Jesus Calms the Storm
—Mark 4:35-41 Part 2

Here's some more to think about concerning the storm on the Sea of Galilee (Mark 4:35-41).

In Part 1 we saw the account of the storm on lake Galilee as not only a true real-life story in the life of Jesus, but also an analogy of our lives. Jesus calming the storm on Galilee reminds us of three great truths...We have little security; we have little faith; we have little calm. Now, in Part 2, we see that Jesus Christ has the power change little into much.

1 Christ Has Unlimited Power

2 Christ is a Man to be Feared

There in the boat on lake Galilee, the disciples were twice afraid.

The second fear was the greater. It was also the most productive. As we think about how Jesus made the raging wind and waves obey his voice in Galilee, we are in awe of his unlimited power.

3 Christ is a Man Who Gives Peace

As we have already said, Jesus can offer us peace, Just as he gave his disciples peace on lake Galilee. From him we can receive "the peace of God which passes understanding" (Philippians 4:7).

He can bring peace to our inner person, peace between us and others, and even peace (reconciliation) between us and God (2Corinthians 5:18-21).
