The Cross Roads of Belief

Message Title: The Crossroads of Belief 

Message Truth: Without faith it is impossible to please God.” Hebrews 11:6 

Message Text: Mark 9:14-29 

 I. What Faith Is? Faith is trusting in some authority.  We all live by faith. Biblically, faith is trusting God is who He said He is and can do what He said He can do. Faith is acting like God is telling the truth.

Now faith is the reality of what is hoped for, the proof of what is not seen. (Heb. 11: 1)  

For we walk by faith, not by sight. (2 Cor. 5: 7)  

[Jesus said,] “The one who believes in Me will also do the works that I do. And he will do even greater works than these, because I am going to the Father.” (John 14: 12)  

“For I assure you: If you have faith the size of a mustard seed, you will tell this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.” (Matt. 17: 20)  

If you do not stand firm in your faith, then you will not stand at all. (Isa. 7: 9)  


II. What Faith Does? Moves God to act on His Word.

I don’t understand it…but do you trust the author? Does God have integrity on every subject? 


III. How Faith Works? God acts to our response to truth.  

Christians (as well as everyone else) have a natural tendency to try building a life in which faith is unnecessary. We establish a comfort zone where everything is in our control, but this is not pleasing to God. God will allow things into our lives that drive us to utter dependence upon Him. Then we see His power and His glory. 


“I believe, help me overcome my unbelief” v.24 

“You don’t take advice from a King; you believe and Obey a King.”
