What Did Jesus Say About Calamities?

Stuart Briscoe

Series: But What Did Jesus Say About It?

Why do bad things happen to good people? This is a question many people ask, particularly when we see tragedies occurring around us. In the ancient world, the general thinking was that if you were good, God would bless you in material ways for being good. So if something bad happened to you, the community would think that you had done something bad to deserve it. When Jesus was questioned about such things—whose sin caused which disasters—His response was countercultural and personal. 

In this message, Stuart helps us gain new insight on the parable of the unfruitful fig tree and shows us how to respond when calamity strikes.

Scripture: Luke 13:1 - 13:9

Fixing a Broken Marriage

Pete Briscoe

Series: Healing Broken Relationships

Oftentimes, we blame our spouse for the problems in our marriages and then set out trying to change them. However, it’s God’s job to fix our spouses, not ours. And, if we’re really honest, He probably needs to fix us, too. 

In this message, Pete Briscoe teaches on how to repair our less than perfect marriages. Surprisingly, it has more to do with us individually than with our spouses!

How to Repair Relationships

Stuart Briscoe

Series: Healing Broken Relationships

Many of us struggle to live well when we experience difficulties in our relationships. We might even live in a state of denial—shrugging our shoulders and denying individual responsibility. How do we overcome the urge to ignore tough situations? 

In this message, Stuart Briscoe encourages us to repair our relationships and takes us to the story of Joseph to learn how to heal them.

Fight for the Family

Jill Briscoe

Families have been under attack from the beginning of time, and they are under attack today. The devil, who hates families with complete disdain, works overtime to tear down every wall we rebuild. How do we overcome his opposition when we’re exhausted from the constant patch work? 

In this message, Jill Briscoe teaches from the book of Nehemiah on where to draw strength for rebuilding our family relationships.

Paul Speaks on Relationships, Part 2

Pete Briscoe

Series: Healing Broken Relationships

Do you want deep, authentic relationships with people? If you do, perhaps a paradigm shift needs to happen in your thinking. The world tells us to make a name for ourselves and to do it at whatever the cost. The problem is along the way we step on others and damage relationships. 

In this message, Pete Briscoe shows us how to think counter-culturally so that we can experience deep and meaningful relationships with others.

God's Plan for Reconciliation, Part 2

Stuart Briscoe

Series: Healing Broken Relationships

Too often we focus on issues that divide us as a people instead of the things that unify us. And when that happens, there’s the potential to stay within your collective group of like-minded people and treat others differently, maybe even judgmentally. How do you keep yourself from a judgmental worldview so that you can see people as God sees them—precious and in need of a Savior? 

In this message, Stuart Briscoe examines how the apostle Paul addresses issues that divide people. There’s only one true way to overcoming what divides us, and if we embrace it, the effects can be revolutionary.

Cultivate Contentment, Part 2

Jill Briscoe

Series: Spiritual Arts

Those of us who played organized sports in school may remember a time when the race or game was not going well, and we just wanted to give up. For many of us, it was the shouts from the sidelines that kept us going. We could hear the coach shouting, “Keep going—you can do it!” 

In the same way the coach keeps the team going, Christ keeps us going and guides us home. We just have to learn to turn everything in our lives over to Him. In this message, Jill explains how we can learn to let God “coach” us and find contentment in every circumstance.

Learn to Be Small

Jill Briscoe

Series: Spiritual Arts

What people come to mind when thinking of those who have a servant attitude? Missionaries? Pastors? Yourself? Do you think that having a humble attitude is important? The apostle Paul had a servant heart and attitude. He continually gave himself away to benefit those around him. As a result, he was able to bring many people to Christ. 

We can impact those around us just as Paul did if we learn the spiritual art of humility. In this message, Jill explains how having a self-sacrificing attitude can impact others.

Chains of Blessing, Part 2

Jill Briscoe

Series: Spiritual Arts

What do you do when you are suffering through a hard time? Many of us sulk, complain, and feel sorry for ourselves. Others put on a strong face, but when they are alone, the fear and sadness take over, and they break down. Much of the apostle Paul’s life was spent suffering—most of the time in jail. But unlike many of us, Paul was joyful no matter what his circumstance. 

This “spiritual art” of contentment was something Paul learned—and it wasn’t easy. In this message, Jill uses Paul’s life as an example of how we can learn contentment, joy, and peace of mind no matter what we are going through.

One Person at a Time

Pete Briscoe

Series: The Good Life

Most people understand the importance of love. It’s a basic tenant of most faiths, and in John 13:34, Jesus clearly instructs us to “love one another.” Love is part of the good Life that God wants us to experience.

The challenge, however, is when we think loving one another means we should love everyone. With so many people and so much need in our world, that can quickly become a vague and overwhelming ideal. How can you possibly love everyone

Thankfully, God doesn’t actually ask us to do that. In this message, Pete Briscoe walks through passages in the Gospel of John and points out the extraordinary ways in which Jesus loved people individually. He shares how you, too, can express love in an effective, meaningful way.

Scripture: John 13:34

Heart Ache, Part 2

Jill Briscoe

Series: Heart Hunger

Sometimes we think that if we could only get what we want, we would finally be happy. Solomon thought that, too. He had a “getting” obsession, never denying himself anything he wanted, and he became “greater by far than anyone in Jerusalem before [him].” 

But all these things didn’t bring Solomon the happiness he was looking for. Solomon and you and I are all trying to soothe a heart ache that can’t be cured by “things” but only by finding our purpose, the reason we were made!

Deborah | How to Fight Your Battles

Jill Briscoe

Series: The Best of 2020

Every day we fight battles: teaching our kids to clean up their toys, dealing with difficult co-workers or family members, getting society to clean up the environment. But even though these battles are big, there is an even bigger war going on—a spiritual one. While we know that God is the ultimate victor, we live every day surrounded by Satan’s armies. 

The judge and prophetess Deborah was surrounded by not only a spiritual war but a physical one! God gave her the gifts and talents she needed to complete the task He gave her. In this message from Judges, Jill shares with us Deborah’s story and shows us how we, too, can respond to God and find our roles in this great battle.

Splinters, thorns, prickers. It doesn’t matter what they are called, they hurt and get under your skin! Life in our world is filled with thorns: difficult relationships, illness, loss of loved ones, broken promises.

The Bible tells us that even the Apostle Paul and God Himself in Jesus struggled under the bite of thorns. But God does not allow thorns in our lives without providing sufficient grace to live in the prickly mess. What Satan intends to push us down often results in pushing us to our knees in front of God’s throne instead.

Jesus Cured the Sick, Part 2

Stuart Briscoe

Series: The Best of 2020

There are many instances in Scripture where Jesus cured the sick—physically and spiritually. Can we expect that same kind of healing? Why are some people healed while others are not?

These are important questions worthy of study, but another question that is equally important to ask is: Why did Jesus perform miracles in the first place? Too often we have an inaccurate understanding of why Jesus heals. We’re so desperate with our self-interests that we miss the point of his healings—the true significance.

In this message by Stuart Briscoe, we learn what Jesus was trying to illustrate with miracle healings and discover the hope we have in overcoming our troubles and ailments.

Compelled to Tell

Pete Briscoe

Series: Using Your Influence

When the apostles John and Peter healed the lame man in Acts chapter 4, it’s a beautiful picture of the healing we can receive in our souls to make us whole. And there’s only one person who can do this. Not Muhammad, not Buddha, not the Ten Commandments, not the Pope, not Marx, not Freud, not yoga, not tolerance, not enlightenment, science, or philosophy.  Only Jesus can transform us from the inside out.

In this message, Pete Briscoe teaches from Acts about how experiencing the sheer power and love of the indwelling Christ leaves us compelled to tell lost people about the beautiful, saving grace of Jesus.

The Fearful Heart

Stuart Briscoe

Series: Secrets of the Heart

Fear is not only a human response we all share as human beings, but an essential one that needs recognizing, accepting, and managing. Effectively managed fear ceases to control our actions.

The Gratitude Attitude

Stuart Briscoe

Series: The Gratitude Attitude

Thanksgiving is a characteristic of the Christian lifestyle, and lack of thanksgiving is condemned by God. The English word "thanksgiving" in the New Testament is a translation of the Greek word "eucharistia," which at its core is "charis" or grace. An understanding of grace is absolutely necessary for an appropriate response of thanksgiving. Grace and thanksgiving are inextricably bound up in each other.

Series: Better: A New and Living Way

The author of Hebrews addresses a struggle for early Jewish believers. They had difficulty focusing their eyes on Jesus because they couldn’t see past their hero, Moses. It’s understandable. They knew that Moses had the privilege of meeting with God face-to-face in the temple. 

In this message, Pete Briscoe points us beyond the temple as the meeting place with God to the indwelling Christ, where we have the privilege of meeting with Him anywhere and anytime. 

Scripture: Hebrews 3:1 - 3:6

What Happens After You Sin?

Pete Briscoe

Series: The Essence of Christian Living

As a believer, what do you think will happen if you sin? Do you fear you’ll lose your salvation or be punished by God? Do you think God will turn His back on you until you do something to make Him happy again?

Understanding the new covenant is essential in understanding how God deals with your sin—past, present, and future.

In this message based on 1 John 2:1-2, Pete Briscoe teaches about life after sin and how you can experience hope, joy, and reconciliation with God. 

Scripture: 1 John 2:1 - 2:2

Clean from Sin, Part 2

Pete Briscoe

Series: The Essence of Christian Living

After we sin, we can feel a bit grimy. Our sin sticks to us like dirt, and we can have an itching desire to scrub ourselves clean.

Some of us confess to a priest to be made clean – others talk directly to Jesus. But in either case, many of us were made to believe we must confess every sin – no matter how large or small – in order to receive Christ's forgiveness.

In this message based on 1 John 1:5-10, Pete Briscoe shakes things up by asking whether John is talking to believers in this text, or to people pretending to be believers?  Knowing which you are makes all the difference in understanding the forgiveness of your sins – past, present, and future.

Scripture: 1 John 1:5 - 1:10

Just One Thing, Part 2

Pete Briscoe

Series: The Essence of Christian Living

Jesus didn’t come to give you life—He came to give you the Life, His Life, true Life. If you lack peace and joy, and struggle with restlessness, you might be missing out on the Life that Jesus promises to give you.

In this message, Pete Briscoe teaches from 1 John to lead you to that just one thing that provides the freedom you long for and the rest you need.

Scripture: 1 John 1:1 - 1:4
