More Moments About Mark 4

Wendy Pope

We never know when a storm will suddenly surround us. Financial situations. A runaway child. A terminal illness. It's so important that we never doubt the assurances of God. In Mark 4:35, Jesus said to His disciples, "Let us go over to the other side." In this simple statement, Jesus was assuring them a successful voyage across the lake. He didn't promise the disciple there wouldn't be a storm; He just said we would make it.

Jesus made a similar commitment to us, "In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world" (John 16:33). No matter what trouble rises up around us, God promises that He will never leave us or forsake us. (Hebrews 13:5) He might choose to say "Quiet! Be still" to the storm or "Quiet! Be still" to our souls. Whether He calms the storm or our souls, He's with us.

Major Moment: Jesus teaches about the kingdom and faith using parables.
