Jesus Calms the Storm

Matthew 8:23-27, (Mark 4:35-41, Luke 8:22-25), "Then He (Jesus) got into the boat and His disciples followed Him. Without warning a furious storm came upon the lake, so that the waves swept over the boat!

"But Jesus was sleeping. The disciples went and woke Him saying, 'LORD, save us! We're going to drown!' He replied, 'You of little faith, why are you so afraid?' Then He got up and rebuked the wind and waves and it was completely calm.

"The men were amazed and asked, 'What kind of Man is this that even the wind and waves obey Him!"

TRUST: do you trust Jesus for Who He is? This event in the lives of His disciples who were WITH Him, they saw and believed. GOD's Word tells us: John 20:29, "Jesus said unto them, 'Because you have seen Me you believe, blessed are they who have not seen Me yet believe!' " By believing in our Savior, we have eternal life in Him!  John 17:3, "This is eternal life that they should know the only true GOD and He that sent Him, even Jesus Christ." BELIEVE and RECEIVE ETERNAL LIFE!

He Has Risen Indeed!

We too shall know this resurrection for in II Corinthians 5:8 His Word tells us, "We are of good courage and are willing rather to be absent from the body and be at home with the LORD." Whether at death or in the Rapture, we shall forever be with our Awesome, Almighty, Creator, Savior, Holy Father GOD! Christ Jesus made this possible because of taking our sins upon Him on the Cross! Accept His forgiveness of your sins and enjoy the season of celebrating His Resurrection! Happy Easter to you!

The Cost of Following Jesus

Matthew 8:18-22, "When Jesus saw the crowd around Him, He gave orders to cross to the other side of the lake. Then a teacher of the law came to Him and said, 'Teacher, I will follow You wherever You go.' Jesus replied,

"Foxes have holes and...

"...birds of the air have nests, but the Son of Man has no place to lay His head.'

"Another disciple said to Him, 'LORD, first let me go and bury my father.' But Jesus told him, 'Follow me and let the dead bury their own dead.' "

Commentary: "Following Jesus is not always easy or comfortable. It often means cost and sacrifice, with no earthly rewards or security. You may find that following Christ costs you popularity, friendships, leisure time, or treasured habits. But while the cost of following Christ  is high, the value of being Christ's  follower is even higher! Discipleship is an investment that lasts for ETERNITY and yields incredible rewards!" As is said, "This life is but the blink of an eye" compared to eternity with our Awesome, Almighty, Creator, Savior, Holy Father GOD! Will you spend it with Him forever or will you be separated forever paying for your sin in the darkness of an eternal Lake of Fire and Brimstone? GOD gives you the choice to choose Christ Jesus' sacrifice for your sin on the Cross spending eternity with Him or you can deny it and spend eternity in agony paying the price for your own sin forevermore! 
For His Word tells us, "All have sinned and fallen short of the Glory of GOD. (Romans 3:23)" This gift of eternal salvation is from Almighty GOD. "You may know you have eternal life, even to you who believe on the Name of the Son of GOD (Jesus Christ). (1 John 5:13)." The choice is yours.

Jesus' Power Over All

Matthew 8:14-17, "When Jesus came into Peter's house, He saw Peter's mother-in-law lying in bed with a fever. He touched her and the fever left her, and she got up and began to wait on Him.

"When evening came, many who were demon-possessed were brought to Him and He drove out the spirits with a Word and healed all the sick. This was to fulfill what was spoken through the prophet Isaiah 53:4; 'He took up our infirmities and carried our diseases.' "

Jesus is still healing today! Those who are His born again servants are promised in His Word;

John 14:13, "Whatsoever you shall ask in My Name, that will I do that the Father may be glorified in the Son (Jesus)."

Jesus repeats it again in John 14:14, "If you shall ask anything in My Name, that will I do."

John 15:16, "Whatsoever you shall ask of the Father in My Name, He may give it to you."

John 16:23, "If you shall ask anything of the Father He will give it to you in My Name."

John 16:24, "ASK (in My Name), you shall receive that your joy may be made full."

You are GOD's creation and He Loves you! Come to His salvation in Jesus Christ Who paid you sin debt in full and begin realizing His miracles He has for you!
