Ending Favoritism, 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.

Who Receives the Glory?, 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?

We Are Perfectly Incapable, 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.

Effective Where You Are, Part 2, What Will Jesus Do?  

Before we knew Jesus, we were living among the dead, but after Jesus gets a hold of us, we are alive, and our life is transformed anew! But what will Jesus do with our new life?

We may expect an extravagant calling - maybe to an unreached village abroad or to the alleys of an inner city. However, Jesus calls us to a place that may surprise us. What will Jesus do in us as we take Jesus to our most personal mission field?

Eligible for Redemption, Part 2, What Will Jesus Do?  

We tend to believe the lie that the worse your sin is, the less eligible for redemption you are. Are you struggling to accept Christ's redemption because of your sin? When we feel beyond God's redemption, Jesus has good news for us.

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, 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?

Love Your Enemies, What Will Jesus Do?  

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.

Extending Grace to Rule-Breakers, What Will Jesus Do?  

The Church is called to love a world of rule-breakers. But are we rule-keepers unable to love the rule-breakers? Jesus' way of loving rule-breakers may shock us.

In this message, Pete explores how Jesus can love them through us.

I'm Awe Inspiring, Facing Jesus in Your Loneliness  

Life is hard, isn't it? Each of us has our own burdens to deal with, and these problems become the focus of our attention. Pete uses Isaiah 40 to explain God's heart for us in these times. He provides comfort in reminding us that God is bigger than our problems. Not only that, but in His majesty, He still wants to cradle us in our times of weakness.

The Troubled Heart, Part 2, Facing Jesus in Your Loneliness  

The Psalmist openly admits that in his heart he is experiencing "intense inner turmoil." He is feeling lonely, pressured and concerned. So he turns his thoughts to the Lord, refreshing his mind and laying his concerns out in prayer.

Great Is Thy Faithfulness - Morning by Morning, Part 2, 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.

Be Wise About the Whatevers of God, Be Wise  

 God's will, God's Word, and God's worship may sound a little spiritual to some people. But Paul is extremely practical when he turns his attention to "whatever you do." That just about covers everything!

Be Wise About the Worship of God, Be Wise  

Someone has said, "Too many Christians worship their work, work at their play, and play at their worship." Let's talk about worship with particular reference to psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs.

Be Wise About the Word of God, Part 2, Be Wise  

It is a well-established fact among believers that "man cannot live by bread alone," but that the Word "from the mouth of God" is vitally necessary (Mt. 4:4). However, it is equally well established that many believers have inadequate appetites for and diets of the Word of God.

Be Wise About the Will of God, Be Wise  

When Peter was awakened by the angel in prison, he woke to a new life. Paul says believers have a similar experience - it's like "rising from the dead." But this new life requires care. It takes a lot of wisdom.
