Chasing the American Dream

Series: The Good Life

Pete Briscoe

Go to college, get a good job, buy a car—maybe two—and a house, get married, and achieve great success. Sound familiar? It’s called the American Dream, and many of us have grown up believing that achieving it is the ultimate goal in life.

In reality, the American Dream is nothing but a list of cravings with an empty promise that says, “If you get everything, you’ll be happy.” It’s a futile attempt to find life in lifestyle.

So what’s the alternative? In this message, Pete Briscoe takes us to John 3:1-16 and shares how to stop chasing things that will never satisfy and trade in the American Dream for the real “good Life.”

Scripture: John 3:1 - 3:16
