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

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.

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.

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.

Strengthened Through Prayer

Pete Briscoe

Series: More Effective Prayer

It takes tremendous courage to stand firm in times of opposition and persecution when every fiber of your being tells you to turn and run. As the early church set out to do as Jesus asked—to be his witnesses throughout the world, they continually faced hostile situations. How did they manage to keep telling people about Jesus—even when it became an illegal act?

In this message, Pete Briscoe teaches about prayer from Acts 4 to show us how to find courage.

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.

Teach Us to Listen

Jill Briscoe

Series: More Effective Prayer

If you only talked to your spouse for a minute or two a few times a week, what would your relationship be like?  Disconnected?  Distant?  A lot of us have a prayer life like that.  We don’t spend much time in conversation with God, and when we make the effort, we do all the talking!

One of the things that matters most to Jesus is our personal relationship with Him.  He offers the human race an incredible invitation. He says, “Let’s talk.”  What does this mean?  It involves listening to His Word and responding in prayer.

In this message, Jill Briscoe gives you a vivid picture of the intimacy you’ll experience when you carve out time to connect with God.

Why Is Jesus So Important?

Pete Briscoe

Series: Go Ahead and Ask

The one thing we need is sometimes the one thing we lack. We need tickets to a sold-out event, a higher test score, or even a hand to help us when we’re drowning. The problem is the one thing we need is the one thing we lack. And often, we need someone else to help us get what we’re lacking.

In regards to our salvation, Jesus has the one thing we lack, and He wants to give it to us. We are completely incapable of salvation on our own, but Christ came to provide what we need. Say “yes” to Him, and receive what He has. He’s the only way.

Trying to use a different currency is similar to trying to gain salvation through works, giving, volunteering, or just being a nice person. It won’t work. You can’t gain salvation through your own means.

In this message, Pete shares what the Bible says the Kingdom-currency really is. It’s unique, and in complete faith and trust, it’s available to us now.

So how do we deal with this silent killer? What difference can we make? As Christians, we not only know sin to be deadly, but we know the cure! We know only the grace Jesus offers can counteract sin’s deadly consequence. We are called to both expose the disease and introduce others to its cure.

Overcoming the Fear of Failure

Pete Briscoe

Series: Using Your Influence

What holds you back in life, regardless of the goal? It’s probably a fear of failure. A fear that you’ll mess up in some way—make the wrong move, use the wrong words, pick the wrong time,  fail to deliver, seem uninformed ….

Fear manifests itself in many ways—and in the Christian life, fear is the main reason we overthink, postpone, and avoid telling people about Jesus! How do we win against these overpowering fears that effectively keep the Hope we have locked up inside of us?

In this message, Pete Briscoe strips away the paralyzing power of fear and empowers us to confidently share with people in a freeing, new way the extravagant love of Jesus!

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 4 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.

Pete Briscoe

Series: Using Your Influence

We live in a world where moral and immoral ideas, life-giving and life-ending ideas, and liberty-affirming and rights-restricting ideas are all thought to have merit and be worthy of consideration. As a result, claiming that Jesus is the remedy for every hurt, transgression, broken situation, and societal ill is likely be met with a sneer. But we can’t let sneers, name-calling, or fear stop us from sharing the incredible gift of Jesus. Paul never did. He was bold, even in the face of resistance and crowds of hecklers.

In this message, Pete Briscoe digs into Acts 17 to show us what motivated Paul to time and time again proclaim Jesus, even in the most pagan-loving city of all, Athens. It’s a message for us now as we struggle to tell a resistant world about Jesus.
