Reading the Text

Luke 8:22One day Jesus said to his disciples, “Let’s go over to the other side of the lake.” So they got into a boat and left.

Luke 8:23As they sailed, Jesus fell asleep. A storm came down on the lake. It was so bad that the boat was about to sink. They were in great danger.

Luke 8:24The disciples went and woke Jesus up. They said, “Master! Master! We’re going to drown!” He got up and ordered the wind and the huge waves to stop. The storm quieted down. It was completely calm.

Luke 8:25“Where is your faith?” he asked his disciples. They were amazed and full of fear. They asked one another, “Who is this? He commands even the winds and the waves, and they obey him.”
