V. The Disciples are Convinced of Who He is

Three pastors were sitting in a boat, fishing.

“I’m thirsty,” said the first. “I’m gonna go get myself a Coke.” So he got out of the boat, walked across the water, and came back with his Coke.

“Ooh, that looks good,” said the second and got out of the boat. He walked across the water, got his Coke, and came back.

“You’re right,” said the third. “I think I’ll get one too.” He steps out of the boat and sinks like a rock.

“Hey,” said the first pastor to the second, “should we tell him where the rocks are?”

Background:

John 6:14 Then those men, when they had seen the miracle that Jesus did, said, This is of a truth that prophet that should come into the world.

John 6:15 When Jesus therefore perceived that they would come and take him by force, to make him a king, he departed again into a mountain himself alone.

I. Jesus Constrained His disciples

Matthew 14:22 And straightway Jesus constrained his disciples to get into a ship, and to go before him unto the other side, while he sent the multitudes away.

A. Jesus Sent them into a storm

Matthew 14:22 And straightway Jesus constrained his disciples to get into a ship, and to go before him unto the other side, while he sent the multitudes away.

B. Jesus Prays for them in the storm

23 And when he had sent the multitudes away, he went up into a mountain apart to pray: and when the evening was come, he was there alone.

Heb 7:25 Wherefore he is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by him, seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for them.”

C. Jesus Sees them in the storm

Mark 6:47 And when even was come, the ship was in the midst of the sea, and he alone on the land.

Mark 6:48 And he saw them toiling in rowing; for the wind was contrary unto them: and about the fourth watch of the night he cometh unto them, walking upon the sea, and would have passed by them.

In his book The Ragamuffin Gospel, Brennan Manning tells about an incident which took place one day when a two-story house caught on fire. The family was making its way out of the house when the smallest boy became terrified, tore away from his mother, and ran back upstairs. Suddenly, he appeared at a smoke-filled window crying hysterically. Standing outside, his father shouted, Jump, son, jump! I will catch you.”

The boy cried, “But daddy, I can’t see you.”

“I know, his father called. But I can see you.” That’s really all that matters in threatening situations, isn’t it? To know that our heavenly Father can see us.

D. Jesus Went to them in the storm, 24, 25
