“The Approaching Storm”
The Approaching Storm
At the end of another arduous day of preaching the gospel, the Savior and his disciples boarded a ship to travel “to the other side” of the Sea of Galilee. As the cool evening air moves over the water, the wind begins to swirl the subtle whispering of a possible end to their calm journey.
With experience on or around the sea, the disciples know the potential danger of their situation and show their concern with mixed emotions. Yet, as long as Jesus is with them, they know that somehow all will be well.
As one having power over life and death, as well as the power to control nature, Jesus knows the situation is well in hand and will soon retire for needed sleep, and leave his disciples on their own to test their faith in a possibly desperate situation.And so it is with us, as we live by faith and are tested in this mortal life. We too can have “the Captain of our salvation” guide us through the storms of life and bring us safely to the other side.
