Stuart Briscoe

Walking in Truth

Stuart Briscoe

Series: Living the Life

In its early days, the Christian church was very conscious of the struggle for the souls of men and women between “the Spirit of truth and the spirit of falsehood.” In our modern culture, we see dramatically changing attitudes toward truth. But we must recognize that there is such a thing as truth, and there is such a thing as error.

Scripture: 1 John 4:1 - 4:21

Walking in Love, Part 2

Stuart Briscoe

Series: Living the Life

Love is a common theme of both Christian and secular thought and interest. Because of this, Christians need to be careful to understand the uniqueness of the love that characterizes the children of God—what it is, what it does, and what it says about who we are in Christ.

Scripture: 1 John 3:10 - 3:24

I'm Depending

Pete Briscoe

Series: Dance Lessons

Dependent isn’t an adjective most people would want to use to describe themselves. Rather, we would like to be independent, in control. Paul writes about being dependent on Christ as a wonderful and necessary thing for Christian living. It is a privilege! 

In this message, Pete Briscoe teaches us how dependence on God is a beautiful part of the dance, as we let the Spirit guide us through daily living.

Scripture: Galatians 2:20 , Mark 9:17 - 9:26

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.

Scripture: Mark

We Are Perfectly Incapable

Pete Briscoe

Series: What Will Jesus Do?

Has Jesus ever prompted you to do something far beyond your abilities, and you find yourself thinking, “I just can’t do this?” It leaves us feeling inadequate. However, we should never apply the worldly principle of inadequacy to Kingdom promptings!

Throughout the Gospels, Jesus often asked the disciples to do things they were completely incapable of doing without Him. He wants to do the same in us. Christ is capable of doing in us what we could never do on our own.

Scripture: Luke 9:10 - 9:17

The Moment Jesus Returns, Part 2

Pete Briscoe

Series: The Essence of Christian Living

How you feel about Jesus’ return probably has a lot to do with your understanding of the Bible.

There certainly will be a lot of action that day—the dead in Christ rising, non-believers swept away, believers lifted up to meet Jesus in the clouds. It will be an amazing day!

But if you’re not sure about how Jesus will react to you, you might be living in fear of His return. Maybe that fear stems from a struggle with sin, or you’re afraid you’ll be sinning at that exact moment He returns.

In this message, Pete Briscoe teaches from 1 John 2 & 3 to help release you from your fear and anxiety. You’ll learn why and how you can live confidently today while you wait for Jesus’ imminent return.

Detecting False Teaching

Pete Briscoe

Series: The Essence of Christian Living

Have you ever heard biblical teaching that sounded a bit off? Sometimes it’s glaringly obvious, but other times, you might not even be aware that you’re being deceived.

False teaching can be extremely dangerous. It can lead you into temptation and outside of the Life Jesus came to give. So, how can you discern false teaching and avoid anything beyond the realm of God’s Truth?

Pete Briscoe takes you to the answer found in 1 John and shares how to recognize the telltale sign of false teaching and avoid its danger and deceit.

Scripture: 1 John 2:18 - 2:27

Flirting with the World

Pete Briscoe

Series: The Essence of Christian Living

Why is the world such a dangerous place for Christians? Because worldly pleasures are developed by the evil one for the purpose of drawing you away from Jesus.

Just like a true friend would warn you of impending danger, John cautions us in 1 John about the danger of being seduced by worldly things that are not from God but are from Satan—things that pull us away from Jesus and into harmful circumstances.

In this message, Pete Briscoe shows us what’s at stake when we maintain a flirtatious relationship with worldly things.

Scripture: 1 John 2:12 - 2:17

Distorted Love

Pete Briscoe

Series: The Essence of Christian Living

Is there ever a check in your spirit about whether you’re really a Christian? Studied out of context, 1 John 2:3, which mentions obeying commands, can read more like a warning to believers and cause us to doubt if we’re really children of God. But in reality, John brings to light in his letter the most beautiful and magnificent truth about the new command that Jesus wants us to focus on.

In this message, Pete Briscoe uses John’s letter to lift the burden of doubt we might carry about our salvation. And at the same time, teaches us about Jesus’ design for love that is counterintuitive to how we love on our own.

Scripture: 1 John 2:3 - 2:13

What Is God Really Like? Part 2

Stuart Briscoe

Series: What Is God Really Like?

People become remarkably imaginative about God.  But Scripture says, “Eye has not seen, ear has not heard, neither has entered into the heart of man what God has prepared for those who love Him, but God has revealed them to us by His Spirit.”

Not speculation, not imagination – but revelation. God is in the business of self-revelation, which is a fundamental tenant of Christianity. He has made human beings uniquely capable of receiving what He is revealing. And more than that, He has given us the ability of responding to what we are receiving.  

He reveals himself, first of all, in creation. Secondly, He reveals himself in covenant, and thirdly, He reveals himself in Christ. This is how we go about discovering what God is really like.

Be a Witness, Part 2

Pete Briscoe

Series: Be a Witness

Jesus left simple and clear instructions for all believers who have received the Holy Spirit. Be a witness—tell people about Me, tell them about the cross, tell them how I’ve transformed your life. That’s the passionate witnessing we see the disciples doing in Acts after they received the Holy Spirit. Do you see this in your life—in your church?

In this message Pete Briscoe reminds us where our priorities lie as the church of Christ and challenges each of us to make a difference in our homes, at work, in our communities and in our relationships by living out what Jesus asks of us: to be My witnesses.

Sufficient Grace, Part 2

Jill Briscoe

Series: Grace in the Garden

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. 

“You who wore my thorns that I may know Your grace...pierced by my sin that I may see Your face...loved and forgiven from shame and deep disgrace. You wore my thorns. You wore my thorns.” (from Jill’s poem “You Wore My Thorns” copyright 2003)

Saving Grace

Jill Briscoe

Series: Grace in the Garden

Why is a walk in a garden so relaxing? Because we were created to live in God’s garden of perfection, forever. Unfortunately, as the story goes, Adam and Eve made a fatal error and were forced to make their home in the garden of sin instead, where nothing is perfect or peaceful. 

But remember, this is God’s story! God came looking for Adam and Eve after they disobeyed. And in His grace, He still comes looking for us today. Jill Briscoe takes us through biblical examples of God’s saving grace and how He offers us a way to His riches through Christ.

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?

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

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.

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?

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!

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

Martha—Busyness, Part 2

Jill Briscoe

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.

Scripture: Luke 10:38 - 10:42

Pete Briscoe
