Where Is Your Faith?
Now what many of us have traditionally been taught regarding this story is that the disciples should have trusted Jesus because he had told them, “We’re going to the other side.” That makes sense. But consider this as well:
In all three accounts, the disciples express amazement — and terror — that this man in the boat with them has the ability to command the waves and the water. In other words, He did far more than they thought He could, so when Christ asks them, after He calms the storm, “Where is your faith?” He could have been asking, “Do you not believe that I can do all things?”And this: In Mark 4: 38, the disciples wake Jesus up with the phrase, “Teacher, don’t you care if we drown?”
So, not only do they doubt Christ’s ability to take care of the situation, they also doubt His caring enough about them to do so.
You ever felt that way?
