Daily Word Of God

Mark 4:35-41

With the coming of evening, he said to his disciples, ‘Let us cross over to the other side.’ And leaving the crowd behind they took him, just as he was, in the boat; and there were other boats with him. Then it began to blow a gale and the waves were breaking into the boat so that it was almost swamped. But he was in the stern, his head on the cushion, asleep.

They woke him and said to him, ‘Master, do you not care? We are going down!’ And he woke up and rebuked the wind and said to the sea, ‘Quiet now! Be calm!’ And the wind dropped, and all was calm again. Then he said to them, ‘Why are you so frightened? How is it that you have no faith?’ They were filled with awe and said to one another, ‘Who can this be? Even the wind and the sea obey him.’

Today's Pointers on God's Word

As you read the passage what words, phases or meanings caught your attention?

  • Fear is a very common human experience.  In such times, we feel helpless and threatened by some stronger power that may harm and destroy us.


  • In today’s Gospel, Jesus assures His disciples and us that we have nothing to fear in life because He, who is the Son of God, will protect us from all harm.


  • In trusting Jesus, how should our lifestyle change to show that Jesus is truly our ultimate security and peace in life?
