Fearful and Faithless

“Dear Pastor, Perhaps You Should Consider Resigning and Moving. Part 1”

Mark 4:37-41 These were the words that Jesus used to describe the disciples in the text.
Jesus goes on several times to rebuke their lack of faith. It is easy for us to be critical. I mean,  don’t they know who they are with? Yet, many times I hear his rebuke in my heart as well. I  look at the storm that is blowing my boat around, and fear grips me. Notice that these words  are really describing their focus. Their lack of faith shows they are not focused on God, not  confidently trusting in Him. Their fear shows exactly what they were focused on, which was, in this case, a storm. Where is your focus?

Last Thursday the Lord opened up an opportunity for me to witness to three different men. Carlos #1: Carlos is a plumber who came by the house to modify some of the pipes so we could install a dishwasher. When he had finished his work, he and I talked for close to an hour. I gave him a tract and explained the purpose of our move to Argentina.
