Who Then is This?


Luke 8:22-25

22Now on one of those days Jesus and His disciples got into a boat, and He said to them, “Let us go over to the other side of the lake.” So they launched out. 23But as they were sailing along He fell asleep; and a fierce gale of wind descended on the lake, and they began to be swamped and to be in danger. 24They came to Jesus and woke Him up, saying, “Master, Master, we are perishing!” And He got up and rebuked the wind and the surging waves, and they stopped, and it became calm. 25And He said to them, “Where is your faith?” They were fearful and amazed, saying to one another, “Who then is this, that He commands even the winds and the water, and they obey Him?”

(From sermon notes 2009)

As a man, he slept…but as God, he spoke to the wind and waves and they stopped.  Can we say that as men and women we are limited by time and space, but through God we are unlimited from everlasting to everlasting? Jesus asked the disciples, “Where is your faith?” Indeed, where is our faith? Is it in only what we see, what we hear, what we feel?

You don’t have to doubt or wonder if God will keep His word. He will keep His word.  God can do a better job when He’s sleeping than we do when we are awake.

God has already conquered the storm.

He has already conquered the wind and waves.
