Where is Your Faith?
A Sermon on Luke 8:22-25
Jesus Calms a Storm
One day he got into a boat with his disciples, and he said to them, “Let us go across to the other side of the lake.” So they set out, and as they sailed he fell asleep. And a windstorm came down on the lake, and they were filling with water and were in danger. And they went and woke him, saying, “Master, Master, we are perishing!” And he awoke and rebuked the wind and the raging waves, and they ceased, and there was a calm. He said to them, “Where is your faith?” And they were afraid, and they marveled, saying to one another, “Who then is this, that he commands even winds and water, and they obey him?” (ESV)
The nature of faith; Jesus; God and man; self-control the mark of the Christian; the trial of faith; faith is an activity; the value of the smallest and weakest faith.
