Worship and Prayer

Stuart Briscoe

Series: God of Wonder, God of Worship

Worship is a response to God’s self-revelation. Prayer, which is either a spoken or unuttered response to Him, is therefore a premier aspect of worship. Whether in the congregation or alone, Jesus taught us we should pray and pray continually.

Scripture: Luke 11:1 - 11:13

Fight for the Family

Jill Briscoe

Families have been under attack from the beginning of time, and they are under attack today. The devil, who hates families with complete disdain, works overtime to tear down every wall we rebuild. How do we overcome his opposition when we’re exhausted from the constant patch work?

In this message, Jill Briscoe teaches from the book of Nehemiah on where to draw strength for rebuilding our family relationships.

How can we live above the problems of everyday life? Habakkuk tells us how, and it’s all about getting God’s perspective. There is unspeakable joy in embracing, accepting, and submitting to whatever “burden” God has called each of us to endure. With His help, we can live above it!

The Mystery of Godliness

Stuart Briscoe

Series: Cheerful Godliness

Contemporary songs have a brief life. Traditional songs last a little longer. But today's Scripture reading includes a fragment of a Christian hymn 2,000 years old. That alone makes it worthy of consideration. It's about Christmas and "the mystery of godliness."

Scripture: 1 Timothy 3:14 - 3:16

The Contentment of Godliness

Stuart Briscoe

Series: Cheerful Godliness

The heretical teachers were apparently extorting exorbitant amounts of money from the church using godliness as a means to financial gain. Paul repudiated their activities but used the opportunity to show the great gain of "godliness with contentment."

Scripture: 1 Timothy 6:3 - 6:10

The Disciplines of Godliness

Stuart Briscoe

Series: Cheerful Godliness

Paul understood the importance of athletics in the lives of his contemporaries. Accordingly, he found it helpful to use athletic terms to define and contrast the difference between "physical training" and the need for believers to "train (themselves) in godliness."

Scripture: 1 Timothy 4:1 - 4:16


July 23, 2021

The Development of Godliness

Stuart Briscoe

Series: Cheerful Godliness

The "towers" of salvation history of which Paul wrote are "The Epiphany of Grace" (v.11) and "The Epiphany of Glory." (v.13) In between these monumental events we are called "to say 'No' to ungodliness" and to nurture "godly lives in this present age." (v.12)

Scripture: Titus 2:11 - 2:14

The Basis of Godliness

Stuart Briscoe

Series: Cheerful Godliness

In these days of international and national uncertainty, people are praying earnestly for those who hold positions of power and responsibility in order that we might "live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness." But what is godliness and what does it look like?

Jill Briscoe

Series: Living in the Word

Living Today in the Light of Tomorrow

Stuart Briscoe

Series: Six Things We Must Never Forget

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.  

Scripture: 2 Peter 3:14 - 3:18

God Is Still God and Firmly in Control

Stuart Briscoe

Series: Six Things We Must Never Forget

In Peter's time, some people wished to live without God so they rationalized Him into irrelevance. Others, thinking He had disappeared from the scene, sought life without Him. The same mistakes are being made today. But He is still God and firmly in control.

Scripture: 2 Peter 3:1 - 3:13

If There's a Heaven, There's a Hell, Part 2

Stuart Briscoe

Series: Six Things We Must Never Forget

There were many false teachers in these days, and one of the things they were saying is that there's no need to worry about a final judgment. But that's just wrong! If we believe there's no final judgment, then it really doesn't matter what we do. If it doesn't matter what we do, then we can spend our life raising "hell." We can just go out and have a wild time! We can do everything that our lower nature longs to do—no restraints, no limits, no consequences, and no accountability. That's just not true, as Peter points out in this passage, 2 Peter 2:1-9.

Scripture: 2 Peter 2:1 - 2:9

The Scriptures Are About Fact Not Fantasy

Stuart Briscoe

Series: Six Things We Must Never Forget

In Peter’s day, the Old Testament Scriptures and the apostles’ teachings were being twisted, fundamental truths ridiculed, and biblical morality repudiated. So he reminded the people of the significance of God’s Word. We need the reminder, too, for we live in similar days.

Scripture: 2 Peter 1:12 - 1:21

Liberty Has Its Limits, Part 2

Stuart Briscoe

Series: Six Things We Must Never Forget

Human history is all about oppression and liberation, tyranny and emancipation. It is also about the abuse of freedom and confusion about liberty. Peter addressed the issue, talking about being “slaves of depravity” and “a man is a slave to whatever has mastered him.”

God will use you, no matter how broken you are, if you are obedient. This is the lesson we can learn from the book of Esther.

Esther started as a simple Jewish girl. But God asked her to be obedient, and she ended up risking her life to go before the king and make a request that her people be saved. She went with the knowledge that she would most likely be killed. But Esther had faith and was obedient.

Daring to Dare, Part 2

Jill Briscoe

Series: God in the Shadows

Most of us like to put our roots down and feel secure. We don't like change. We don't like being pushed into situations where we'll risk anything. But sometimes God calls us to do this!

God calls us to be believers, like Esther and Mordecai, who care enough about the souls of others that we risk our own comfort, and sometimes our own lives, in order to fight for the lives of those around us.

Jill teaches us how to be believers who care enough to dare—believers with courage to do the right thing even when we're afraid!

The Darkening Sky

Jill Briscoe

Series: God in the Shadows

Have you experienced a darkening sky in your life? When you find yourself there, do you shine brighter for it, or flicker out? Esther's life seemed to be a downward spiral of difficulties. But she continued to shine brightly for God in the unbelieving kingdom of which she was now queen.

As Jill takes you through the amazing story of Esther, a simple Jewish girl made queen, you will see that you, too, can be empowered by God to keep shining his light, even in an ever darkening sky.

A Star Is Born

Jill Briscoe

Series: God in the Shadows

Sometimes God's will isn't what we would have picked out for ourselves. It isn't what we want. And it's difficult to accept.

Esther's life didn't turn out how she wanted it to. She found herself separated from her family and married to the unbelieving King of Persia. Through these trials, God made Esther into a Supernova, shining even more brightly in the hardships. But before she could get there, she had to die to her own dreams and her own plan. Are you willing to do the same?

Scripture: Esther 2

Starlight, Part 2

Jill Briscoe

Series: God in the Shadows

If God called you to a difficult task in a difficult place, would you shine light into that place? Would you, like Esther, be a star for God? Esther is a great example of someone who faced seemingly impossible circumstances. She was forced to marry a very powerful, very worldly man: the King of Persia.

While not many of us can relate to such a circumstance as Esther had, we can learn from her faith and obedience. You are right in center stage of where God wants you to be and what God wants you to do in your life. Will you be obedient?

Being Part of Something Grand

Stuart Briscoe

Series: Why Church?

Do we ever really recognize the enormity of what it means to be part of the body of Christ?

If you are a Christian, you have been invited and commanded to join in on God's plan to make all things new. God wants to renew everything that was lost in the fall. This is what mission means—to be part of the community infiltrating culture and society in order to bring people into the kingdom and to bring about the purposes of God.

Gathered for Fellowship

Stuart Briscoe

Series: Why Church?

In the modern day church, our constant emphasis on our personal relationships with Christ has caused us to lose sight of the community of faith that we're a part of. Jesus commanded that His people gather as a church so that they would be reminded of their citizenship in this community—both the visible and the invisible. Fellowship is also the reason that Jesus first commanded His disciples to disciple others, so that more people could come to share the fellowship that Christians enjoy with the Father, Son, and Spirit.

In this message, Stuart walks through what this fellowship and community looked like in the early church.

Scripture: Acts 2 , John 1:3 , Romans 1:16 , Romans 12:9 - 12:10

The Church Gathered, the Church Scattered

Stuart Briscoe

Series: Why Church?

If we're stuck in the mindset of the church as a building in which we gather, instead of a community of believers, we lose sight of one of the key purposes of the church: to scatter among the lost.

The first church understood what it meant to be a rich, powerful community that prepared and supported people for mission work. Have we lost this in our churches today?

In this message, Stuart explains the missions of the early church, while encouraging us to use our churches today not just to gather, but also to scatter.

Combating Crows, the Enemy of the Harvest

Jill Briscoe

Series: Roll Up Your Sleeves and Sow!

Have you ever witnessed someone growing in their faith and then suddenly there is a horrible spiritual attack? Jesus warned there is an enemy of the harvest—crows that are bent on snatching the seeds scattered in the fields before strong roots can take hold.

We may not like to think about it, but Satan is eager to discourage and snatch away believers. In this message, Jill Briscoe encourages all the saints to get in the fight, disciple those around them, and help people grow strong roots in their faith.

Tending the Kingdom’s Garden

Jill Briscoe

Series: Roll Up Your Sleeves and Sow!

It's easy to see when a garden needs watering. The plant leaves begin to wilt, the ground becomes dry, and cracks appear. And if the plants aren't tended to, they're at risk of withering and dying.

It's the same with people who need Jesus. In this message, Jill Briscoe helps us understand what's at risk and asks us to dedicate ourselves to impacting people in our sphere of influence.

In this message, Jill Briscoe encourages us to believe that God's Word will always find good soil. It's up to us to take advantage of every opportunity so that the fields will be ready for someone to come along and harvest to the glory of God.

The Characteristics of a Follower, Part 2

Stuart Briscoe

Series: Brave Enough to Follow

He was full of himself, and always the first to talk. He was also passionate, loyal, and hungry to learn. He wasn’t perfect—far from it. In other words, Simon Peter was just like us. It was only when he abandoned his old life to follow Jesus that he began to be transformed. Jesus makes the same offer to us: Leave your old life and follow Me! You may be telling yourself that Jesus can’t love you because you aren’t good enough, don’t know the Bible well enough, or don’t have a spotless past. Look at Peter! You are exactly the kind of person Jesus loves. 

Stuart gives a wonderful “before and after” illustration of how God can transform you when you bravely step out of your comfort zone.

Clothed with Power

Stuart Briscoe

Series: Believing What We Believe

Before the day of Pentecost, the disciples were in the middle of a faith crisis. They were broken after seeing Jesus crucified, they lost their purpose. But part of God's divine plan was for the Holy Spirit to come and empower the disciples to go out into the world and launch the great commission.

What was this day like for the disciples and what does it mean for us? We know it was spectacular and it forever changed the disciples. Peter, who couldn't even speak about Jesus to a girl a month earlier, was now emboldened to speak with authority to 3,000 listeners who came to believe in Christ.

In Clothed with Power, Stuart Briscoe talks about how the day of Pentecost marks a crucial turning point for the disciples as they came to truly believe what they believed..

What is God using to chisel you into the image of Christ? Will you lie still in His hand and let Him do it? 

For Jeremiah, God was using his ministry partner, Baruch, to chisel and hammer him into shape. Jeremiah, too, was chiseling Baruch. Without the encouragement of the other, neither would have had faith enough to finish when their ministry got difficult. 

In this message, Jill describes how we can learn to work with and celebrate the differences between us and the people in our lives.

Great Is Thy Faithfulness - Morning by Morning, Part 2

Jill Briscoe

Series: Faith Enough to Finish

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.

Scripture: Lamentations 3:19 - 3:33

Faith Requires More than a Little Effort

Stuart Briscoe

Series: Keep the Faith

The letter to the Hebrews, as is common with New Testament epistles, having dealt with many deep theological issues, is brought to a conclusion with many essential, practical instructions. A healthy reminder that faith is not just a matter of belief—it involves behavior, too. 

Scripture: Hebrews 12:14 - 12:29

Discipline - Who Needs It?

Stuart Briscoe

Series: Keep the Faith

The contemporary debate on discipline has led to a dramatic decrease in child abuse and an equally dramatic increase in ill-disciplined children and many attendant social ills. But we must understand the significant role discipline plays in spiritual experience.

Growing Weary and Losing Heart

Stuart Briscoe

Series: Keep the Faith

Various metaphors have been used to describe the Christian life. Some see it as a war to be fought, others as a party to be enjoyed, others as a task to be completed, and still others as a race to be run. The writer of Hebrews chooses the race metaphor.

Scripture: Hebrews 12:1 - 12:3
