Dr. Paul Tripp preaches from Mark 6 to explain the difference between amazement and faith in this message recorded live at Mars Hill Church in August 2013.

Doubt, worry, fear, and discouragement are natural. Faith is not. But God’s people are called to live by faith. Dr. Paul Tripp describes this radical, supernatural process on today’s episode of Resurgence Leadership.



Here are some highlights from this week’s program:

God works to craft in us faith, to transform us into people who really do live by faith.

There is a huge difference between amazement and faith. You can be amazed by things that you don’t put your faith in.

God will take you where you haven’t chosen to go in order to produce in you what you could not achieve on your own.

For many of us, we esteem a predictable, easy life more than the awesome, transforming work of the Redeemer.

Faith is when you accept God’s declaration of himself and his plan, and then you turn and live on that basis.

Faith is not just something you do with your brain; faith is the way that you live your life.

We’re all too quickly satisfied. We’re satisfied long before God’s work of grace is completed in us.

We serve a dissatisfied Redeemer. He will not abandon his work. He will not stop what he has begun.
