Matthew 8:14-22 Read the New Testament in a Year:Acts 11:19-30 On 31 July 2003, the adventurer Bear Grylls led a team of five across the North Atlantic Ocean in an inflatable rigid dinghy. They set out from Halifax, Nova Scotia, heading for John o’ Groats, Scotland. On 5 August, a great storm arose. There were 100-foot waves. They lost satellite contact. They feared for their lives. Thankfully they survived to tell the tale (see Facing the Frozen Ocean by Bear Grylls). Not all of us will have to face physical storms of this kind. But Jesus said that we would all face the storms of life (Matthew 7:25–27). Life is not easy. These storms are many and varied. Almost every character in the Bible faced some type of storm in their lives. Let’s see what we can learn from Jesus’ example that starts with crossing over to the other side of the lake.]]>
