Why We Are Fearful and Without Faith | Message 12

This message doesn’t focus on the problems as the cause for our fears; it identifies why those in the boat were afraid of the storm and why they became more fearful after Jesus had performed the miracle. The answer applies directly to us as believers.

In Mark chapter five Jesus performed a great miracle when He said unto the sea “Peace, be still” and the wind and sea obeyed Him. Then immediately He turned to those in the ship and asked the question, “Why are you so fearful? how is it that you have no faith?” He didn’t ask them to get an answer, He knew why. Jesus ask the question for them to think about why they had become so afraid and what caused them to completely lose their faith. Their response, in the very next verse, was an increase in their fear instead of calming them down.

The question, why are you so fearful, applies to us today and maybe even more. Stress and worry come at us from every direction leaving us oppressed, frustrated and discouraged. If it becomes overwhelming we experience panic attacks, the fight or flight response kicks in and finally we begin to withdraw into ourselves.

As believers there is a solution, but it isn’t found in relief from the problems it’s in the question that Jesus asked.

Video Slideshow

This video presentation is similar to a screen saver that automatically advances with celestial images of the heavens from the Hubble, NASA, STScI and James Webb sites. They all have an accompanying scripture, or portions which can help illustrate Psalm 19:1 “The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork”.

This series on the Glory of God was originally introduced with only ten Hubble slides shown on a large screen while fifteen verses were being read.  It lasted about ten minutes.  When completed there will be around 400 images in the Video Slideshow with related scriptures.
