On today's Bold Steps program, Pastor Mark Jobe digs into part 2 of "Rediscovering Your Boundaries", from the continuing series, Unstuck, where he challenges you to take a careful look at focusing on your call in life. Maybe you are one that is easily distracted. But that doesn't mean that the distraction needs to hijack the direction of our lives. Be encouraged and tune in for more.
Thank you for stopping by Bold Steps today! Well… let's head over to I Kings 19:15 to "Rediscovering Your Boundaries." And that means—don't take on more than God has called you to do. Thank you for listening to this program and we are so glad you let us know how God is using this rich teaching in your life. Don't forget to check out Dr. Mark Jobe's companion resource available for a gift of any size. It's from Moody Publishers and called, UNSTUCK: Out of Your Cave and Into Your Call.
Unfinished business. I bet you've got some in your life. We're in the middle of a message series that meets us right where we are. For some us—the honest truth is, we're in a cave. We're stuck. And we have no idea out to get idea.
As we're about to learn, looking at the life of Elijah, the Lord directed Elijah to walk out of his cave. But once he was out, Elijah had some unfinished business to attend to. And so do most of us. How do we deal with it? By confronting the very issues that we've been avoiding—running away from. As Pastor Mark puts it, you and I need to "walk toward our unfinished business."
Welcome to Bold Steps and here on the broadcast we've been working our way through a message series titled, "Unstuck." Today, we're sitting down with an Old Testament character who definitely has something new to say to you and me. We're about to learn the need we all have for letting faith in God shape our story. One reason is…we've got a warped identity.
If your life was made into a movie…would it be mostly about you…or about God? It's an important question we'll look at today through the lives of two great Bible characters: Elijah and Gideon. It's all part of our message series titled, "Unstuck" which is leading people to take bold steps that they haven't taken in years….in a move toward getting Unstuck.
Welcome back to the hard-hitting Bible teaching of Dr. Mark Jobe. The Moody Bible Institute campus has enthusiastically welcomed this man as our new president. And if Pastor Mark is new to you-I invite you to just jump on in to our message right now from the life of Elijah. It's about dialing down the outside noise so we can really hear from God.
We've all had the experience of being on a cell phone call…where things got real fuzzy…tough to hear. There's a spiritual parallel here with an important lesson on Bold Steps.
We live in a noisy world don't we? Not just physical sound…but digital distractions.
And if I you and don't hear correctly, we're not going to act correctly.
Our teacher, Dr Mark Jobe, is president of the Moody Bible Institute. Join us for our continued series called, UNSTUCK: Out of Your Cave and Into Your Call.
Last time we were together, Dr. Mark Jobe helped us to reshape our thinking from 1st Kings 3:19 where we saw Elijah suddenly captivated by fear. What are the captivating factors in your life that are likely creating the problem of being stuck and unwilling to serve God? Let's recognize key areas that God nurtured Elijah back to service, just the way he cares for you!
We, as Christians, are a group of people with issues, seeking to follow the teaching of Jesus Christ, to keep us from getting stuck in life. But what if you are feeling stuck? Just not going anywhere for Him? It's time to head back to God's Word and learn more from Elijah in I Kings.
Elijah, right before entering a cave said, “I have had enough!” Do you find yourself stuck? As if you were cowering in a cave of isolation with no way out? There are seven sticking points that keep us cowering in a cave when we should be following God. Find out more on today’s program.
You've felt it before, you've been stuck in one of these areas or perhaps many – physically, emotionally, mentally or spiritually. It is a terrible thing to be stuck or to see a loved one stuck. Let's learn from the life of Elijah over the next several days. Our prayer is that many who listen will get unstuck to obey God and follow His calling for life.
