Jesus at the Lake
Pastor Peter Young

Mark 4:36 - Now when they had left the multitude, they took Him along in the boat as He was. And other little boats were also with Him.

1. Jesus is the model – Work Hard Rest Hard

Mark 4:35 - On the same day, when evening had come, He said to them, “Let us cross over to the other side.”

2. Sometimes the turmoil – is not your fault

Mark 4:37 - And a great windstorm arose, and the waves beat into the boat, so that it was already filling.

3. When the storm gets too strong – sometimes we panic

Mark 4:38 - But He was in the stern, asleep on a pillow. And they awoke Him and said to Him, “Teacher, do You not care that we are perishing?”.

Matthew 8:25 - Then His disciples came to Him and awoke Him, saying, “Lord, save us! We are perishing!”

4. Regardless of the circumstances – Jesus is in control

Mark 4:39 - Then He arose and rebuked the wind, and said to the sea, “Peace, be still!” And the wind ceased and there was a great calm.

5. Jesus being Jesus – Why do we marvel?

Luke 8:25 - But He said to them, “Where is your faith?” And they were afraid, and marveled, saying to one another, “Who can this be? For He commands even the winds and water, and they obey Him!”
