Even the Wind and the Sea Obey Him

"But He said to them, “Why are you so fearful? How is it that you have no faith?" (Mark 4:40)

The incident painted a picture of a small boat threatened with destruction in a furious storm.

As the disciples were struggling against the wind and waves, the Lord Jesus Christ was undisturbed. While the disciples were frantically trying to save a sinking boat, the Lord Jesus Christ was asleep.

The Lord Jesus Christ was so tired that even the violent tossing of the waves did not wake Him.

Didn't the Lord Jesus Christ care that they were all about to die?

After the Lord Jesus Christ calmed the storm, He asked them the penetrating question, "Why are you so fearful? How is it that you have no faith?"

Then the disciples became even more afraid, exclaiming to each other, "Who can this be, that even the wind and the sea obey Him!"

It was a vivid lesson to the disciples about who Jesus is and what He can do.

The Lord Jesus Christ is the omnipotent sovereign God.

Just as Jesus' disciples, to each person who trusts in the Lord Jesus Christ, He reveals His presence, compassion, and control in every storm of life.
