What Are You Eating?

Pete Briscoe

Series: The Good Life

You know that feeling after you’ve stuffed yourself with junk food? The idea of junk food might seem attractive at first, but you quickly realize how bad it makes you feel. Spiritual “junk food” can have the same effect. You can spend hours consumed with things that are only robbing you of joy and energy.

In this message, Pete Briscoe shares how God has a feast of good food prepared for you—food that will transform and nourish your soul—and where to find it. If you’re willing to leave the junk food behind there’s joy, peace, and personal spiritual growth waiting for you.

Chasing the American Dream, Part 2

Pete Briscoe

Series: The Good Life

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.”

The Call to Discipleship

Stuart Briscoe

Series: Disciples of Jesus

What are you living for?

This is a loaded question that each one of us contemplates and strives to answer. But while we’re searching for the answer, it’s tempting to chase after significance, success, and worth in the way culture defines it. However, as believers in Jesus, our purpose comes from an entirely different source.

In this message, Stuart Briscoe outlines what Scripture teaches about God’s call on the lives of His disciples, and he’ll share how you can discover God’s custom-made plan for your life.

Following, Part 2

Ending Favoritism

Pete Briscoe

Series: What Will Jesus Do?

The world says status, wealth, and acceptance are ingredients to the good life. So we aspire to be the best - placing others in the pecking order as we go. But what does Jesus think about this?

Greatness in God's Kingdom looks a lot different than greatness in the world. For those who have said "yes" to Jesus, there is only one classified group: God's children. The indwelling Christ gives us eyes to see others by His standard of greatness.

Scripture: Luke 9:46 - 9:56

Who Receives the Glory?

Pete Briscoe

Series: What Will Jesus Do?

Do we trust that Jesus will provide for our every need? Our attitude is often: We want it, we want it now, and we'd do anything for it. This voice of our culture builds impatience in our hearts. Jesus grew impatient, too, but only when His disciples attempted to do things that could only be done in Him.

Pete encourages us to break our "working for God" mindset. When we attempt to do things for God, Jesus gets impatient. But when we allow Jesus to work through us, the Father is glorified. Will we live on our own to glorify ourselves, or live in Christ to glorify God?

Scripture: Luke 9:37 - 9:43

We Are Perfectly Incapable

Pete Briscoe

Series: What Will Jesus Do?

Has Jesus ever prompted you to do something far beyond your abilities, and you find yourself thinking, "I just can’t do this?" It leaves us feeling inadequate. However, we should never apply the worldly principle of inadequacy to Kingdom promptings!

Throughout the Gospels, Jesus often asked the disciples to do things they were completely incapable of doing without Him. He wants to do the same in us. Christ is capable of doing in us what we could never do on our own.

Scripture: Luke 9:10 - 9:17

Eligible for Redemption, Part 2

Pete Briscoe

In this message, Pete Briscoe encourages us to remember that our sin actually makes us eligible for redemption. Sin is what makes redemption necessary!

United in Spite of Differences

Pete Briscoe

Series: What Will Jesus Do?

We may say racism is a thing of the past, but, in many ways, it still infects the body of Christ. And just as a diseased body needs treatment until it's completely healed, we shouldn't stop treating racism in Christ's Body.

Jesus went towards those who were different than Him, and He instructs us to do the same. How are you allowing Christ to love all others through you? And what are you doing to treat the disease in the Body?

Scripture: Luke 7:1 - 7:9

Love Your Enemies

Pete Briscoe

Enemies. We've all got them. They irritate us, hurt us, and bring out the worst in us. But as a new creation in Christ, what do you do with your enemies? Jesus assumed we'd have enemies, and His direction to us is blatant, but it's an action only possible through Him.

Great Is Thy Faithfulness - Morning by Morning, Part 2

Jill Briscoe

Series: Facing Jesus in Your Loneliness

Trying to walk in faith is a day-by-day lesson in leaning on God. It's figuring out moment-by-moment what a Christian life looks like—and it's not easy. 

Jeremiah had to learn how to have faith like this when he was in the pit, when he was fighting despair and doubt. During this time, God was teaching Jeremiah to put his mind on Him, instead of on the troubles of life. 

Jeremiah's testimony of learning faith morning by morning is a great lesson for us in pursuing faith, even in doubts and trials.

Getting Past Being Terrified

Pete Briscoe

Series: Making Him Known

Kids are often scared of the dark. They picture monsters under their bed or shadows running across the room, and they become terrified. As adults, we may not be scared of the dark, but there are other things that frighten us. For many, one of those scary things is sharing the news of Jesus Christ with friends, coworkers, and family members. But, that's what God wants us to do – He wants us to tell people about Him. In this message, Pete Briscoe explains how to get past the fear.

Do you remember when you first accepted Christ? Maybe you felt so happy and full of Him that you thought you would burst at the seams if you didn't share this great new change in your life. What happened to that excitement? This message by Pete Briscoe challenges us to remember the purpose that God has for us here on earth.

In this message from Stuart, he recalls early days of ministry when well-meaning friends gave him advice on how to be: more prayerful, more physically fit, well-read, well-rested, family-focused, and ministry-focused!

Settling for More in My Relationships

Pete Briscoe

Series: Settling for More

Many people would say that the relationship they have with their spouse, sibling, or best friend is something that is very special and important to them. Some may even say that their relationships "fulfill" them. But that was not God's intent. God wanted relationships to enhance our lives, not fulfill them.

In this message, Pete looks at the relationships in Jesus' life so that we can follow His example and make good decisions concerning our relationships. 

Scripture: Mark 3:13

The Throne of Grace

Pete Briscoe

Series: The Throne of Grace

How bold are you in approaching God? In Hebrews we are told that we can "approach the throne of grace with boldness." But when we sin, we tend to have one of two reactions: we rationalize or we hide. Why? Because we think that God loves us less when we sin.

The truth is that God loves you perfectly right now - nothing you do can make him love you more or love you less! In this message from Hebrews 5:1-10, Pete Briscoe explains how God's love helps us find this "boldness" and encourages us to be traffickers in grace.

Scripture: Hebrews 5:1 - 5:10
