Just do it

May 7, 2009

The life of Jesus. Read Today: Orders to cross the Sea of Galilee; Matthew 8:18; Mark 4:35; Luke 8:22

Matthew 8:18 LO
 18 Jesus seeing himself crowded on all sides, gave orders to pass to the opposite shore.

Some key words here considering what is to happen next to them.  As they journey across the lake, a storm arises and the the disciples loose faith. But did Jesus say, 'let's try to go to the other side'?  No, He gave a command.

When God gives a command to you, He gives you the ability to do the job.  You may not feel adequate for the job.  You may feel like you need more money, skill, training, or whatever.  The fact of the matter is that God says do it.

So to quote the Nike ads... 'Just do it'. 

Read for tomorrow: Jesus calms a stormy sea; Matthew 8:23-27; Mark 4:36-41; Luke 8:23-25
