12th Sunday in Ordinary Time

Mark 4:35-41

35 On that day, when evening had come, he said to them, "Let us go across to the other side."
36 And leaving the crowd, they took him with them, just as he was, in the boat. And other boats were with him.
37 And a great storm of wind arose, and the waves beat into the boat, so that the boat was already filling.
38 But he was in the stern, asleep on the cushion; and they woke him and said to him, "Teacher, do you not care if we perish?"
39 And he awoke and rebuked the wind, and said to the sea, "Peace! Be still!" And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm.
40 He said to them, "Why are you afraid? Have you no faith?"
41 and they were filled with awe, and said to one another, "Who then is this, that even wind and sea obey him?"

One Main Point

The presence of Jesus brings peace to our hearts. To travel with Jesus is to travel in peace even in the storms of life. Trust him at all times and in all circumstances.

  1. What are the storms in my life right now? (It can be a situation or a struggle from within).
  2. I am with Jesus on a raging sea. Would I stay by his side as water fills the boat? Would I wake him up to ask for a miracle? Would I look to other gods to calm the sea?
