“He said to them, Let’s go over to the other side.” Mark 4:35
This short passage tells the story of Jesus going with His disciples in a boat across a lake. He tells them that they are going to the other side, then He goes to sleep in the back of the boat. In the middle of the lake a storm comes up, a furious storm, and the boat was filling with water. They wake Him up and He calms the sea, then He tells them “why are you so timid and fearful?”
What a message for us as believers. We have Jesus with us in our boat and when the storms of this life come, He will take care of them. There is no need to be timid and fearful.
The end of the story is…..they came to the other side. It’s time for us to have faith, trust in Jesus, and go to the other side.
