Episode 032: Living a Spirit-Filled Life with Mark Driscoll

Mark Driscoll

When Jesus needed help, he relied on the Holy Spirit. What do you rely on in times of confusion, suffering, and helplessness? Pastor Mark Driscoll is joining the iDisciple Podcast today to teach us how we, like Jesus, can rely on the spirit in times of need.

Mark Driscoll is a Jesus-following, mission-leading, church-serving, people-loving, Bible-preaching pastor and the author of many books, including Real Marriage and Who Do You Think You Are? With a skillful mix of bold presentation, accessible teaching, and unrelenting compassion for those who are hurting the most, Pastor Mark has taken Christianity into cultural corners rarely explored by Evangelicals. He is the pastor of The Trinity Church in Scottsdale, Arizona.

Pastor Mark’s latest book, Spirit-Filled Jesus, takes a deep look at Jesus’ reliance on the Holy Spirit. The book is packed with wisdom from Mark’s thirty years of studying and teaching the bible and is a vital read for believers looking to learn more about Jesus and the Holy Spirit. In this conversation, we’ll walk through some of the topics in the new book and get a better look at how we can tap into the power of the spirit just like Jesus did thousands of years ago.

We hope and pray that this conversation blesses you in times of uncertainty and teaches you how to live a spirit-filled life just like our Lord and Savior!
