May 28. Jesus Calms A Storm

Mt. 8:18-27; Mk. 4:35-41; Lk. 8:22-25

When Jesus had finished explaining the miracles to His apostles, He decided to go to the eastern side of the Sea of Galilee. It had been an eventful day and He was tired and went to sleep in the boat as they sailed toward the other side of the sea.

STORM!! Lake storms can come up suddenly and His boat and the other boats with them were taking on water and in danger of sinking. The disciples woke Jesus up saying, “Lord, save us!”

Jesus rebuked the disciples for their lack of faith and rebuked the wind by saying, “Peace be still.” The wind immediately ceased and the lake became greatly calm. Those with Him were amazed that even the winds and the sea obeyed Him.
