2012-04-22 - Where Is Your Faith?
In Luke 8:22-25, we find the story of Jesus calming a storm. Jesus had instructed His disciples to get into a boat and take it over to the other side of a lake. Jesus soon fell asleep, and a violent storm threatened to swamp the boat. The disciples were afraid the boat would sink. In a panic, the disciples awakened Jesus. Jesus got up, rebuked the wind and water, and asked His disciples ,"Where is your faith?"
Jesus' question, to His disciples two thousand years ago, is just as relevant to us today - "Where is your faith?" Do we put our faith in technology? Do we put our faith in our knowledge and intellect? Do we put our faith in our physical strength? Do we put our faith in others?
Jesus wanted His disciples to put their faith in Him. It is the same for us today. Jesus wants us to put our faith in Him. He wants us to trust and follow Him. Where is your faith?
