Come, Follow Me


Peace, Be Still

Reinforces this week’s “Come Follow Me” study: Matthew 8; Mark 2-4; Luke 7
“Thy Faith Hath Saved Thee”


Matthew 8:24-27

“And, behold, there arose a great tempest in the sea, insomuch that the ship was covered with the waves: but he was asleep. And his disciples came to him, and awoke him, saying, Lord, save us: we perish. And he saith unto them, Why are ye fearful, O ye of little faith? Then he arose, and rebuked the winds and the sea; and there was a great calm. But the men marveled, saying, What manner of man is this, that even the winds and the sea obey him!”


Master, the Tempest is Raging Hymn #105


During his life on earth, Jesus performed many miraculous healings. He healed lepers, He restored sight to the blind, He cast out evil spirits, and He even raised the dead.

Jesus showed us through these miracles that He is the Son of God, and He has power over all things.

Though Jesus may not always heal the sickness and sufferings we face in life, He has power to bring us peace. When we face our challenges with faith in Jesus Christ, He gives us strength and a special kind of peace that replaces our fear with calm.


“‘Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.’ (John 14:27.) … This peace is of a special kind. With Christ’s peace comes the deep, inner assurance that all things, even our greatest sufferings, will be for our good. … Such peace does not depend on external circumstance but grows as we become one with Christ.” George S. Tate
