On that day, when evening had come, he said to them,
"Let us go across to the other side."
And leaving the crowd behind, they took him with
them in the boat, just as he was. Other boats were with him. A
great windstorm arose, and the waves beat into the boat, so that
the boat was already being swamped.
But he was in the stern, asleep on the cushion;
and they woke him up and said to him, "Teacher, do you not
care that we are perishing?"
He woke up and rebuked the wind, and said to the
sea, "Peace! Be still!" Then the wind ceased, and there
was a dead calm. He said to them, "Why are you afraid? Have
you still no faith?"
And they were filled with great awe and said to
one another, "Who then is this, that even the wind and the
sea obey him?"

Imagine being in the boat when Jesus calmed the storm.
Kind of eerie and awesome to have that kind of power. May we find
the strong faith Jesus is alluding to in this passage, after we
pick up our jaws from the bottom of the boat!
