Passage: Mark 9:14-29

How are we to have faith in the valleys of life?

  1. Self-sufficiency is a failure of faith
  2. We must cultivate dependent faith.
  3. We must abide in prayer-filled faith
As Christians, we experience highs and lows as we seek to faithfully follow Jesus. In Mark 9:14-29, Jesus descends from the heights of the Mount of Transfiguration down into the shadowy valley of ordinary life where He is met by faithless disciples, a desperate father, and a demon-possessed boy. Through it all Jesus teaches His disciples the necessity and power of dependent faith.

“We must fight against self-sufficiency, which is a faith-destroyer and the way we can fight self-sufficiency is by developing dependent faith through honest confession and repentance.”
