“I STILL Got This!”

October 18, 2020

Bible Text: Mark 6:45-56 |


As we continue in the Gospel of Mark, we come to the familiar story of Jesus walking on the surface of the water of the Sea of Galilee. The disciples are in the boat, in the middle of a storm, straining at the oars. When Jesus climbed in the boat, the storm died down, and the disciples are completely amazed. What Mark said next tells us they shouldn’t have been so amazed: “for they had not understood about the loaves, their hearts were hardened.” With the feeding of the 5000 in the previous story, Jesus was letting the disciples know: “I got this!” It was a lesson they forgot so quickly. It’s a lesson we forget just as quickly.
