Why Are You So Afraid? Sunday, June 24 th, 2012 Text: Mark 4:35-41
Karen Fair’s 3-year-old daughter, Abby Trouble sleeping through the night. Have you prayed to Jesus to help you fall asleep? “Yes Mommy, and He told me to come and get you!”
The Words of Our Text from Mark “Why are you so afraid? Do you still have no faith?” Then, says Mark’s Gospel, they were terrified and asked each other, “Who is this? Even the wind and the waves obey him!”
I have been fascinated by this Story! 1.Jesus’ disciples, many of whom were fishermen, were terrified by this storm. 2.Jesus calmed the storm and that really sent shock waves through them.
Why Are You So Afraid? 1.Fear is at the heart of most of the problems we human beings have. A.The opposite of faith is NOT doubt; B.The opposite of faith is _________ 2.At the heart of every negative emotion that afflicts us is FEAR!
I scream the same… Jesus is saying to us, “Why are you so afraid? Do you still have no faith?”
Faith – the Antidote to Fear Grandfather Mountain Boone, North Carolina
Is that what Jesus Meant? “Unless you change and become like a little child you shall never enter the kingdom of God.” Matthew 18:3
Not Just Faith in Anybody or Anything 1.The only kind of faith that really matters is faith in Jesus Christ. A.“Who is this that even the wind and the waves obey Him?” the disciples asked. B.This is Jesus is different alright – He’s God! C.There is no problem, no difficulty, and no issue that He can’t handle!
“Chicken Soup for the Soul” 1.Accept what I cannot change; 2.Courage to change what I can; 3.God grant me the serenity to know the difference;
