The Best of 2023

Stuart and Jill Briscoe

Of all the topics hotly debated in 2023, perhaps none has been as prominent as artificial intelligence. AI, as it is widely known, uses computers and machines to imitate and even amplify the decision-making and problem-solving skills of the human mind. Some top technology leaders are worried that among the dangers of AI, if left unchecked, is that it could make it difficult for people to know what’s true.

In a way, AI is just one more reason for turning to the Bible. In it, God’s Truth—the truth—about the world and the people who populate it is revealed. In The Best of 2023 from Telling the Truth, you’ll hear Stuart and Jill Briscoe cover important topics ranging from where to find comfort during difficult days, to why the prospect of the “end times” shouldn’t be alarming to followers of Jesus.

The Best of 2023 features our most-requested messages from the year, such as how to grow old gracefully (and gratefully!), along with encouragement for worry-free living, and timeless lessons for us from the parable of the prodigal son.

Although technology constantly changes, the nature of humans doesn’t seem to improve with time. We still need a Savior. In these messages, you’ll find the hope that only God can offer.  

Messages From This Series:

  1. 1. Finding Hope and Comfort in Hard Times

    Jill Briscoe

    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 some of his psalms about it. But he wrote with the knowledge that God’s love brings comfort, encouragement, freshness, and life to those who seek Him.

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

    Scripture:  Psalm 119:52

  2. 4. Don't Worry

    Stuart Briscoe

    Mark Twain said, "My life has been full of many problems, most of which never happened!" He presumably looked to the future with a degree of trepidation and spent a lot of time being anxious about things that actually never happened. Does that sound like something you do, too?

    Another great author, the Apostle Paul, said that no matter what happens—don't be anxious about anything.

    In this message, Stuart Briscoe looks to Scripture to identify the formula for becoming worry-free, no matter what circumstance we are facing—or think we'll have to face.

    Scripture:  Philippians 4:4 - 4:9

  3. 5. Heart Cry

    Jill Briscoe

    Ever feel like something is missing, like you just don’t belong? You probably feel that way because it is true! God created us for Himself and put eternity in our hearts—we were not made for here. So how do we make the most of this life where “everything is meaningless, a chasing after the wind” (as Solomon wrote in Ecclesiastes) in a world that is not our home?

    Scripture:  Ecclesiastes 3:11

  4. 6. Lost and Found

    Jill Briscoe

    A parable is defined as an earthly story with a heavenly meaning. And the parable of the prodigal son found in Luke 15 may be one of the most famous parables in Scripture. The story of the prodigal son is about God losing something very precious and sending His son, Jesus, to get it back. This is God’s world, and He wants it back!

    Scripture:  Luke 15:11 - 15:32
