven and forgotten by God because Jesus took your sin and nailed it to the cross. Even though sin doesn't sever your relationship with God, it does affect it, creating strain and distance. 

    In this message, Pete Briscoe teaches what to do after you've sinned to right your relationship with God and release the guilt by replacing it with His peace.
