Jesus Calms the Storm: A Sermon on Matthew 8:23-27 | Ep. 66

“What sort of man is this, that even winds and sea obey Him?”

In Matthew 8:23-27 we read the dramatic account of Jesus calming the storm on the Sea of Galilee.

Unfortunately, the primary message of this passage is often minimized or missed altogether.

The ultimate lesson here is not about Jesus calming the storms in your life, nor do we find a promise here that Jesus will get you safely to every destination you set for yourself.

The calming of the storm on the Sea of Galilee is first and foremost about being confronted with the nature of Jesus Christ: truly man yet truly God.

Unless we rightly understand this we cannot rightly apply this passage to our lives.

The following is a sermon I preached on this passage, and I trust that you’ll find even greater encouragement here when rightly seeing the focus on Jesus Christ rather than ourselves.
