Our Threatened Ego System
[No Sermon Audio]
The disciples learned that journeying with Jesus did not insulate them from difficulties and storms in life—Paul found that to be true as well. Jesus never promises us smooth sailing! Yet, in His profound mercy, He cares for us. He is not only merciful, but powerful as well, evidenced by His rebuke of the wind and the waves (and whatever else may frighten us). Those moments, however, force us to put our faith in Him rather than ourselves. He does care that we perish! In His active compassion, He is with us in the midst of our troubles…giving us peace in every storm.
