And he saith unto them, Why are ye fearful, O ye of little faith? Then he arose, and rebuked the winds and the sea; and there was a great calm. Matthew 8:26
This is one of those scenes that is somewhat amusing to me. I picture Jesus—exhausted and finally getting some rest—and here come the disciples, climbing over each other to get to Him, babbling about the storm and the boat being swamped; like a twelve stooges movie.Jesus probably shook His head sadly, and in today’s vernacular thought to Himself, “Are you kidding me? These guys obviously haven’t noticed all the miracles I’ve been doing.” Then he goes out on the deck and tells the storm to knock it off; and it does!
Can you imagine the looks exchanged by the disciples? Wow! And of course there had to be one or two trying to look cool and saying, “I knew there was nothing to worry about.”
But, seriously, do you believe Jesus is the Son of God? Do you believe He is the way, the truth and the life? Do you have faith that He will see you safely through any and every storm? If these things are true, Why are ye fearful?
