Today on Bold Steps, Pastor Mark Jobe shows us how to test whether something in the spiritual realm is from God or the evil one. Have you ever noticed that everything that has value has an equivalent forgery? Money. Jewelry. IDs. And the same is true in the spiritual realm, as well. So, how do we guard ourselves against fraud? …When it comes to identifying what is of the light (from God) and what comes from the darkness (not from God) so we don’t get tripped up in our walk, you have to develop a sense of discernment and that’s what we’re going to be talking about today.
Today on Bold Steps, Pastor Mark Jobe reminds us about The Power of God’s Love as we’re continuing a series called Contrast … and opening to the book of 1st John to learn more about how this great love causes us to not be dominated by sin and also how it causes us to want to walk in obedience, loving others in return.
Today on Bold Steps with Mark Jobe, we’ll discover … The Power of God’s Love. There is nothing more transformative in a person’s life than when they realize God loves them … and they allow The Power of God’s Love to work through them. And as we continue our study of First John, we’re going to be witnessing that love and power through the eyes of the Apostle John. He knew about this love in an up close and personal way and through his writings, John encourages us to continue growing so that we can be more like Jesus.
Today on Bold Steps with Mark Jobe, we’ll discover how we can remain firm in Christ during seasons of testing. As Christians, we know that sometimes our faith is going to be under attack … and that’s a reality that seems more prevalent with each passing year. As we move forward in our study of the book of First John, we’re going to learn why we have been Anointed to Stand Firm … no matter what we’re going through.
Today on Bold Steps with Pastor Mark Jobe … we’ll learn how to stand firm in a culture that’s increasingly going against the things of God. We’re almost two full months into the new year … So, how are those resolutions coming along? Well, if you’ve eased off, you’re not the only one. According to statistics … 80% of all those January resolutions fail by the second week of February. And Mark, today we’re going to discover that good habits … especially those that are drastically different from your typical lifestyle are hard to start … and even harder to keep!
