I like the account of the disciples who were caught in the storm-tossed sea! For it paints a wonderful picture of our Lord. We read, “One day he got into a boat with his disciples, and he said to them, Let us go to the other side of the lake. So they set out, and as they sailed he fell asleep. And a windstorm came down on the lake, and they were filling with water and were in danger. And they went and woke him, saying, Master, Master, we are perishing! And he awoke and rebuked the wind and the raging waves, and they ceased, and there was a calm. He said to them, Where is your faith? And they were afraid, and they marveled, saying to one another, Who then is this, that he commands even the winds and the water, and they obey him?” (Luke 8:22-25)
Let us then examine what message it has for you and I!
