Jesus Is with You
The gospel of Mark shows us Jesus’ method of making disciples who go from being raw material to being able to walk in their calling. How does he do this? He exposes them to trials of increasing intensity that would prepare them for their mission when he was gone. This storm on the lake is one other such occasion, and in it we discover the very truths we need to face the trials of life: that Jesus is praying for us, revealing himself to us, and that he’s right there, with us.
