Are you seeking guidance on how to navigate life's complex decisions? While God calls us to obey all authority, there is one exception. In today’s message, Pastor Mark talks about how you need to obey all authority, except for when the authority is demanding you turn your back on the Lord. We are human, and at times, the directions given by those in power may diverge from God's will. It is during these crucial moments that we must seek His discernment and courageously stand for what is right, just, and aligned with His divine plan. At the end of the day, you must align yourself with the path of the Lord.
As Pastor Mark continues his teaching series through the book of Genesis, he’ll be challenging you to spend intimate time with the Lord on a daily basis. Living in this world is difficult, the only way you can properly serve the Lord is by being in the Word and in prayer along with fellowshipping with other Christians. When people encounter you, do they sense the Spirit of the Lord? When you open your mouth and speak, is it seasoned with grace? You should stand out as a bright light in this very dark and wicked world. Don’t allow the enemy to mold you into another hypocritical Christian. Be molded into the image of Jesus!
Today, Pastor Mark will be encouraging you to serve the Lord with your children and to allow them to see God working in and through your life. Children mostly catch the Bible from their parents, not always by being taught. You have to practice what you preach so that your kids don’t think hypocrisy is normal. One of the most angering things to the Lord is religious hypocrisy. The Lord would rather you be honest about your shortcomings, seek His help, and be cleansed than put on a mask and hide your sin. When you fall, run to the Lord and ask for His power and strength to move forward.
As Pastor Mark continues his teaching series, he’ll be reminding you that it’s the kindness of God that draws men unto repentance. Yes, for some, it’s the fear of Hell and the fear of God’s punishment that gets their attention, but ultimately it’s God’s kindness that causes people to repent and be saved. Don’t allow the enemy to influence you to hit people over the head with the Bible, because that's a good way to cause people to withdraw from you. When you preach the Gospel, always remember that people don’t care what you know, until they know you care.
Today, Pastor Mark will be challenging you to seek after the Lord when trials come your way, running from your problems is not the answer. As a Christian, you have the power of the Holy Spirit to get you through all aspects of this temporal life on Earth. All you have to do is cooperate with Him and follow His lead. Don’t be discouraged when you face hardships or persecutions, because Jesus Himself was persecuted and ultimately tortured and crucified. A servant is not greater than his Master, so if the world hated and persecuted Jesus, they will hate and persecute you. Always remember, God is a God of comfort and peace through it all.
Sin can feel good in the moment when you give in to it. It might even seem like the logical thing to do, and it’s definitely the easy choice to make most of the time. However, as Pastor Mark’s going to point out to you today, it always leads to regret. It leads to suffering and missing out on the blessings God has for you. God has such amazing blessings in store for you and plans to work through your life. But you have to let Him. You have to choose Him. He wants you to make the decisions daily to not give in to the pleasures of the world that go against Him so He can fully work in your life and do amazing things through you.
I love PM and his heart. His stead fast commitment to line by line verse by verse has helped me grow in my daily walk. I attend the church and what you see and hear is what you get. Marks heart is pure he wants to save as many as possible. Great explanation in prophetic stuff. Love it and love PM!

Question: When there are two shows with the same title that both say part 2 on them are they the same show or different ones? I noticed they were on different days too, so I was confused if it was just the same show being posted twice?
