Jesus Is Playful, Part 2

Pete Briscoe

Series: Everyday Jesus

Can you imagine Jesus smiling, laughing, and enjoying some casual time with His disciples? Or do you think He was always serious? Some people are convinced that Jesus never had any fun and was somber all the time.

If you believe this and you limit your perception of Jesus to a stern teacher, then your walk with Him can become stiff and rigid. But when you look at the Gospels, you can see how Jesus loved to smile, laugh, and share joyful moments with His disciples and everyone He encountered.

In this message, Pete Briscoe shows us how Jesus had a playful side to His character. If your life with Jesus has stiffened, He can’t wait to bring joy and laughter back into your life!

A Limited Experience of Jesus

Pete Briscoe

Series: Everyday Jesus

How do you like to spend time with Jesus? Maybe it’s through the study of theology, music, the arts, in solitude, or maybe in nature. But here’s another question to ponder: How willing are you to experience Him in everyday ways?

The truth is, our experience of Jesus is limited mostly by the limits we place on Him. If we insist Jesus must interact with us through one specific way, we’re missing out on the incredible things He has for us.

In this message, Pete Briscoe points out an aspect of Jesus’ character that proves just how much He desires you to know Him in rich, creative, and diverse ways.

Scripture: John 1:35 - 1:39

Teach Us to Pray, Part 2

Jill Briscoe

Series: Let's Talk

While here on earth, Jesus himself sought communion with God through prayer. His disciples were to do likewise. He gave us a pattern to follow. For those who ask, seek, and knock, God is more than willing to answer. He is even more willing than friends or an earthly father, as Jesus explains through the parables. But the Christian's prayer requests need to be in line with Jesus' model prayer.

Jill Briscoe

Series: Let's Talk

One of the things that matters most to Jesus is our personal relationship with Him. This matters to Him even when it doesn't matter to us! He offers the human race an incredible invitation. He says, "Let's talk." What does this mean? It involves listening to His Word and responding in prayer.

Jesus Cured the Sick, Part 2

Stuart Briscoe

Series: Finding Healing

There are many instances in Scripture where Jesus cured the sick—physically and spiritually. Can we expect that same kind of healing? Why are some people healed while others are not?

These are important questions worthy of study, but another question that is equally important to ask is: why did Jesus perform miracles in the first place? Too often we have an inaccurate understanding of why Jesus heals. We’re so desperate with our self-interests that we miss the point of his healings—the true significance.

In this message by Stuart Briscoe, we learn what Jesus was trying to illustrate with miracle healings and discover the hope we have in overcoming our troubles and ailments.

Miraculous Healing

Stuart Briscoe

Series: Finding Healing

We’re hungry for spectacular healing in our lives—for God to take away our infirmities in a moment’s work.

For 38 years the crippled man lay on his filthy mat near the pool of Bethesda hoping to be healed when the water stirred. Jesus sought him out and asked him, “Do you want to get well?” On the surface, this might seem like an odd question, but maybe Jesus was getting at something richly profound.

In this message taught from John 5:1-15, Stuart Briscoe discusses how when Jesus performs a spectacular healing miracle, he heals so much more than just our bodies.

Scripture: John 5:1 - 5:15

Stuart Briscoe

Series: God Has a Plan - and We're Part of It

What Happens at the End? Part 2

Pete Briscoe

Series: How the Story Ends

Have you ever played the “Would you rather...” game? It’s where you’re given two less than appealing situations and pick which you’d rather experience. For example, would you rather walk over hot coals or stand on a fire ant mound for 10 minutes? Usually neither option sounds inviting.

In Daniel 11 we learn about some ugly end of time details that ultimately describe genocide against Christians. In this message Pete Briscoe teaches about this extraordinary and terrifying future event and why you can be confident about the glorious outcome for believers who persevere.

This Is Our Future

Pete Briscoe

Series: How the Story Ends

There’s often debate about whether to read Scripture as literal or symbolic. In Daniel 11, we don’t have to debate because all that was predicted 367 years before it happened in the Middle East and northern Africa came true with amazing accuracy. But it doesn’t end there. The chapter continues to predict events that have yet to take place—horrific events against Christians that will usher in a terrible season of persecution. This is our future, and we can bank on it happening just as it’s described.

In this message Pete Briscoe shares troubling news of events yet to happen but also shows us why we can put our fears aside—even when clouds of persecution overshadow Christians throughout the world.

Scripture: Daniel 11:1 - 11:35

God Will Keep His Promise

Pete Briscoe

Series: How the Story Ends

Have you ever been promised something that seemed too good to be true? As we struggle through trials we can lose sight of God’s future promise that someday believers will inherit the Kingdom of God.

In this message Pete Briscoe helps us understand what we’ve been invited to when we say “yes” to Jesus. Being a child of God doesn’t guarantee us a ride on “easy street,” but we have reason to be encouraged that the tough ride will be well worth it in the end.

Hanging in There

In this message Pete Briscoe teaches from Daniel 7 to help us through the struggle of trying to understand God's eternal plan and how to persevere until He decides to end the game of life.

The Minute Trap

Jill Briscoe

Series: Entrapment

Have you planned your funeral? Few of us have. We like to think of death as something far off in the future. Then once we do acknowledge death, sometimes we fall into "You Only Live Once" thinking and fill our time with whatever pleases us. But God never promised us a long life! He has our days numbered, and only He knows when that number is up and we'll be called to be with Him.

In this message, Jill Briscoe cautions us to avoid the "Minute Trap" and offers us a better perspective on what this life really is and how we should use the time God has given us.

The Mouth Trap

Jill Briscoe

Series: Entrapment

We've all been on both sides of hurtful words. We've insulted and been insulted, gossiped and been gossiped about. We've spoken words that have been obscene, profane, idle, or unkind. It's no wonder the Bible is full of references to the tongue—so much destruction and yet so much encouragement, all from one little member of the body! 

In this message, Jill Briscoe gives us an acrostic of "tongue" with examples of the tongue's destructive characteristics, as well as their opposites, so we can avoid the "Mouth Trap."

The Money Trap

We live in a culture that encourages greed. We feel the need to "keep up with the Joneses" and own things that we don't necessarily want or need. We are lured in by the "greed cheese" that Satan puts in the "Money Trap." But everything we have isn't even ours—it all belongs to God, and He entrusts us with what He knows we can handle. 

In this message, Jill Briscoe teaches about the role money should play in our lives and gives us practical and challenging advice on how we should view and be good stewards of money.

In this message, Jill Briscoe shows us how the troubles and pain in our lives are actually a way God molds us into Christ-like people.

Giant Temptation comes to all of us. All of us know him. He knows us—he knows when our guard is up, and he knows when we’re feeling lazy. It’s in our times of laziness that we’re faced with temptations that we’re not prepared for, and we, like David, have to choose whether to go along with the giant of temptation or to get off the rooftop. 

Have you experienced a time when you've failed to overcome a temptation? Jill Briscoe shows us that the value of David's life story is not only that it shows man's great sin, but that it shows God's even greater forgiveness and grace.

Pete Briscoe

Series: Identity Defined

Suffering is inevitable, but when it comes, do you protest and ask, "How could God let this happen to me?" What if, instead of protesting, we embraced suffering? The concept is countercultural, but a powerful thing happens when we embrace suffering—Christ is revealed through us.

How will Christ express Himself as you resist the desire to run from suffering and embrace your difficult circumstance?

You Are a Living Saint

Pete Briscoe

Series: Identity Defined

We tend to believe we're "sinners saved by grace." While it's true that we are born sinners, we're in error if, as Christians, we continue to claim that identity. Falsely believing we're sinners, only leads to a cycle of sinful tendencies. Pete reminds us that in Christ, we are no longer sinners—we are saints!

Will you accept you're "a saint who sometimes sins," or will you continue to believe you're still just a sinner?

Blessed Are the Peacemakers, Part 2

Jill Briscoe

Series: Solid Ground

You can't be a peacemaker if you don't have peace with Jesus, the Prince of Peace. We've all heard this before, but do we really understand what that means and how to practice it in our lives?

Peace, Joy, and Hope, Part 2

Stuart Briscoe

Series: Perfect Peace

So often when we talk of peace, we think of it in terms of resolving a difficult situation. The biblical understanding of peace goes much deeper than that; and thankfully so, because the reality is that we’ll never be free from hostile environments and stressful situations.

The Apostle Paul knew that and wanted us to understand the unexplainable peace that is available to believers through Jesus.

In this message, Stuart Briscoe teaches from Romans 5 to explain the blessing of peace for those justified by faith. A peace unrelated to our external circumstances but related to our internal relationship with our Creator.

Scripture: Romans 5:1 - 5:21
