Mark 4:35-41 NASB
35 On that day, when evening came, He *said to them, “Let us go over to the other side.” 36 Leaving the crowd, they *took Him along with them in the boat, just as He was; and other boats were with Him. 37 And there *arose a fierce gale of wind, and the waves were breaking over the boat so much that the boat was already filling up. 38 Jesus Himself 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 got up and rebuked the wind and said to the sea, “Hush, be still.” And the wind died down and it became perfectly calm. 40 And He said to them, “Why are you afraid? Do you still have no faith?” 41 They became very much afraid and said to one another, “Who then is this, that even the wind and the sea obey Him?”
- Storms Will Come 4:35-37
- Storms Are a Gift 4:38
- Jesus Is Greater Than Any Storm 4:39-41
- How are you tempted to live your life trying to avoid storms? Where does that motive come from? How do you engage with others when they are in the midst of a storm?
- What are the ways you have seen storms as a blessing? How have storms in your life shaped you and your faith to know and love Jesus more deeply? How have you witnessed other’s storms shape them to be more Christ-like?
- How has (or is) Jesus revealed Himself to you in a storm? What have you learned about Him in the midst and the aftermath of a storm? How has that changed you and how you relate to Him? Who do you claim Jesus to be?
