Blessed Are the Peacemakers part 2

Jill Briscoe

Series: The Best of 2022

You can’t be a peacemaker if you don’t have peace with Jesus, the Prince of Peace.  We’ve all heard this before, but do we really understand what that means and how to practice it in our lives?

In this message, Jill Briscoe talks about the path to finding our peace with Jesus and making peace with others.  It’s an important topic—because we can’t mend our marriages, settle family conflicts, or resolve issues with others if we don’t truly understand what having peace means.

Scripture: Matthew 5:9

The Empty Tomb part 2

Stuart Briscoe

Series: The Best of 2022

After Jesus was crucified, the women who supported Him were traumatized, the apostles who followed Him were terrified, and it seemed as if the incarnational project He undertook was totaled.

Most of the apostles were originally “resurrection” skeptics—and so are many people today.  Peter was willing to explore the message the women brought.  And he eventually came to a life-changing conclusion.  Everything turned around with the discovery of an empty tomb!

Scripture: Luke 4:1 - 4:12

How Should I Handle Temptation?, Part 2

Stuart Briscoe

How do you handle temptation? Do you just give in, shrug your shoulders, and say it's just the way you are? Do you give in and blame Satan? Or do you rely on God and in His power resist the temptation? 

Every temptation that comes our way is an opportunity to go wrong, but it is also an opportunity to do right, and Scripture tells us that God will never allow us to be tempted beyond what we can bear.

Getting Off the Roof, Part 2

Jill Briscoe

Series: Triumph Over Temptation

Giant Temptation comes to all of us. All of us know him. He knows us—he knows when our guard is up, and he knows when we’re feeling lazy. It’s in our times of laziness that we’re faced with temptations that we’re not prepared for, and we, like David, have to choose whether to go along with the giant of temptation or to get off the rooftop. 

Have you experienced a time when you've failed to overcome a temptation? Jill Briscoe shows us that the value of David's life story is not only that it shows man's great sin, but that it shows God's even greater forgiveness and grace.

Trials and temptations are the inevitable lot of fallen people who live in a fallen world. God does not send them, but He does permit them.

The Meaning of Love

Stuart Briscoe

Series: Carry On

We read in I Corinthians 13 a clear and complete description of love. This is the type of love our world is craving. The problem is we are so confused on the subject of love, which of course, is at the root of any kind of relationship, and particularly, any kind of friendship. We need to define the word, identify the various types, explore the source, and understand the meaning of love.

Reading about the Israelites in the Old Testament can make us feel pretty superior. After all, these people, so cherished by God, often got it wrong. God repeatedly blessed them, and in turn, they repeatedly abandoned God for things that seemed better and more appealing. They forgot His Word and His promises. Uncomfortable yet? Does this sound familiar? 


Our world looks pretty much the same way today! There's a famine of hearing and knowing God's Word, both in and outside our churches. Something is missing spiritually, and it affects every other facet of our lives. In this riveting message by Stuart, he explains what we need to do, and what will lead to true life transformation.

Never Give Up

A casual reading of the parable of the widow and the judge might suggest that Jesus was saying if we go on asking God to do what we want, He will give in eventually and we will get our own way!  A careful study of Luke 18:1-14 presents a very different picture.

Another great author, the Apostle Paul, said that no matter what happens—don’t be anxious about anything.

Rest Stops, Part 2

Jill Briscoe

Series: A View from the Porch Swing

One of the best known passages in the Bible is Psalm 23. It describes the relationship between a shepherd and His flock, in which He guides them through pastures, hills and dark valleys. In every case, the sheep are content because the shepherd is there, offering protection and comfort. We are the sheep in this story! 

Jill teaches that no matter what is happening in our lives, good or bad, the only way we can find true contentment—and even joy—in every situation is by trusting in the Lord, our shepherd, who promises to never leave us. 

Scripture: Psalm 23

God's Plan for Workplace

Stuart Briscoe

Series: God Has a Plan - and We're Part of It

In the first century, many believers were slaves or slave owners. How they conducted themselves in these capacities was vitally important. Our situation is different, but our work habits and relationships are no less significant; half of our waking hours are spent there!

Scripture: Ephesians 6:5 - 6:9
