a message from pastor greg

Pastor’s Blog  October 2, 2020

While being down for two weeks with Covid, God has caused me to evaluate many things in both life and in ministry. One of the texts HE used was Matthew chapter 8.

In the first 17 verses of Matthew chapter 8, Jesus is healing and interacting with people until the multitude started growing around Him. At that point He gives a command for the disciples to cross with Him to the other side of the sea of Galilee. While they are crossing, a great storm arises, and the boat starts taking on water. Jesus, meanwhile, is fast asleep in the back of the boat.

They wake Jesus to inform Him that they are going to die. Jesus gets up, stops the storm, and rebukes the disciples for being fearful and faithless.

When He does this, the disciples, who had watched Jesus heal and do miracles, say to each other "Who can this be that even the winds and the sea obey Him?" (Matthew 8:27)

Back in verses 8-10 Jesus admired an officer of the Roman army for his humility and his faith in the authority of Christ. He actually says He had not even seen faith that great in all of Israel. Somehow the centurion understands when those closest to Jesus do not.

It's not about the boat!

It's about knowing Jesus. It took the boat and the storm for the disciples to be confronted with the idea that there is nothing that Jesus isn't capable of. 

It’s not about the boat! The whole foundation of the New Testament Church, the new covenant, even salvation itself was IN that boat. 

But it wasn't the boat's responsibility to save the Kingdom, nor is it ours. 

Not a building. Not a program. Not a conference.

Jesus is bigger than a boat.
