"Uniting Christian & Jewish Clergy from Around the World"
In Matthew 8:23-27 the Bible says "AND WHEN HE GOT INTO THE BOAT,HIS DISCIPLES FOLLOW HIM (V-24) AND BEHOLD,THERE AROSE A GREAT STORM ON THE SEA,SO THAT THE BOAT WAS BEING SWAMPED BY THE WAVES; BUT HE WAS ASLEEP.
Christian friends; there was calm on the sea as long as Jesus was not in the boat.The wind and storm needed not to go violent because it had complete control over the sea.After Jesus and his disciples enter the boat it was when the wind and stom became violent against the boat. When your life is without Jesus the devil will be at peace with you as long as he is in control of your life. But from the day you accept Jesus in your life the storm and wind of the devil starts to beat on your boat (your life).
A Liberia musician Mrs.Kanvee Adems was a Muslim and as a Muslim she was well love by her parents as the queen in the family but from the day she accepted Jesus in her boat ( HER LIFE) she was abused and consider a bog and never to returned to her family. But today Mrs.Kanvee Adems is a star to her generation thru Jesus who is in control of her boat (HER LIFE).She never allowed the enemy to take her eyes off Jesus.
What we need to do as christian with Jesus in our boat is what Jesus asked his disciples in MATTHEW 8:26 "WHY ARE YOU AFRAID?" There is no need to be afraid of the storm and wind that come your way as long your life is in Jesus victory is certain.The devil was given the right to fright us as christians but he was never given the right to win us.Remeber, Jesus said trails and temptations are bound to come,but he did not say trail and temptations will win us.rather,Jesus promised to make a way out of every temtaton for us.Therefore let us have faith and be not afraid because with Jesus in our boat we will surely reach our destination.AMEN
