Both Sunday Morning Services

River Valley Newsletter February 21st, 2019

Due to technical difficulties, this week's message will not be available online.

In Mark 4:35-41, the disciples realize Jesus’ authority over nature. As a great windstorm begins to overtake them, in faithless fear the disciples rebuke Jesus, questioning His care for them because He was asleep in the boat. Jesus, in turn, rebukes the storm bringing a great calm, proving He is the God of heaven and earth portrayed in Psalm 89 and 107. This gave way to great fear amongst the disciples; a fear full of reverence and awe.

In every circumstance of our lives, we need to seek Jesus instead of trying to find our way out. Jesus was in the boat with His disciples, as He is in every situation we find ourselves in. We need to remember who He is when the wind blows because the Gospel tells us He cares and holds all authority.

We hope to see you this Sunday. Bring your Bible and a friend and we'll see you there!
