Mark 4:35-41 That day when evening came, he said to his disciples, “Let us go over to the other side.” 36 Leaving the crowd behind, they took him along, just as he was, in the boat. There were also other boats with him. 37 A furious squall came up, and the waves broke over the boat, so that it was nearly swamped. 38 Jesus was in the stern, sleeping on a cushion. The disciples woke him and said to him, “Teacher, don’t you care if we drown?”
39 He got up, rebuked the wind and said to the waves, “Quiet! Be still!” Then the wind died down and it was completely calm.
40 He said to his disciples, “Why are you so afraid? Do you still have no faith?”
41 They were terrified and asked each other, “Who is this? Even the wind and the waves obey him!”
This was my bible reading for today.
I was thinking that If I was hanging around Jesus and saw Him doing all those miracles I would think to myself…duh! This man has supernatural powers…He must be out of this world!!!!
I think I would have said to Jesus:
Jesus can you get us a bigger boat so we don’t have to worry about the weather?
Jesus can you get us a fleet of camels so we don’t have to walk everywhere? What about some donkeys then?
Oh Jesus…can we get a food buffet going…I’m really hungry? We can eat pork now… right? So I’d like some bacon , ribs, mac and cheese and apple pie.
Master….I’m out of cash….can I get a few bucks…like about $5,000? Too much? What about $1,000? OK 10 bucks?
Jesus my knees are hurting from this arthritis… can I get a healing? Did you say speak to the hand? Oh You said the power is in your hands! Sorry bout that. My bad! I’m so glad you love me Jesus!
Messiah… you think we can get that mansion now? Oh…then what about a house with a nice kitchen and indoor bathroom? You say we won’t need one because we’ll be on the road….I see.
Rabbi…can I use some that supernatural power for my friends… they’ve been asking for a hookup? Jesus …that slap on the back of my head hurts.
Jesus you say you’re gonna come back alive? OK we’ll be waiting at the tomb for you. Are you sure you’re gonna be there tomorrow morning?
Master your going away for a while…take me with you!
Oh you’re coming back again? Soon? OK I’ll be ready!
Now I’m serious……Are….”you” ready for His return?
He is coming back….VERY SOON!!!!!!!!!
John 14:3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am.
1 Thessalonians 4:16-17 For the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. 17 After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever.
