Sermons about Storm
One of the most overlooked aspects of the story of Jonah is the salvation of the sailors. Join us as we examine their journey to faith. For in the sailors, we see a picture of ourselves.
Matthew 8:23-29 New International Version (NIV) Jesus Calms the Storm 23 Then he got into the boat and his disciples followed him. 24 Suddenly a furious storm came up on the lake, so that the waves swept over the boat. But Jesus was sleeping. 25 The disciples went and woke him, saying, “Lord, save us! We’re going to drown!” 26 He replied, “You of little faith, why are you so afraid?” Then he got up and rebuked the winds and the waves, and it was completely calm. 27 The men were amazed and asked, “What kind of man is this? Even the winds and the waves obey him!”
Today, Pastor Michael teaches about how peace is not just the absence of trouble and turmoil from our lives; it is the calm assurance in the midst of the trouble and turmoil in our lives. Peace is a state of being where we are calm in the heart and mind despite the fact that storms rage around and against us. Peace truly does transcends all understanding.
When caught in the mother of all storms the disciples declare, "don't you care that we are perishing?" Jesus responds by calming the sea and demonstrating his great concern not just for this storm, but also an even greater storm.
Heading for a perfect harbor with a perfect wind at their backs . . . God sent them reeling with a violent wind. Two weeks later, everyone reached shore safely.
When facing the storm we need God's presence. We need to understand who we are in Christ, His call on our lives and the belief we can trust God even as the ship sinks.
