Passion – Part 1

Today on Bold Steps … Pastor Mark Jobe challenges you to rise above the difficulties and to trust God in helping you live your best life. We begin a new series called, Rise: Live Your Best Life Yet.  Your best life isn’t going to happen by accident.  And yes, it may be risky, but you have to be intentional about where you’re going. These involve important traits that will keep you from being pulled down: Passion, Courage, Confidence, and Integrity.  We’re going to be contrasting two individuals who both had humble beginnings, but one rose and the other sank … David and Saul. And how the attitude of these two men made all the difference.Support the show: https://www.moodyradio.org/programs/bold-steps-with-dr-mark-jobe/See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Your Spiritual Wake Up Call: Laodicea – Part 1

Have you lost the fire in your faith?  It’s not a trivial question. Today Pastor Mark Jobe sounds the alarm on lukewarm faith as we begin a 2-part Bold Steps message In Revelation 3 called Your Spiritual Wake Up Call. God revealed things that the 7 Churches in Revelation were doing right and what they were doing wrong. The church at Laodicea had a big problem and He compared their spirituality to the condition of their water... warm and bland. Join us to learn how to wake from being luke-warm.Support the show: https://www.moodyradio.org/programs/bold-steps-with-dr-mark-jobe/See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

The Church at Sardis – Part 2

Today on Bold Steps, we’re getting some powerful insight on how to deepen our relationship with Christ, and avoid empty religion. We’re picking up where we ended last time in our lesson from Revelation chapter 3, taking a closer look at the Church at Sardis, one of the 7 churches God confronted through the prophet John.  We’re finding that Sardis looked good on the outside … but once you pop the hood to look beneath the surface, things were spiritually dead.  And so the Lord gave John 5 commands to share with the Church at Sardis to confront the deadness and make a recovery.  Pastor Mark Jobe continues to outline these relevant commands for us today.Support the show: https://www.moodyradio.org/programs/bold-steps-with-dr-mark-jobe/See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

The Church at Sardis – Part 1

The Bible warns us that having religion isn’t the same as having relationship with God.  We’re unpacking that today on Bold Steps. If you want to start a lively debate, just start talking about the end times.  There’s been so much discussion and disagreement about this topic through the years … but today, we open the book of Revelation, the authority on the end times.  This book has plenty of prophecy and mystery, but God also has a lot to say to us right now. John on the island of Patmos, writes to these 7 churches in Asia- which, really represent the types and conditions of churches in all generations…etc. “The point is... we NEED to be ready”.Support the show: https://www.moodyradio.org/programs/bold-steps-with-dr-mark-jobe/See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Prayer 101 – Part 1

We’ve all heard it tons of times ... did Jesus give us the Lord’s Prayer for us just to recite over and over, or are there more to His words? Today we are talking about prayer in our Bold Steps  series Deeper: Beyond Shallow Spirituality. Many people don’t know how to pray. It feels like such an obstacle to overcome to have a memorized, eloquent dialogue with God. There are so many who repeat the Lord’s prayer as a meaningless string of words over and over. Jesus gave us a pattern, not a prayer to repeat.Support the show: https://www.moodyradio.org/programs/bold-steps-with-dr-mark-jobe/See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Do You See It Yet? - Part 1

Today... what happens when you capture a burden that is greater than you. We’re talking about having vision today on Bold Steps. Can you see the calling God has placed on your life? We thought this would be a great time to revisit this concept here at the beginning of the new year as a kind of “re-set”. Pastor Mark Jobe says that significant things don’t happen until someone has a vision of the potential of what could be. Most of us are not living in the purpose and call that God has for us. Most are not living in full potential and have clear vision of future and our calling and gifting. Most only know the present and past, but we haven’t seen it yet. He'll talk about 4 things that need to happen in the making of a change agent and gaining that future vision.Support the show: https://www.moodyradio.org/programs/bold-steps-with-dr-mark-jobe/See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Real Transformation - Part 3

Today on Bold Steps, Pastor Mark Jobe helps us to better understand our true identity … in God. We’ve reached the final part of a keystone message about our true nature, and the identity we’ve been given by God.  No one has the ability to change themselves. While we can take steps toward "self-improvement", ultimately real transformation only happens with God's help and we find our true identity in Him. Join us for this final discussion based in 2 Peter chapter 1 and possibly learn what your next big step will be.Support the show: https://www.moodyradio.org/programs/bold-steps-with-dr-mark-jobe/See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Real Transformation - Part 2

Are you leaning into the God-given power already inside you?  Or searching for strength somewhere else? That’s the topic today on Bold Steps … Today, we’re continuing a lesson about the power and promises we’ve been given by God … and it’s sad but true that so many Christians today are trying to solve their problems by changing what’s around them … rather than tapping into what’s already inside of them. Some Christians are wasting their time trying every ‘self-help’ trick in the book but … real change is only found in the presence and power of God.Support the show: https://www.moodyradio.org/programs/bold-steps-with-dr-mark-jobe/See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Real Transformation - Part 1

Today on Bold Steps, Pastor Mark Jobe helps us tap into the spiritual strength that every Christian has been given, but perhaps been overlooking. In today’s self-help culture, we’re hooked on the idea of self-betterment and doing all we can to improve ourselves.  And that may be fine and good, but you’re going to remind us that, spiritually, if we are believers and have the Holy Spirit, then we already have God’s DIVINE POWER inside of us to start living for God RIGHT NOW. It’s a matter of accessing this power that you ALREADY HAVE in Christ to start to live for Him.  We’re going to talk about what this POWER is and then get into the PROMISES that come with it.Support the show: https://www.moodyradio.org/programs/bold-steps-with-dr-mark-jobe/See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

My Next Big Step - Part 1

Today on Bold Steps … Pastor Mark Jobe begins a lesson about how to take your next step … with God. Getting directions used to be a bit of chore … but nowadays, we have our own personal GPS built right into our phones.  No matter where we’re trying to go, we get real-time directions and updates on traffic or detours.  Perhaps you’ve tried this, but one of the fun things you can do is customize the voice of your directions.  Some apps have “celebrity voice packs” featuring ... Mr. T, Darth Vader, Elvis and many more … and who knows, maybe we’ll see a Mark Jobe option?Wouldn’t it be great to have a GPS for our spiritual life? Just plug in the instructions and there would be a voice saying, take this path, listen to THIS voice, read THIS scripture now ... a guidance system to help you get to the next level.  We may not have an electronic device for this, but we DO have the Holy Spirit.

Releasing the Power of Resurrection - Part 2

As a Christian, you’ve been given the power to awaken others to the spirit of God … but are you actually using this power?  Find out today on Bold Steps with Pastor Mark Jobe. Last time, Mark began a message about Releasing the Power of Resurrection … explaining how every Christian has been given the unique privilege to be a carrier of God’s redeeming power … and to awaken others to that same gift, bringing light into the dark places of life.  But even though we have this privilege, we sometimes let it go to waste … forgetting or simply overlooking the resurrection power God is offering us.  That’s why Mark is laying out four important steps we need to take to make sure we don’t waste this incredible gift.  The first point he makes, is that we can’t let other people’s issues be an obstacle to our own connection to God.  And to continue his lesson, we’re looking at a story in the book of Mark chapter 5, now in verse 35 … where Jesus has been called to the house of a man named Jairus, whose young daughter was dying.  But on His way to the house of Jairus, Jesus is interrupted by a woman seeking her own miracle.See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Let Your Praise Go First - Part 3

Returning Back to the Father’s Heart - Part 2

Today on Bold Steps … Pastor Mark Jobe explores the parable of The Prodigal Son … and what it tells us about God’s response we return to Him. We’re continuing a message about what it means to bring ourselves back to the heart of God.  It’s a lesson from the book of Luke, where Jesus gave a parable about two sons, and the different choices they made with their inheritance.  One son stayed at home with his father to continue working and growing responsibly … and the other son took all of his inheritance and left home, journeying off to another land where he ended up squandering all the wealth he had been given.  In desperation, the prodigal son found himself looking for work … and that’s where today’s lesson picks up.  If you have your Bible handy, go ahead and open to Luke chapter 15, starting in verse 15, for today’s Bold Steps lesson, titled … Returning Back to the Father’s Heart …See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Find relief today… on Bold Steps. We concluding our series, Identity Theft. A powerful look at the traps in our lives that we allow to define our worth and value. We pick up where we left off last time with the lie that says, I’m only somebody if I can earn it by my accomplishments and how others see me.

The Position Trap - Part 1

Are you driven by achievement? or do you chase recognition over truth about yourself? Today on Bold Steps, how God gives real and lasting value and worth and a way out of… the position trap. Luke 4:9-11 says, The devil led him to Jerusalem and had him stand on the highest point of the temple. “If you are the Son of God,” he said, “throw yourself down from here.10 For it is written: “‘He will command his angels concerning you to guard you carefully; 11 they will lift you up in their hands, so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.’ This temptation isn’t about Jesus saving Himself, it’s about being tempted to elevate Himself to a position of authority before the right time. Our focus will be about how you see yourself and where you get your value from. The “Position Trap” says that you get this by being honored by other people and proving it with your actions and achievements. This goes for “religious” people too—it’s NOT about proving your spirituality! It affects every area of our life and can seriously trip us up in our walk with God.See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Much of that loneliness comes from feelings of isolation and feeling like they don’t measure up. That’s an ID problem!
