The water is making its way into the boat, the wind is howling, the waves are overwhelming, and Jesus is zzzzzzzzz. Notice that He didn’t stop the storm, He only gets involved when invited, and He’s amazed that we get so worked up. Jesus shows us how to be at total peace when — not if — the storm rises up.
Remember Pogs? Beanie Babies? It’s a movement, a craze, a fad that people hear about, get into, and usually cast aside. The Kingdom of God is similar… sorta. The best part? We’re all a work in progress, a renovation in the works.
Of COURSE we feel out of place as followers of Jesus. Until we are home with the Lord, we make it our aim to please Him. Every moment, every decision, every action counts. What can we do that most brings glory to the grace, truth, and hope of Jesus? That’s how we’re supposed to be.
God has given a share of responsibility to each of us. Today, God gives victory to those who know Him, seek Him, trust Him. Live today like that. Includes that fantastic youth group song that you might have heard in a big tent, perhaps played by your youth pastor.
