Mark 4 ESV 

35 On that day, when evening had come, he said to them, “Let us go across to the other side.” 36 And leaving the crowd, they took him with them in the boat, just as he was. And other boats were with him. 37 And a great windstorm arose, and the waves were breaking into the boat, so that the boat was already filling. 38 But he was in the stern, asleep on the cushion. And they woke him and said to him, “Teacher, do you not care that we are perishing?” 39 And he awoke and rebuked the wind and said to the sea, “Peace! Be still!” And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm. 40 He said to them, “Why are you so afraid? Have you still no faith?” 41 And they were filled with great fear and said to one another, “Who then is this, that even the wind and the sea obey him?”


Rebuked the wind/ storm.  

Peace to the sea/ waves / circumstance. 


1 Why are you so afraid

The problem is not that we are in a storm. 

The problem is that we allow the storm to get in us.  

You have so little faith

“We are in Jesus’ boat.”


Mark 4 ESV

41 And they were filled with great fear and said to one another, “Who is this, that even the wind and the sea obey him?”


2 Who is this?


John 1 ESV

1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was in the beginning with God. 3 All things were made through him, and without him was not any thing made that was made. 4 In him was life,and the life was the light of men. 5 The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.


Jesus was, Always. 

All things were created through Him

He is the Son of God. 

Incarnation - God in the flesh

Alpha and the Omega 

The beginning and the end. 


3 It’s time for us to confront our storm


Mark 4 ESV

39 And he awoke and rebuked the wind and said to the sea, “Peace! Be still!” and the wind ceased, and there was a great calm


Mark 11 ESV

20 As they passed by in the morning, they saw the fig tree withered away to its roots. 21 And Peter remembered and said to him, “Rabbi, look! The fig tree that you cursed has withered.” 22 And Jesus answered them, “Have faith in God. 23 Truly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be taken up and thrown into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that what he says will come to pass, it will be done for him.
