Finding Freedom in Your Finances

Pete Briscoe

From our early teens, we are the target of credit card companies that dangle the carrot of getting whatever we want, right now, with the simple use of a plastic card. We are lured into believing the lie that we're "missing out" by not having "things" and that "things" will bring us contentment.

In this series, Pete Briscoe unpacks Scripture and sheds light on why so many of us struggle with finances.

Finding Freedom in Your Finances will help release you from the often unconscious pursuit of material things and show you how to find true financial contentment.


Messages From This Series:

  1. 1. Where There Is Debt, There Is Slavery

    Pete Briscoe

    No one in their right mind would willingly walk into a state of slavery. Yet, that's what millions of us do when we decide to "buy money" in order to possess things we can't afford. So where does this feeling of need and entitlement come from? 

    Pete Briscoe challenges how many believers define being blessed and teaches on the role Christ plays in finding all that we need.

    Scripture:  Deuteronomy 6 , Romans 13

  2. 2. The One Big Financial Lie

    Pete Briscoe

    Do you feel like you're "missing out" in life because you don't have a home or apartment, vehicle, or the latest technology toy? This powerful lie has been used from the beginning of time. Remember how the serpent told Adam and Eve they were "missing out" by not eating from the Tree of Knowledge?

    The promise behind the lie is a lie itself! And people in the Bible fell for this lie just as we do today. Pete Briscoe shows us our only defense from our wants and how to find the fulfillment we seek.

    Scripture:  Genesis 2:8 - 3:6

  3. 3. Debt’s Kryptonite Is Contentment

    Pete Briscoe

    Do you need help defeating the downward spiral of debt? God doesn't want you obsessing like a child in a candy store, wondering what to buy to bring you that next 30 minutes of satisfaction. He wants you to find your satisfaction in Jesus! Remember that God calls us in Hebrews 13:5 to keep our lives free from the love of money and to be content.

    If you're struggling with wants and debt, could it be that what you're really struggling with is to find your purpose, peace, and contentment in Jesus? Pete Briscoe takes a look at this in his message.

    Scripture:  1 Timothy 6:6 - 6:11 , Hebrews 13:5

  4. 4. Let Your Finances Be a Blessing

    Pete Briscoe

    We might never have known the beautiful story of the Good Samaritan if he was not a man of financial means. He helped the man who was lying on the side of the road, who was beaten by robbers, when no one else would. The Good Samaritan had the means to pay for the man's food and lodging while he rested and healed. Do you have the financial means to help others in need?

    In this message, Pete Briscoe focuses on God's teaching that giving is eternal in nature and it never fades. And he reminds us that when God blesses us financially, He offers us the opportunity for great joy if we in turn bless others. 

    Scripture:  Acts 20:35 , Matthew 6:19 - 6:21
