Finding God's Will for Me, Part 2

Jill Briscoe

Series: God's Will for My Life

“What is God’s will for my life?” It’s a serious question that is asked by believers of all ages facing all kinds of decisions and uncertainty. As Jill Briscoe explains, you cannot know the will of God until you find God and get to know Him personally—or at least slow down long enough for Him to find you! 

God does not intend for His will to be a mystery to us. In fact, He makes it perfectly clear in His Word. What can we learn from the stories of the Bible... from how Jesus handled certain situations? A great deal! 

Through this teaching, you’ll learn how you can know God’s will for your life and then begin to apply it in practical ways. Are you ready to surrender your plans if it means you will accomplish His?

Knowing God's Will for My Life, Part 2

Pete Briscoe

Series: God's Will for My Life

Do you ever hear people say, “God told me to do that,” and think, did He really “tell” you? You hear others claim they know God’s will for their life, but how do you really know what God wants?

We can look in Scripture and see, generally, what God wants for His followers, but what does He want for each of us individually? Maybe there’s a decision you’re grappling with now—who to marry, which college to attend, or a major career or lifestyle choice. In this message, Pete Briscoe gives clear guidance on how to hear the Holy Spirit and discover God’s best life for you.

Be Wise About the Will of God

Stuart Briscoe

Series: God's Will for My Life

Are you living for yourself or for God? That’s a great question to answer when you’re struggling to understand God’s will for your life. He really is amazingly clear about His purpose and will for the life of the believer. But finding clarity means setting yourself apart from conventional worldly thinking and sharply focusing on God’s Word.

It’s in Scripture where God tells you the purpose for your life. He has eternal work set aside since before creation for you to do—work that blesses God and others.

In this message, Stuart Briscoe invites the resistant, the negligent, and the paralyzed believers to step into a deeper understanding of God’s will—and discover daily, with joy, what it is He wants you to be and to do.

Scripture: Ephesians 5:8 - 5:20

The Holy Spirit of Prayer

Jill Briscoe

Series: God's Will for My Life

When we pray, most of us spend a lot of time praying for ourselves, our family, and our friends. Those are all good things to pray for. But there’s much more that God wants us to pray about.

Prayer allows us to interact with all three members of the Trinity at the same time and be an active participant in helping to accomplish God’s will.

In this message, Jill uses the story of the widow and her little pot of oil from the Old Testament to show us how to let the Holy Spirit guide us in our prayer life so that God’s purposes are fulfilled in the world and in our lives.

Scripture: 2 Kings 4:1 - 4:7

I Got It from Jesus

Pete Briscoe

Series: Dance Lessons

If you have friends who are not believers, they may ask how you know the Gospel is true. Paul was asked, too. Could he have misunderstood what others told him? Did he have some details wrong? No! Paul received the truth of the Gospel straight from Jesus—not from men! 

In this message from Pete Briscoe's series, Dance Lessons, he uses Paul's letter to the Galatians to teach how the Christian life starts, how we are to live it, and what living in the spirit looks like. It's not a set of rules, but a wide open door to follow Jesus!

Scripture: Galatians 1:11 - 2:10

The Good News

Pete Briscoe

Series: Dance Lessons

Martin Luther said, "Preach the Gospel to yourself every day." We need reminding sometimes! In this message from Pete's series, Dance Lessons, he turns to Paul's letters to summarize the Gospel message and apply it to everyday life. Who are you in Christ? How does His death and resurrection empower you to overcome sin, trials, and even death?

Scripture: Galatians 1:11 - 1:15

There’s Oil in Your Coffee

Pete Briscoe

Series: Dance Lessons

Galatians is different than other letters written by Paul. In every other epistle, he finds something for which to praise the young churches before giving them advice. However, he's so angry with the Galatians that he skips that section all together. Why?

In a single word—legalism. It had infected their churches, and even today, it minimizes what Jesus did on the cross and tells us we have to do something, too, to earn salvation. Listen as Pete Briscoe teaches us  how to avoid the lie of legalism and trust in Christ alone.

Scripture: Galatians 1:1 - 1:8

He Has Set Us Free

Pete Briscoe

Series: Dance Lessons

There's a story told that Abe Lincoln purchased a slave and immediately told her she was free when they walked away. She began to question him: "Free to think what I want? Free to go where I want to go?" When he answered, "Yes," she replied, "Then I think I'll go with you."

Do we really understand that we are completely, joyously free, through Christ? And if we do, why do we continue to act like we're not?

Scripture: Galatians 5:1 , Luke 4:14 - 4:20

Free to Dance

Pete Briscoe

Series: Dance Lessons

Is Jesus your drill sergeant or your dance instructor? Are you marching along, trying to be good enough, trying to keep in step with everyone else? Jesus is calling you out of the march and into a dance with Him—sometimes messy, sometimes uncoordinated, but always focused on Christ, moved by Life with Him.

In this message, Pete Briscoe invites us to stop marching, stop watching the dance from the sidelines, and start dancing with life and joy!

Scripture: Colossians 2:6 - 2:10 , Jeremiah 31:13 - 31:14

Fight for the Family

Jill Briscoe

Series: Fight for the Family

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.

With so many things begging for your attention this time of year, it’s easy to miss out on the significance of Christ’s coming.

He Came to Give Us Life, Part 2

Jill Briscoe

Series: He Came to Give Us Life

“I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.” John 10:10

Jesus did not say, “Come to me and I'll fill your life full of stuff.” He said, “I’ll fill it full of Me. I’ll fill it full of God, and then you will have life to the full." And that’s what Christmas is all about. We often forget that as we get busy shopping, baking, decorating, wrapping, and attending parties. In this message, Jill challenges us to keep the focus on Christ and the significance of His birth this Christmas.

The Answer to Anxiety

Stuart Briscoe

Series: The Best of 2019

Anxiety can be described is a low-grade, ongoing feeling of dread and stress—and is extremely debilitating.  As a result of situations in which we find ourselves in the 21st Century, many people are going through life experiences that are anxiety-producing! The question is: How do we cope?

In this message, Stuart Briscoe takes us to Philippians 4, where the apostle Paul—writing from prison—spoke about how rejoicing and thanks-giving lead to an understanding of the inner peace of God. Learning to live in and experience the presence of His peace offers the answer to our anxiety.   

Scripture: Philippians 4:4 - 4:9

Praying for the Family

Jill Briscoe

Series: The Best of 2019

It’s easy to get discouraged when we’re praying for a family member or a loved one and we just don’t see God answering our prayers. In those times, we might tend to tell God how and when He should answer the prayer instead of having faith that His answer to our prayers might be in a way or at a time that is different than we imagine—but better!

In this message, Jill gives us the example of Elijah and the widow and her son at Zarephath. Sharing her own personal stories, Jill encourages us to keep praying for our loved ones in any circumstances.

Scripture: 1 Kings 17:7 - 17:24

Believers Who Sin, Part 2

Pete Briscoe

Series: The Best of 2019

What do sinners do? They sin. Sinning comes naturally and is to be expected from people who don’t know Jesus. The battle against sin truly begins after you accept Jesus into your life. It’s at that point where you begin to feel the pull toward sinning – yet also feel a counter-pull that makes it difficult to sin. Why? Because you’re now a saint, and sinning is no longer a natural behavior for you. Instead of being a sinner saved by grace, you’re a saint who sometimes sins!

How does this sin battle play out in the life of a believer? That’s what Pete Briscoe teaches in this message from 1 John 3:4-10 where you’ll find hope for victory in your battle against sin.

Scripture: 1 John 3:4 - 3:10

Series: The Best of 2019

What does your daily schedule look like? Is it full of errands and events? Sometimes we become workaholics and worriers, filling our days with too many tasks and constant concerns about things we can’t control rather than taking time to focus on the most important thing of all. In this message, Jill uses the example of Martha to show us instead how Jesus would want us to fill our time.

In this message, Pete Briscoe talks about the promise of rest available to all believers.

Who Is the Disciple Philip?

Pete Briscoe

Series: Everyday Disciples

Do you believe that Jesus can do miracles in your life? Jesus’ disciple Philip was an analytical, practical kind of guy, the one who would handle the details of the disciples’ travel arrangements. This responsible, systematic personality, however, led him to have a hard time believing in the supernatural power of Jesus. Yet Jesus took the opportunity to give Philip, and us, glimpses of how powerful Jesus really is! 

In this message, Pete Briscoe introduces us to Philip and encourages us to avoid Philip’s mistakes and fully embrace Jesus’ supernatural power.

Scripture: John 1:43

Who Is the Disciple John?

Pete Briscoe

Series: Everyday Disciples

The disciple John was a man surrounded by death. As the last of Jesus’ 12 disciples left alive, he had to face the death of all his friends in some horrible ways. Yet he was a man who truly knew what Life was! Through his writings, we see that John had a firm grasp on what true Life really is and where it is found—in Christ alone. 

In this message, Pete Briscoe walks us through some of John’s writings and points us to where eternal, satisfying, intimate, true Life is found.

Scripture: John 20:31

Who Is the Disciple James?

Pete Briscoe

Series: Everyday Disciples

We all have things we’re passionate about. While we’d like to say that our passions are for noble and selfless things, like helping the poor or feeding the hungry, most likely our passions take shape while we’re stuck sitting in traffic or watching a bad call from the ref in a sporting event or feeling personally affronted by what someone says. Jesus’ disciple James was no exception. He was a man full of misplaced, dangerous passion. But allowing his passion to be led by the Holy Spirit changed James into a man whose passion was dangerous—in a good way! 

In this message, Pete Briscoe shares with us some stories from James’ life and guides us in dealing with our passion and the passionate people around us.

Scripture: Luke 9:51

Who Is the Disciple Matthew?

Pete Briscoe

Series: Everyday Disciples

Ever feel like you don’t belong? Like you’re not in the “in” group? Jesus’ disciple Matthew certainly did—as a tax collector, he was rejected and hated by his fellow Jews and by those in the “in” group. When Jesus called Matthew to be one of his followers, Matthew left his sinful lifestyle without hesitation—and then called his fellow “outsiders” to do the same! 

In this message, Pete Briscoe gives us the background of Matthew’s story and shows us what this story really teaches us about Jesus himself.

Scripture: Luke 18:8 - 18:14 , Matthew 23 , Matthew 9:9 - 9:13

Ordinary Men, Extraordinary God

Pete Briscoe

Series: Everyday Disciples

When you think of Jesus’ disciples, what do you picture? Do you picture superheroes or great, powerful men? The truth is that the disciples were just ordinary, everyday men! This group, hand-picked by Jesus, included no scholars, religious leaders, or especially talented men. We have examples of when they lacked faith, humility, spiritual understanding, and power. Yet despite their ordinariness, these men became testimonies of God’s glory when He worked in and through them. 

In this message, Pete Briscoe introduces us to this ragtag group of men and shows us how God’s power changed them from ordinary to extraordinary.

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!

“We need to go out and get into this society of ours as only seniors can and be agents of God’s kingdom-building in our day and age.” - Stuart Briscoe

In this encouraging message, Stuart Briscoe reminds us that if we’re still alive, God has a purpose for us. We shouldn’t equate retiring with stepping away from God’s work for us.

Stuart Briscoe sends out a rally cry to seniors—and seniors to be—asking them to rise up in faith, and actively look for God’s direction in their lives. God promises those who seek Him with their hearts that they will find Him, but He does this through workers. How You Finish Matters because God needs workers!

Series: Improving with Age

The church should be a place for all – the boomers, the millennials, the seniors, and the juniors. But do we revere both youth and seniors as essential elements to the church? Do we believe the principle of unity in diversity can make the church stronger?   

In this message, Stuart Briscoe challenges churches to recognize and encourage the talent that lies in seniors. And he challenges seniors to rise up and show themselves as available and indispensable to the church body.

God's View of Aging

Stuart Briscoe

Series: Improving with Age

The Apostle Paul had the right attitude on aging. He tells us that while we are outwardly diminishing, inwardly our spirits are daily renewed. In other words, don’t focus on the physical signs of aging. Focus on the fact that every day we spend in this world, our Spirits are transforming and preparing us for the work God has for us today!

How do we grasp that concept and apply it to our lives? In this message, Stuart Briscoe looks to Scripture to help us number our days in accordance with God’s eternal plan. 

Scripture: Colossians 3:9 - 3:10 , Romans 8:11 - 8:21

In this message, Stuart Briscoe takes a hard look at how even while we are outwardly wasting away, God wants us to seek things that are above so we can live well all our days.

If you’ve had a birthday this year, you’re aging! But no matter how old you are, God doesn’t want you hung up on the fact that you’re another year older. He wants you to get serious about the business of living your days in cooperation with His eternal plan!

In this message, Stuart Briscoe teaches from Psalm 90 to help us let go of our worldly concern of aging and instead focus each day as another opportunity to be a part of God’s work.

Scripture: Psalm 90

Thriving in an Unholy Culture

Pete Briscoe

Series: Better: A New and Living Way

Yes, the world is changing and it will continue to change, often in directions that are counter to Christian beliefs. But don’t overlook how in the midst of change the church can stand out all the more as a vibrant and beautiful place of love, truth, and grace. 

In this message, Pete dissects Hebrews 13 to show us what the church looks like in exile and how to remain steadfast and stand confidently in Christ, no matter the circumstance.

Scripture: Hebrews 13

Life Is Better Outside the Camp

Pete Briscoe

Series: Better: A New and Living Way

Quite often those who stand with Jesus don’t register high on the popularity meter. But we know that what this world offers us can never compare to all that we’ve been promised in eternity.

In this message, Pete Briscoe reads the moving baptism testimony of his daughter who shares how she’d rather be in the out crowd with Jesus than the in crowd without Him. It’s an inspiring message that encourages us to value our chosen place outside the mainstream camp. 

Scripture: Hebrews 13:9 - 13:14

Getting Your Second Wind

What I'm Still Learning, Part 2

Stuart Briscoe

Series: A Lifetime of Wisdom

From birth, we embark on a lifetime of learning and we learn in a variety of ways. If we assume that we were created by an intentional God who had something in mind when He created us, then clearly we need to learn much about Him and His purposes. Peter said this would “keep you from being ineffective and unproductive in your knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ” (2 Peter 1:8).

Scripture: 2 Peter 1:3 - 1:11
