Would You Punk Out?

There’s a story in Mark 4 that perfectly sums up the overwhelmed nature of most of our lives. In the story, Jesus had experienced a full day of teaching the people by the shore of the lake and as the day came to an end he says to his disciples, “Let’s go to the other side.”

Mark 4:36 Leaving the crowd behind, they took him along, just as he was, in the boat. There were also other boats with him. 37 A furious squall came up, and the waves broke over the boat, so that it was nearly swamped. 38Jesus was in the stern, sleeping on a cushion. The disciples woke him and said to him, “Teacher, don’t you care if we drown?”

Now, I have no idea how many times I have read this passage in the last 17 years, though I am sure that it would be dozens and dozens. I have to admit that whenever I would read this passage I would do so with a bit of a smirk towards those disciples. “What is wrong with those guys?!? I mean, JESUS is in the boat!!! 

“Teacher, don’t you care if we drown?”

Let’s talk about you and I for a moment: It would be really easy to think that if God REALLY cared for us we wouldn’t be in the middle of a “storm” in our life. But you know, storms don’t happen because God doesn’t care – storms happen because they are a part of life. Jesus being asleep doesn’t show us a lack of caring – Jesus being asleep shows us that He did not feel threatened by the storm.

Jesus isn’t threatened by the storms in your life either.

Silly, Scared Disciples.

I said it earlier, I have often read verses like this with a smirk – “silly guys!”, as if they punk’d out. But here’s where I have landed on this story: the disciples weren’t punking out when they woke Jesus up – the disciples did what you and I SHOULD do when they got into trouble: they went TO Jesus and said, “HEY JESUS! We need Your help!!”

And help them He did.

39 He got up, rebuked the wind and said to the waves, ”Quiet! Be still!” Then the wind died down and it was completely calm. 40 He said to his disciples, ”Why are you so afraid? Do you still have no faith?”

If I can encourage you to do one thing with your “overwhelmed” life it’s that: Come, Don’t Run. He should be our first reaction, not the One you go to when nothing else works out.

Got something to say? Go for it!
