Repentance. You don't hear much about it these days, do you? Well…you're about to! Moody Bible Institute presents Mark Jobe. Our teacher is the 10th president of Moody Bible Institute. He's a man on a mission—and a man with a vision. What do I mean by that? Mark sat down with Chris Brooks for a recent edition of Equipped—a signature Moody Radio program. And in the course of that conversation, Mark shared some of his personal passions—the dreams he believes God is calling him to pursue as president of Moody. But Mark also spoke about the vision he has for "the school that D.L. Moody founded." We're going to pause right now before today's message segment and get to know our teacher, Mark Jobe…just a bit better, and then right on to the rekindling your spiritual passion.
So if our passion for God has declined….what exactly is the road back? Just ahead…Dr. Mark Jobe with a critical message. Our teacher, Dr. Mark Jobe, is the new president of Moody Bible Institute. He brings with him a deep passion for the local church. No surprise, as he’s been a pastor for nearly three decades. And Mark is honest enough to admit that it hasn’t all been easy! In fact, much of his ministry has been an uphill climb. I want you to listen to a conversation Moody Radio’s Chris Brooks had with Mark Jobe. Chris hosts the weekday call-in favorite known as Equipped. As we play this clip, listen to the sense of honesty and humility that bubbles to the surface.
How well do you know Jesus Christ? No matter what stage you are in your understanding I guarantee you will be able to go deeper. Join Dr. Mark Jobe now with part two of a message originally given at our annual Founders Week Bible Conference.
Knowing Christ is our topic today with our teacher, Dr. Mark Jobe. We're especially excited to have you get to know Mark in a short interview segment prior to taking some Bold Steps from God's Word in your life. Originally given at our annual Founder's Week conference let's get into the Word to Know Christ.
We need to continue taking some bold steps in maintaining our joy. If you've been with us the last week you know that choosing JOY is a choice that you and I make. We learned last Friday, when it comes to choosing joy, "practice makes perfect." Let's go back to Philippians 1. We'll discover that you can be doing all the right things for God with the wrong heart. Time for a heart check, here's Dr. Jobe.
Joy. It sounds simple. It sounds happy. But did you know that real joy actually requires maintenance? When it comes to Joy we are about to discover that "practice makes perfect." Philippians 1 is our text and our teacher, Dr. Mark Jobe will help us get started with practice!
Question: Are you at a stagnant place in your spiritual journey? Pastor Mark Jobe wants you to know—God is committed to getting you and I to a growth state. We're headed today to one of the most encouraging passages in all of Scripture. Please listen.
Joy is a choice. We’re back to the book of Philippians looking at four characteristics of people who don’t quit. Nobody likes a quitter, right? But we've all been guilty of quitting. Have you chosen joy today as you endure or would you rather give up because you're just not happy with the situation? Pastor Mark reminds us that joy is not happiness. It’s something much more profound. Let's take some bold steps and find out more.
We're jumping right into the middle of Lydia's story. Maybe you met her before in your study of the Scriptures in the book of Acts. Well this is a lady whose life offers some real clues to you and me about choosing joy as we continue our series.
Closed doors. You know what we're talking about. We've all had them slam in our face. But Dr. Mark Jobe has a strong word of hope for you today. We're going to take some bold steps together as we learn that Joy…is a choice!
A hardened heart…what could be more dangerous? Welcome to the bold teaching ministry of Dr. Mark Jobe, president of the Moody Bible Institute, and founding pastor of New Life Community Church in Chicago. As our Red Hot Faith series continues in Hebrews 3, we're learning the importance of having friends who encourage us daily in our Christian walk.
It’s a fact of life. In the physical world, our temperatures fluctuate. Some days we run hot…and some days…downright cool. Same is true spiritually. So…when it comes to keeping your spiritual temperature high—who’s responsible? Let's find out together with Dr. Mark Jobe.
“How Bad Do You Want it?” is our message title. We’ve been tracking along with Pastor Mark Jobe in his observation that a “Red Hot-Faith” will lead you to what he calls, “Audacious Boldness.” And there’s a third characteristic of a red-hot faith we’ll uncover together in just a moment with further study of 2 Kings 2. Let's study together!
Is it possible that you and I may be a lot like Dr. Mark Jobe's dog? We obey some of the time but not all of the time? We claim we want to be used by God….but honestly, we don’t really want it bad enough. We obey when we want to—when it’s convenient for US. Let's move right to 2nd Kings 1 as Dr. Jobe helps us maintain a redhot faith!
We're going to look at a number of qualities that clue us in on "How to be a Contagious Person." Dr. Mark Jobe says among those qualities: generosity…a willingness to share the gospel…and a strong relationship with other believers.
