2. Jesus Calms the Storm – Mark 4:35-40
Jesus and the disciples were crossing the sea of Galilee in a boat one evening when a violent storm appeared.
The ship was filled with water and the disciples were afraid of sinking.
They found Jesus was sleeping in the back of the boat. They woke Him up. But they thought He was sleeping because He did not care whether they lived or died.
When Jesus woke up He stood and told the sea to be calm. Immediately the wind and waves calmed down. The disciples were now scared for a different reason.
They did not really know who Jesus was at this time. This was shortly after many of them joined Jesus as His followers.
They did not understand that Jesus was God’s Son and could control everything in the world if He choose.
