Read Mark 4:35-41
35 On the evening of that same day Jesus said to his disciples, “Let us go across to the other side of the lake.” 36So they left the crowd; the disciples got into the boat in which Jesus was already sitting, and they took him with them. Other boats were there too. 37Suddenly a strong wind blew up, and the waves began to spill over into the boat, so that it was about to fill with water. 38Jesus was in the back of the boat, sleeping with his head on a pillow. The disciples woke him up and said, “Teacher, don’t you care that we are about to die?”
39 Jesus stood up and commanded the wind, “Be quiet!” and he said to the waves, “Be still!” The wind died down, and there was a great calm. 40Then Jesus said to his disciples, “Why are you frightened? Have you still no faith?”
41 But they were terribly afraid and said to one another, “Who is this man? Even the wind and the waves obey him!”
"Who is this that even the winds and the sea obey him?"
Jesus teaching to us is sometimes quite difficult to follow. Jesus calls us to joyful obedience. And even the winds and the seas obey him.
I wonder why it is always so difficult for us to be obedient?
I need to hear you say to my soul: "Be quiet! Be still!" I need you to help me surrender to you. I need friends to surround me to help me as I follow. Give me your grace Lord Jesus.
