Staying on Message, Part 2

Pete Briscoe

Series: Using Your Influence

Yes, we want to tell people about Jesus, but too often we freeze up and the words just won’t come. That wasn’t a problem with the early church though—remember Peter who spoke after Pentecost and three thousand people trusted Christ after hearing his words!

So when we finally have the opportunity, why do we struggle to share the message of Jesus with family, friends, neighbors, and coworkers?

We can put aside our anxiousness when we know how to present the Gospel in a clear and compelling way. In this message, Pete Briscoe teaches from Peter’s sermon in Acts chapter 2 and outlines a simple and memorable way to share the Gospel.

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.

Scripture: Acts 4:1 - 4:22

Why Is It So Hard to Tell People About Jesus? Part 2

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.

Living Today in the Light of Tomorrow

Stuart Briscoe

Series: Finding Happiness

We tend to think in terms of the here and now, and that’s understandable—we live here and we’re living now!  But this world is not home for believers.  If we’re too focused on the things of this world and never give a thought to living in the light of tomorrow, we won’t live well in the HERE and NOW!

This might all sound like a challenging riddle, but the Apostle Peter uses this line of thinking to warn us about the risk of becoming so earthbound and seduced by the things of this world that we lose sight of heaven.  But what does living in light of tomorrow look like?

In this message, Stuart Briscoe teaches from 2 Peter about living in anticipation of the eternal days to come, so that we can live our best life now.

So where does this leave us?

The Road to Joy, Part 2

Stuart Briscoe

Series: Finding Happiness

We have an insatiable desire to control and manipulate what happens around us—all in pursuit of achieving happiness.  But the truth is we have very little control of what’s happening around us and hence little chance of finding the happiness that eludes us.

As believers in Jesus, should the pursuit of happiness really be our end goal?  Do we need God to fix our happenings, or do we need God to fix our attitudes?

In this message, Stuart Briscoe teaches from Nehemiah where we learn where to find stability, security, and well-being—and discover where God wants us to focus our minds so we can rejoice and be glad even in uncertain days.

What do you think about gay marriage? Do you believe Muslims are peaceful or violent people? Do you think abortion is a woman’s right? 

What strategy will you use to answer tough questions like these? Will you provide a politically correct answer, a faith-based answer, or shrug off the questions and not answer at all? 

You need a strategy if you’re going to engage on the tough issues. In this message, Pete Briscoe suggests we think twice about sharing our opinion and instead stick with what we know is most important—and will ultimately change people’s lives.

Arguments Don’t Transform Lives

Pete Briscoe

Series: Living in a Messed Up World

Gun control, human rights, police brutality, government corruption—these are perplexing and difficult issues to discuss. What’s happening in our country and how are we as Christians supposed to react? Especially when our faith response can often place us in situations where arguments easily flare and lead to even further disparity. 

In this message, Pete Briscoe explores how we risk losing our voice to speak into important issues if we fail to convey our position with tender boldness.

Weathering the Storms of Life, Part 2

Jill Briscoe

Series: Weathering the Storms of Life

Life is full of squalls—sudden unannounced and unexpected storms that can lead us to question if God is in control of our lives. Death, sickness, unemployment, broken relationships, fears and failures are some of the troubles Satan uses to swamp us with doubt, usually when we’re already stressed and exhausted. 

How do you respond when you’re hit with the squalls of life? Are you like the disciples in Mark 4 who wondered why Jesus slept while their boat was sinking, or do you believe God is in as much control when He’s seemingly asleep as when He’s obviously awake? Do you pray, “Don’t let there be another squall”? Or do you see storms as part of God’s plan for your life? 

Teaching from the Gospel of Mark, Jill Briscoe addresses the issues of suffering and faith, challenging us to examine our beliefs in God in the midst of trouble.

How Do I Know You Love Me, God?

Stuart Briscoe

Series: Who Are You, God?

Your perception of love is heavily influenced by your family and relational background. Because of this, you might tend to view God’s love based on your own standard of measurement, rather than on your understanding of what Scripture says about love. 

Stuart Briscoe challenges you to step away from your own perceptions of love, and embrace the truth about God’s love instead. When you can discover the reality of God’s love for you, you can experience a love that sparks peace and joy beyond explanation!

Scripture: 1 John 4:7 - 4:21

Why Did You Make Me, God? Part 2

Stuart Briscoe

Series: Who Are You, God?

When you look at the immensity of the universe—and the immensity of the God behind it—have you ever felt small and irrelevant? You’re a tiny speck in a grand universe of what God has made, so why did He create you?

In this message, Stuart Briscoe shows you a clear answer to this question found in Psalm 8:1-9. The God of the universe cares deeply for you, and you’ll see you’ve been created for so much more than you might think.

Scripture: Psalm 8:1 - 8:9

He Gifts Me

Jill Briscoe

Series: God's Love for Us

At times, we may feel useless, uncreative, ungifted, and unfit to do God's work. But simply by the fact that God has brought us into a redemptive relationship with Him, we can be encouraged that He has gifted us! The Holy Spirit is our gift; He is our anointing to do the good works that God has prepared in advance for us to do. 

This message assures us that God has gifted us and God will see us through the tasks He set before us. We can say, as David says, "He has exalted me by helping me to know Him."

Scripture: 2 Samuel 23

He Forgives Me, Part 2

Jill Briscoe

Series: God's Love for Us

No sin is bigger than God's forgiveness and mercy. There will be consequences for sin, but the love of God is the kind of unconditional love that shows mercy when the object of its love lies prostrate and repentant. David learned this when he sinned against God with Bathsheba, he learned the weight of guilt. He also learned that God's mercy is an attribute of His unfailing love. 

In this message, Jill Briscoe teaches us the importance of letting God love us by letting Him forgive us.

Scripture: Psalm 103:4

Our Bad Moments

Pete Briscoe

Series: Our Bad Moments

After your bad moments—moments when you flat-out blow it—what do you do? Do you isolate yourself? Do you self-condemn? Do you struggle to seek forgiveness and to forgive yourself?

In this message from Luke 22, Pete Briscoe talks about the road back to intimacy with Jesus after we feel like we’ve disqualified ourselves.

Scripture: Luke 22

He Comforts Me, Part 2

Jill Briscoe

Series: God's Love for Us

When trials and suffering come, where do we turn? We ought to turn to God, the God of all comfort. Suffering in this life is inevitable. David knew that. He wrote his psalms about that. But he wrote with the knowledge that God’s love brings comfort, encouragement, freshness, and life to those who pant after Him. 

In this message, Jill points us to the many resources for encouragement that God has already given us: His Holy Spirit, His word, and His people. God beckons us to bring encouragement to those around us. 

Scripture: Psalm 119:52

He Promised Me, Part 2

Jill Briscoe

Series: God's Love for Us

When man makes promises, he rarely follows through. God, on the other hand, can make promises the size of eternity, and He always follows through! God promised David that He would give him a throne that would never pass away. God promised to bring a new covenant to His people through David’s line, a covenant that would bring an eternity where there are no broken promises. 

In this message, we learn of God’s faithfulness in His grand promises. We can trust His promises because they are based on His unfailing love!

Scripture: Psalm 41 , Psalm 73 - 76
