Why Are You So Afraid?

It’s BIG QUESTIONS WEEK here on GUWG, where all week long we’re looking at deep, thought-provoking ?s from the Bible.

Jesus and the disciples were hanging out in a boat one night. A violent storm suddenly broke out. Waves started pounding the boat and it was nearly swamped.

The disciples were freaking. Jesus was sleeping.

So they woke him up. “Don’t you care if we drown?” they asked him.

Jesus got up and immediately calmed the storm. Then he asked two rather pointed questions that hit the disciples right in the heart:

Why are you so afraid? Do you still have no faith?

Those are great questions to ask ourselves whenever we get tossed around by the storminess of life.

So … what’s YOUR answer?

Never never never fear. Always always always have faith.

You’re forever safe in Jesus’ boat. Get in and stay in.
