Is God calling you to break out of the old way of doing things, and start something new? Find out today on Bold Steps … with Pastor Mark Jobe! Last time, we began a message all about identity … and why it’s so important to know who you are to God. We’re taking a look at the life of Gideon, from the book of Judges chapter 6, and learning how even at his lowest point, Gideon was able to find revival and purpose by rediscovering his true identity … with God. It’s a relevant lesson for anyone who may be struggling with questions about their purpose, their potential, or perhaps just wondering … Where do I fit in?
Do you really know who you are? That’s the question, today on Bold Steps with Pastor Mark Jobe. Mark is going to be talking about one of his favorite topics when it comes to following Jesus and that’s identity. Who we are in Christ Jesus. We were able to catch up with him at another Moody Bible Institute President’s Chapel where he spoke to students about this topic … and it is very important, especially for younger people on a college campus to know who they are. College campuses are one of the loneliest places in the country! Much of that loneliness comes from feelings of isolation and feeling like they don’t measure up. That’s an ID problem! In this message we’ll learn from someone in the Bible who also struggled with identity …. and we’ll see how God was able to meet them in their struggle and establish a clear calling and purpose. Our message is titled Identity Matters.
Today on Bold Steps … Pastor Mark Jobe encourages us to let go of our failures, and let the love of God lead us into new life. We continue our message about overcoming our failures … and running to the presence of Jesus. Sometimes the failures of our past have a way of dragging us down, keeping us trapped in guilt, shame, and the fear of repeating the same mistakes all over again. But when we shift our focus away from ourselves, away from our past, and we put our focus on the love and hope of Jesus Christ … that’s when a real breakthrough begins to take place. The message is titled Jesus Encounters a Shattered Heart.
Today on Bold Steps … Pastor Mark Jobe shows how God can transform a shattered heart. Failure isn’t usually a fun subject. But the truth is we’ve all had failures in our lives. Today we’re going to learn from once of Jesus’ closest friends about what it means to fail repeatedly, but also how to turn away from those potentially life-defining failures and hit the reset button to run towards Jesus instead.
Are you really investing yourself in the worship you give to God? Find out today on Bold Steps with Pastor Mark Jobe. On yesterday’s program, we began a brand-new series called Encounters … Life Defining Moments with Jesus. And to get this series started, Mark began by addressing a very fundamental experience to the Christian faith, and one of the major opportunities we have, every day, for a genuine experience with God … and that’s worship. But as we learned, our worship can either be a true and lavish experience … or it can be forced and cheap.
