Where is the Gospel?

How does today's Bible story fit into God's greater plan of redemption?

Jesus was fully man and slept from authentic exhaustion as a man on the boat. It would be this humanity that enabled him to hang as a man in our place and receive from the Father the punishment for our sin. But Jesus was also God. He had authority over the wind and the waves and the demons that possessed the man on the shore. Jesus lived a sinless life and after dying on the cross conquered death by rising again on the third day.

Notice the theme of salvation that follows Jesus everywhere he traveled. Jesus saved the disciples from the storm and Jesus saved the man from the demons that possessed him. Today, if we place our trust in Jesus who died on the cross to take the penalty for our sins, we too can be saved by his power.

Continuing on in the New Testament, we are on week 20 which starts on page 142 in the Old Story New devotional.

Pray about it! Ask God to help you trust him when you are afraid or in danger.


We’re taking a break from Scripture memory for the month of June due to our Crowded House Gatherings July 7th and 14th. We’ll pick back up in July to quote the first Sunday in August. Stay tuned!
