Disciples of Jesus

Stuart Briscoe

The technology and conveniences we enjoy in our world can distract us from God. The modern culture tells us one thing, but Jesus certainly tells us another, and therein lies the problem. If we don't know what Jesus says about how His disciples are to live or understand who we are as the Church, we are bound to follow culture instead of Christ. You can't really know who you are if you don't know where you come from!

In this profound and practical series by Stuart, he takes you deep into a study of the Gospel of Matthew, which walks alongside Jesus and shares not just what He did, but what He told his closest friends about how to live life. Prayer, obedience, finances, and authority are just a few of the topics that this excellent series touches on. Learn what Jesus expects of followers in our 21st century culture!

Messages From This Series:

  1. 1. Jesus the Disciple Maker

    Stuart Briscoe

    As a follower of Jesus, you have been given a role to play in God’s eternal purposes—His plan to establish His Kingdom through the Church. Sounds exciting, doesn’t it? But what’s your job exactly?

    In this message, Stuart Briscoe explains how when you spend time with Jesus and follow His lead, He will reveal His intentions for your life. You’ll discover how your life can have purpose, value, and an eternal impact for His Kingdom. 

    Scripture:  Matthew 1:1 - 4:11

  2. 2. The Kingdom of Heaven

    Stuart Briscoe

    We live in times of suffering, hardship, and chaos, and it was this same troubled world that Jesus entered into more than 2,000 years ago.

    At the start of His ministry, Jesus proclaimed, “The Kingdom of heaven is near!”—a phrase that bears significant meaning for our troubled world.

    In this message, Stuart Briscoe teaches us how these powerful words of Jesus are relevant in today’s world and shares the greatest hope of all for our hurting and broken world.

    Scripture:  Matthew 4:12 - 4:17

  3. 3. The Call to Discipleship

    Stuart Briscoe

    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.

    Scripture:  Matthew 4:18 - 4:22

  4. 4. Kingdom Living

    Stuart Briscoe

    Do you know who you are as a Christian? Have you been searching for your identity in your career, social status, or image but feel nothing but emptiness inside?

    If you want to know who you are as a believer and experience the fullness of Life available to you in Christ, this message by Stuart Briscoe will help you understand your identity as Jesus defines it. 

    Scripture:  Matthew 5:1 - 5:12

  5. 5. How Disciples Pray

    Stuart Briscoe

    Prayer is an essential part of the Christian life. Jesus made that clear throughout His ministry, as He both actively participated in it and frequently talked about it with His disciples.

    But how exactly should we pray? And will God even answer?

    In this message, Stuart Briscoe walks you through the Lord’s Prayer in the Sermon on the Mount to explain how to pray and what to pray. This message will give you the confidence you need to step into a vibrant life of prayer and intimacy with Jesus.

    Scripture:  Matthew 6:5 - 6:15

  6. 6. Disciples and Priorities

    Stuart Briscoe

    Where are you investing most of your time and energy? Maybe you fill your days with social activities, chasing career goals, or sitting in front of technology, and, at the end of the day, you wonder if what you did had any real value or significance.

    In this message, Stuart Briscoe encourages you to evaluate your priorities and ensure you’re placing one thing above everything else. You’ll learn how your days can be filled with meaningful, eternally valuable experiences that will impact everything else in your life. 

    Scripture:  Matthew 6:16 - 6:34

  7. 7. Authority and Obedience

    Stuart Briscoe

    Do you want to grow in your faith? Have you been striving for growth but feel like it’s not happening?

    As Christians, it’s natural for us to desire to mature in our faith, so we dive into Scripture, sermons, books, and devotionals with eager anticipation of the growth we’ll experience. But, in this message, Stuart Briscoe reminds us that what’s important is not that we’re receiving teaching but that we’re responding to it.

    Stuart shares what we’re supposed to do with Christ’s teaching in His Word, and he explains how we can tap into the power we’ve been given to obediently respond.

    Scripture:  Matthew 7:21 - 7:29

  8. 8. Disciples and the Church

    Stuart Briscoe

    When Jesus was teaching His disciples about the Church, He said to Peter, “On this rock I will build my church.” From this, we learn two important things about the Church: that it belongs to Christ and that He is going to build it.

    But as a modern day disciple, Jesus has a very intentional role for you to play in His mission to build His church. Do you know what your calling is?

    In this message, Stuart Briscoe takes us through Jesus’ instructions to His disciples about their role in the Church, and you’ll discover what your calling is in God’s magnificent work.

    Scripture:  Matthew 16:13 - 16:20

  9. 9. The Disciples' Marching Orders

    Stuart Briscoe

    When you read through the Gospels, you may notice Jesus gave His disciples some fairly tall orders. But if you’re feeling overwhelmed at the thought of completing what seems like a laundry list of tasks, you’re missing a key ingredient of the Christian life.

    In this message, Stuart Briscoe walks through the marching orders Jesus gave His disciples before He ascended into heaven. Then he takes us a step farther to reveal Jesus’ plan for enabling and empowering us to live in the way He’s called us to. 

    Scripture:  Matthew 28:16 - 28:20
