Luke 8:22-25 NLT
One day Jesus said to his disciples, “Let’s cross to the other side of the lake.” So they got into a boat and started out. As they sailed across, Jesus settled down for a nap. But soon a fierce storm came down on the lake. The boat was filling with water, and they were in real danger. The disciples went and woke him up, shouting, “Master, Master, we’re going to drown!” When Jesus woke up, he rebuked the wind and the raging waves. Suddenly the storm stopped and all was calm. Then he asked them, “Where is your faith?” The disciples were terrified and amazed. “Who is this man?” they asked each other. “When he gives a command, even the wind and waves obey him!”
Reflection . . .
Jesus’ response to his disciples is interesting. After spending time with them and all that he had done in their sight, they are terrified and amazed at this miracle! “Where is you faith?”, he asks. He had power over the nature itself. That’s who Jesus is, the all powerful, almighty God! At times we approach Jesus so casually, and we pray so casually like Jesus is just our buddy or good friend — and that he is! But, he is so much more!
