Having now read Mark 1:1 about this being the gospel of Jesus Christ, the good news about him, let's now turn ahead to Mark 4:35. Read Mark 4:35-38.
What time of day is it?
What are Jesus and his disciples traveling
What starts to happen?
What kind of storm does the Bible say it is?
What do you think it would have been like?
What did the disciples do?
What do you think you would have done?
Have you ever been as scared as they must have been?
Imagine how tired Jesus was... So tired he could sleep in a sinking boat! What about me? I sometimes complain if I get just a little bit tired. Not Jesus!
What did the disciples say to Jesus?
Now read verses 39-41.
What did Jesus say in verse 39?
Who listened? Or more specifically, what listened?
What are the disciples like now? How would you be feeling?
- What could man do about the storm?
- What could Jesus do about it?
- Who then is Jesus? Or, what does this show about who he is?
Is there any "good news" there? If Jesus could calm that kind of storm back then, do you think there are storms in your life that he could calm today?
There are some things like this that no man can help. Meteorologists can't help it, doctors can't help it, I can't help it. But... I know Jesus can! When no one else can - Jesus can help!
