This week on Bold Steps, we’re wrapping up our series, Be the Change and for the next two days, we’ll be discussing A Winning Attitude. Pastor Mark Jobe likes to say that … your attitude determines your altitude. And THAT is what he'll be speaking about today. . . a right way of thinking in life and how it affects our spiritual life. Attitude maintains strength to keep going. You can do something today to change your life right now … because you alone are responsible for your attitude. The message is titled, A Winning Attitude from the book of Hebrews chapter 12.
When we have areas of scarcity in our lives … it might be time for us to stop and consider the cause. And as we continue our Bold Steps study from our series called, Be the Change … Pastor Mark Jobe is going to be showing us how we can discover … and apply the principles of sowing and reaping into our lives.
Are abundance and generosity really tied together? How can you activate the favor of God so that your life will overflow with abundance in the lives of those around you? Those are the questions Mark will address from the book of Second Corinthians.
Over the past few days on Bold Steps, we’ve been talking about how our finances can represent spiritual patterns … and issues. In fact, there are over 2,350 verses in the Bible related specifically to money and material possessions. So, it’s safe to say that these issues are important to God! But, we need to also be careful to not swing to the other side and say that if we had a million dollars, we’d be super spiritual and have no problems … Pastor Mark Jobe says that money is simply a tool. And what you choose to do with that tool, can bring a blessing … or a curse in your life. But hopefully, after today’s message, you’ll walk away with some powerful principles that change your life … and not just your checkbook. Today’s message comes from the book of 2 Corinthians and it’s called, Breaking the Spirit of Mammon.
We’re moving forward in our study about learning to take action … and make those difficult changes in our lives. And in today’s Bold Steps message, Pastor Mark Jobe is going to focus on … The Power of the First. He's addressing a couple of points that will help us funnel the favor of God into our lives.
Today’s Bold Steps message is about finances and when it comes to finding information on financial planning, there are a lot of books out there. But Pastor Mark Jobe is here to suggest that when it comes to managing our money and possessions, we should probably just open our Bibles … A lot of people don’t equate the Bible with financial planning, but it actually says a lot about how we are to manage and steward our money and possessions. Jesus taught us that it’s a spiritual issue. And to Be the Change means having a strong Godly influence in our families … and to those we come into contact with and ultimately the world. God has much to say to us about how we are to live differently. Today’s message called, The Power of the First from the book of Malachi, chapter 3.
