Inside the Box

Pete Briscoe

Everyone loves receiving gifts... studying the box, wondering what's inside, and then the final reveal when the gift is opened and you can enjoy what you've been given! In this series by Pete, he unwraps four amazing gifts we've received from God: salvation, freedom, rest, and grace and takes them out of their boxes for a closer look. As you study these extravagant gifts, you'll discover that all other gifts pale in comparison to the blessings inside God's boxes. 

  • Trading Boxes: Are you choosing legalism over Jesus?
  • Empty Boxes: Does God think rest is as important as work? 
  • Gift Boxes: Why do you have to give it all if God's gift is free? 
  • Boxing Day: Are you accumulating or appreciating?

Messages From This Series:

  1. 1. Trading Boxes

    Pete Briscoe

    Everyone knows there are laws to follow when driving a car... no speeding, no tailgating, no running red lights. Have you ever disobeyed those rules and gotten caught? If so, maybe you remember feeling angry, embarrassed, or guilty about it. Many of us feel the same way when we sin by not following God's laws.

    In this message, Pete dives into the book of Galatians to help us understand how Christ freed us from the bondage of sin. 

    Scripture:  Galatians 1:6 - 1:7 , Galatians 2 - 5

  2. 2. Empty Boxes

    Pete Briscoe

    In today's society, we feel the need to pack as many things into the day as possible. Restful activities are a thing of the past. Conversation has been replaced by smartphones. Naps are for lazy people. Walks in the park take too long. But did you know that God wants us to rest? In fact, rest is a gift from God.

    This message by Pete explains how we can learn to say "no" to things, so that we can say "yes" to rest. 

    Scripture:  Mark 2:23 - 2:28

  3. 3. Gift Boxes: The Ultimate Exchange

    Pete Briscoe

    There are lots of gift exchanges around Christmas time. We give gifts to our friends, family, coworkers, and even strangers. But there is one gift exchange that is better than all the rest—the ultimate gift exchange that takes place between God and us. And although God only desires one gift from us, He showers us with many amazing gifts that can fill us up.

    In this message, Pete explores the many gifts that God gives us, while also explaining what we can give to God in return. 

    Scripture:  Matthew 2:1 - 2:11

  4. 4. Happy Boxing Day

    Pete Briscoe

    Christmas is over. Boxes, wrapping paper, and bows are what remain. And now we have the familiar problem of trying to find a place for all of our new gifts. So often, our homes become packed full of stuff. We need to clean out and give to those who are less fortunate.

    In this message, Pete explores the book of Ruth to explain how we can reach out to those in need. 

    Scripture:  Ruth 2
