Why Are You So Afraid? How Jesus Addresses Our Anxiety and Fear. (Mark 4:35-41)

Tim Cain, November 4, 2017
Part of the Mark series, preached at a Saturday Evening service

In Mark 4:35-41 the disciples found themselves on a boat in the middle of a hurricane-like storm. These seasoned fishermen truly believed that they were going to die and all the while Jesus was sleeping in the back of the boat. Deep down inside the disciples began to doubt that he even cared that they were dying. While most of us have never found ourselves trapped at sea in the middle of a storm all of us can relate to how the disciples felt. We have all been scared. We have all felt overwhelmed with life and wondered if Jesus even cared what was happening to us? In this story, we will find that not only does Jesus offer the disciples hope in the midst of their fears but he offers us hope in the midst of ours as well. Let’s look at Mark 4:35-41 and consider whether or not we really need to be as controlled by fear as we are.
