June 30, 2013 “A Strong Savior for Life’s Storm”


Let’s open our Bibles to Luke 8:22. I’m taking a break from the series on the Beatitudes this morning. It’s been a fantastic week of ministry in our VBS and we’re so happy to have many guests with us today. Read text.

ILLUSTRATION – Jesus and His disciples are suddenly caught in a storm. When you travel to the Holy Lands you likely will take a boat ride on the Sea of Galilee (more like a big lake). The guides will always say that there’s something about the region that creates a certain meteorological condition where fierce storms can blow up on the lake with very little warning. Of course, in that day they didn’t have Doppler weather radar to warn them when storms were coming.

Luke 8:23b – A squall came down on the lake, so that the boat was being swamped, and they were in great danger.
