The Winds and the Sea Obey Him
In Matthew 8:23-27 Jesus taught the disciples a lesson of faith they could never forget. They had seen many miracles already, and they had seen Him teach with great authority, but the storm on the Sea of Galilee would leave an indelible mark on their lives.
The storm revealed their weakness of faith but the Savior revealed mercy and grace in the way He answered their plea for help. This passage is an important section of Scripture for those enduring the storms of life. Oftentimes in Scripture literal events are used by God to teach us spiritual truths, and that is certainly the case here.
