How You Finish Matters, Part 1

Stuart Briscoe

Series: Finishing Strong

“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. Until we breathe our dying breath, we are God’s workers and He’s in need of workers who are willing to rise to the challenge of expanding His kingdom by waking each morning and saying, “I’m available, Lord, what would you have me do today?”

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! Will you be available for God to work through you well into the golden years of your life?

Scripture: 1 Timothy 2:1 - 2:8

The Role of Seniors in the Church

Stuart Briscoe

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

A Worldly View of Aging

Stuart Briscoe

Series: Improving with Age

None of us know how many days we have left, but we all want our days on Earth to count for something. It’s easy for us to feel like we’ve missed the mark if we evaluate our lives by worldly standards.

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.

Scripture: 2 Corinthians 4:16 , Ecclesiastes 11:9 - 12:5

The Business of Living

Stuart Briscoe

Series: Improving with Age

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

Is There a Purpose for My Pain? Part 2

Pete Briscoe

Series: Better: A New and Living Way

When bad things happen in your life, do you think it’s because God doesn’t love you, or that He’s punishing you because of your sin? 

In this message, Pete Briscoe talks about the true message of Hebrews 12 regarding the purpose for pain in our lives. You might be surprised how God can make all things work together for good.

Getting Your Second Wind

Pete Briscoe

Series: Better: A New and Living Way

Does your Christian life feel like you’re running an uphill cross-country race? We are called to “run with perseverance the race marked out for us.” But how do we continue the race without growing weary and losing heart? 

In this message, Pete Briscoe challenges us to deal with hindrances to our faith so that we not only finish the race, but we enjoy it, too. 

Scripture: Hebrews 12:1 - 12:3

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).

Deborah - How to Fight Your Battles

Jill Briscoe

Series: Women Who Changed Their World

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.

Rahab - How to Start All Over Again

Jill Briscoe

Series: Women Who Changed Their World

Have you ever felt wrongly judged? Rahab was someone who was judged for her outer appearance. A harlot, known for keeping brothels within Jericho, no one would have believed by simply looking at her that she was seeking God. 

Thankfully, God looks beyond what man sees to the desires of our hearts, and changes us from the inside out.

Miriam - How to Be a Servant Leader

Jill Briscoe

Series: Women Who Changed Their World

If you’ve ever wondered what it looks like to be a servant of God, look to Miriam. Miriam served God using her gifts when she took on a willing, servant attitude. Miriam discovered that she had the gift of prophecy, and she used it where God called her—in leading the people of Israel to the Promised Land, alongside Aaron and Moses.

God wants to use you, as He used Miriam, with the gifts and personality that He gave you. In this message, we see how God will put you in the right place at the right time. But He requires you to have the right attitude. 

Scripture: 1 Timothy 2 , Exodus 2 - 15 , Psalm 139

Sarah - How to Have a Good Attitude

Jill Briscoe

Series: Women Who Changed Their World

When we think of someone with a good attitude, Abraham’s wife Sarah is probably not the first person who comes to mind. We might think of her arguments with Abraham, how she laughed at God’s good news, her harsh dealings with Hagar, how she lied to Pharaoh. But in 1 Peter 3, Peter commends Sarah as a model for all women for her “quiet and meek spirit.” What happened in Sarah’s life to turn this feisty, contentious, rebel of a woman into God’s royal princess? 

In this message, Jill teaches us about Sarah’s life—her shortcomings and how God turned this rebel into royalty—and how giving God control in our own lives can transform our attitudes like it did for Sarah.

Scripture: 1 Peter 3 - 4 , Genesis 12 - 18

Eve - How to Find Your Identity

Jill Briscoe

Series: Women Who Changed Their World

Women throughout all of history have been trying to find their identities—through marriage, children, a career. But we can find our true identity and fulfillment only in our relationship with God. Eve had a unique opportunity to be with God in the Garden of Eden, and God revealed His intended work for her, what He designed her to do. But Eve’s identity was challenged in the Fall when Satan deceived Eve into trying to find her identity outside of the God in whose image she was made. We, too, were created in God’s image and were designed for the work He has for us. 

In this message, Jill walks us through Eve’s story and teaches us how it is also our story—how our own identities may be obscured in the Fall but are renewed in Christ’s redemptive work.

Scripture: Genesis 1 - 3

The People and the Book, Part 2

Stuart Briscoe

Series: The People and the Book

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.

Series: Identity Defined

As Christians, we know the Gospel message by heart, but when it comes to sharing it with others, we panic. We avoid sharing it because we tell ourselves we’re not gifted or articulate enough. The truth is if we’re in Christ, we are His ambassadors sent to share the good news with everyone.

Pete Briscoe

Series: Identity Defined

Suffering is inevitable, but when it comes, do you protest and ask, “How could God let this happen to me?” What if, instead of protesting, we embraced suffering? The concept is countercultural, but a powerful thing happens when we embrace suffering—Christ is revealed through us.

How will Christ express Himself as you resist the desire to run from suffering and embrace your difficult circumstance?

You Are a Living Saint

Pete Briscoe

Series: Identity Defined

We tend to believe we’re “sinners saved by grace.” While it’s true that we are born sinners, we’re in error if, as Christians, we continue to claim that identity. Falsely believing we’re sinners, only leads to a cycle of sinful tendencies. Pete reminds us that in Christ, we are no longer sinners—we are saints!

Will you accept you’re “a saint who sometimes sins,” or will you continue to believe you’re still just a sinner?

Faith's Fundamentals

Stuart Briscoe

Series: Keep the Faith

Hebrews addressed a struggling group of Jewish believers discovering that discipleship would not be easy as Jesus had warned. In it they were encouraged to “keep the faith,” warned of the dangers of failure to do so, and reminded how to mature in their faith. But they must be willing to move beyond faith’s fundamentals—to make progress and mature.

Jesus Is Fierce, Part 2

Pete Briscoe

Series: Everyday Jesus

We all get upset sometimes—with ourselves, with another person, or with our circumstances. It can bring out pretty ugly sides of us all. But do you think this anger is ever appropriate?

In the Gospels, we see Jesus as loving, compassionate, gentle, and forgiving, but we also see Him get angry. And when we look closely at these instances of anger, we’ll see very intentional reasons for it.

In this message, Pete Briscoe examines closely what made Jesus upset and shows us what it would look like for Him to get angry through us.

Jesus Is Scandalous

Pete Briscoe

Series: Everyday Jesus

Are you too concerned with what others think of you—avoiding situations or changing how you act or respond just to win their approval?

Time and time again throughout the Gospels we see how Jesus was unafraid of tarnishing His reputation. In fact, He did things that were seen as outlandish and even scandalous.

In this message, Pete Briscoe shows us several instances when Jesus was far more concerned with loving people than what people thought of Him. You’ll learn how Jesus wants to help you break free from the oppressive need to fit in so you don’t miss out on how He wants to use you to love others.

Scripture: Luke 5:12 - 5:16

What did you do? Did you approach them about it and endure the awkwardness and potential consequences? Or did you choose not to say anything?

In this message, Pete Briscoe looks closely at Luke’s Gospel to examine how Jesus approached these uncomfortable situations. You’ll learn how there are times when He needs us to be a compassionate yet disruptive force in the lives of those we love.

Jesus Is Extravagantly Generous

Pete Briscoe

Series: Everyday Jesus

During His earthly ministry, Jesus performed some incredible miracles: turning water into wine, feeding the 5,000, healing the sick, and countless more. All these events point to the fact that Jesus was generous with His actions, gifts, and time in illogical, extravagant ways. He gave above and beyond, and that was just His way.

But do you think He demonstrates that same way of giving today? In this message, Pete Briscoe looks to the Gospels of John and Mark to show us Christ’s generosity every day and how He desires to express that same extravagant generosity through us as we give of our time and resources.

Scripture: John 2:1 - 2:11 , Mark 12:41 - 12:44

Pete Briscoe

Series: Everyday Jesus

If you believe this and you limit your perception of Jesus to a stern teacher, then your walk with Him can become stiff and rigid. But when you look at the Gospels, you can see how Jesus loved to smile, laugh, and share joyful moments with His disciples and everyone He encountered.

In this message, Pete Briscoe shows us how Jesus had a playful side to His character. If your life with Jesus has stiffened, He can’t wait to bring joy and laughter back into your life!

A Limited Experience of Jesus

Pete Briscoe

Series: Everyday Jesus

How do you like to spend time with Jesus? Maybe it’s through the study of theology, music, the arts, in solitude, or maybe in nature. But here’s another question to ponder: How willing are you to experience Him in everyday ways?

The truth is, our experience of Jesus is limited mostly by the limits we place on Him. If we insist Jesus must interact with us through one specific way, we’re missing out on the incredible things He has for us.

In this message, Pete Briscoe points out an aspect of Jesus’ character that proves just how much He desires you to know Him in rich, creative, and diverse ways.

But the Christian’s prayer requests need to be in line with Jesus’ model prayer.

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.

Miraculous Healing

Stuart Briscoe

Series: Finding Healing

We’re hungry for spectacular healing in our lives—for God to take away our infirmities in a moment’s work.

For 38 years the crippled man lay on his filthy mat near the pool of Bethesda hoping to be healed when the water stirred. Jesus sought him out and asked him, “Do you want to get well?” On the surface, this might seem like an odd question, but maybe Jesus was getting at something richly profound.

In this message taught from John 5:1-15, Stuart Briscoe discusses how when Jesus performs a spectacular healing miracle, he heals so much more than just our bodies.

Scripture: John 5:1 - 5:15

The Healer

Pete Briscoe

Series: The Healer

Thankfulness finds its resting place at the feet of Jesus—our comforter, our protector, and our healer. This message is a reminder that Jesus was and always will be in the business of healing people in all areas of life. And even when He hasn’t healed as we hope, we can still trust Him in His sovereignty.

Scripture: Luke 17:11 - 17:19

God's Plan for the 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

Believers on Mission

Pete Briscoe

Series: The Essence of Christian Living

God reaches down into humanity and asks all of us to share His Good News throughout the world. But not all of us feel called to move to a different country to plant churches or live in isolated tribes to create a written language of the native tongue.

What does being on mission look like in our individual lives? We don’t have to wonder!

In this message, Pete Briscoe teaches from 3 John to show us the beautiful and simple way that each of us can love the unloved, and be on mission to tell others about Jesus.

Scripture: 3 John

What the World Needs from Christians

Pete Briscoe

Series: The Essence of Christian Living

2 John is a short letter but it packs a powerful message of how the church of Jesus Christ should look—to love everyone we encounter while never shying away from sharing God’s truth.

God’s family is called to live in the tension that love and truth create. How do we go about living this way when now more than ever the world views Christians as intolerant and unloving, even to each other?

In this message, Pete Briscoe, teaches from 2 John to show us how to walk constantly in love and truth. It’s exactly what this angry and hateful world desperately needs.

Scripture: 2 John

Scripture: 1 John 5:18 - 5:21

Struggling with Doubt

Pete Briscoe

Series: The Essence of Christian Living

How confident are you in your faith, your salvation, and in your beliefs about God? Do you ever doubt?

Doubt is something we often think of as forbidden. It can bring about guilt and shame, and we may even think of ourselves as “less of a Christian” if we struggle with it. However, doubting is more common than you may think, and Scripture tells us where we can turn when we’re grappling with it.

In this message, Pete uses 1 John 5:6-13 to outline four truths that eradicate doubt and bring us to a place of confidence in our faith. 

Scripture: 1 John 5:6 - 5:13

Scripture: 1 John 5:1 - 5:5

Have you lost your joy? It can be hard when life is swirling around you and beating you down, but true joy is found in praising God for who He is and what He’s doing, even when you can’t see it.
