“And he awoke and rebuked the wind and said to the sea, Peace! Be still! And the wind ceased and there was a great calm. He said to them, Why are you so afraid? Have you still no faith?” (Mark 4:39-40)
“But overhearing what they said, Jesus said to the ruler of the synagogue, Do not fear, only believe.” (Mark 5:36)
Simple message. As faith increases, fear decreases.
Are our fears decreasing? Do we have the peace Jesus clearly wants for us?
