In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. In him was life; and the life was the light of men. John 1:1-4

What to take away: Jesus said "Let us pass over to the other side" so not even a storm could stop his word, Gods word is final authority, even during a great storm, Jesus was so at peace the storm didn't wake him. Jesus gave example of speaking to, and rebuking the problem, not being in fear, as the disciples were.


Now when Jesus had been teaching by the sea side, there gathered a great multitude, so that he entered into a ship, and sat in the sea to teach.

When evening was come he saith unto the disciples, and gave commandment, "Let us pass over to the other side of the lake." And when they had sent away the multitude, they took him even as he was in the ship and launched forth, his disciples followed him. And there were also other little ships.

But as they sailed he fell asleep; and there came down, arose a storm of wind on the lake, a great tempest in the sea, insomuch that the ship was covered with the waves, and the waves beat into the ship, so that it was now full, in jeopardy. But he was in the hinder part of the ship, asleep on a pillow.

And his disciples came to him, and awoke him, and said unto him, "Master, Master, save us, carest thou not that we perish?"

Then he arose, and rebuked the wind and raging of the water, and said unto the sea, "Peace, be still", and the wind ceased, and there was great calm.

And he said, "Why are ye so fearful, where is your faith, o ye of little faith, how is it that he have no faith?".

And they being afraid, feared exceedingly, marveled and wondered, saying one to another, "What manner of man is this, that even the winds and sea obey him?".
