“I believe; help my unbelief!”

Mark, Media, Sermons | by Pastor Adam Sinnett


The first half of the book of Mark (1-8) primarily deals with the person of Jesus, while the back half (8-16) primarily deals with the purpose of Jesus. In chapter eight, Peter rightly identifies Jesus as the Christ, but Jesus turns their understanding of what that means upside-down by explaining that he must be betrayed, suffer, die and rise again. For the rest of Mark’s Gospel we follow Jesus on his way to Jerusalem. On his way, he spends focused time training his disciples – and us – on some crucial topics before he is gone. Today’s lesson from Mark 9:14-32, through a miraculous rescue of a demon possessed boy, is on faith – specifically, we learn about the focus of faith, the measure of faith and the nature of faith.
