A Man Worthy Of Our Praise

Matthew 8


The men traveling with Jesus on a stormy Galilean night said something that ought to make us sit up and take notice. "What kind of a man is this... ?" If we ask ourselves that same question, we will start to see the big picture of who Jesus is instead of concentrating on the "slivers" of personality revealed by individual stories.

When the wind, which has been funneled through a narrow gorge, pushes out over the Sea of Galilee, the water becomes turbulent. Jesus and His disciples were caught in just such a dangerous storm while making their way to Gadara. Waves crashed over the deck of the wooden boat. The experienced seamen onboard were certain that death was imminent.

But Jesus was sleeping. He was resting quietly during a storm so frightening that the Greek word used to describe it is seismos - from the same root that gives us the phrase "seismic activity" for earthquakes. What kind of man is this who can sleep while the boat heaves and pitches? The answer is: the One who createdthe seas and knows how a storm brews and what energy causes a wave to stay in motion. That's the kind of man: a divine Being cloaked in humanity, who rebuked the winds and sea so that they became perfectly calm.

Scripture indicates that both the air and the water were instantly stilled. Such is the power of Jesus, the Creator and Lord over the universe. Taken together, all the Bible stories about Jesus reveal the "big picture" that He is the only man worthy of glory, honor, and praise (Daniel 7:13-14).

Current Sermon Series:

      We live in a world that squabbles over the beginning of the world and mankind. Some say that it was a Big Bang and some say that we were created by some sort of intelligent design. Still, others think that we have come from primoridial ooze and the like. If only there were something that would tell us of our beginnings, something that was recorded for mankind from the maker of the universe. Oh, but there is, it is called the Bible, the Word of God, and it starts with 'In the beginning...'. Over the next five weeks, Lord willing, we will be studying the first few chapters of Genesis. Join us as we look at In The Beginning...


Last Week: In the beginning, God. This is where we began talking about creation. In the beginning of all that we know, there was God. He has always been and will always be. We covered some of His attributes as well as Who God is.
      Sunday's message is available for streaming or for download on our website, just under the calendar, or by visiting us on iTunes.


Next Week: We will continue our series by looking into In The Beginning God Created....
