Calms the Storm
22 One day Jesus said to his disciples, “Let us go over to the
other side of the lake.” So they got into a boat and set out. 23 As
they sailed, he fell asleep. A squall came down on the lake, so that the boat
was being swamped, and they were in great danger. 24 The
disciples went and woke him, saying, “Master, Master, we’re going to drown!” He
got up and rebuked the wind and the raging waters; the storm subsided, and all
was calm. 25 “Where is your faith?” he asked his disciples. In
fear and amazement they asked one another, “Who is this? He commands even the
winds and the water, and they obey him.”
