Day 275, October 2 - Mark 4

Click here for today's reading

35 The same evening, Jesus suggested they cross over to the other side of the lake.

36 With Jesus already in the boat, they left the crowd behind and set sail along with a few other boats that followed.

37 As they sailed, a storm formed. The winds whipped up huge waves that broke over the bow, filling the boat with so much water that even the experienced sailors among them were sure they were going to sink.

38 Jesus was back in the stern of the boat, sound asleep on a cushion, when the disciples shook Him awake. Disciples (shouting over the storm): Jesus, Master, don’t You care that we’re going to die?

39 He got up, shouted words into the wind, and commanded the waves. Jesus: That’s enough! Be still! And immediately the wind died down to nothing, the waves stopped. Jesus:

40 How can you be so afraid? After all you’ve seen, where is your faith?

41 The disciples were still afraid, slowly coming to grips with what they had seen. Disciples (to one another): Who is this Jesus? How can it be that He has power over even the wind and the waves?
