[The Glory Unveiled]
Jesus was in the stern [of the boat], sleeping on a cushion. The disciples woke him and said to him, “Teacher, don’t you care if we drown?” ( Mark 4:38 )
Is the Jesus in your boat asleep? There is no question of the presence or location of Jesus; He was in the boat. Suggestive of the fact that, Jesus can be in one’s life (boat) and yet the effect of his presence will not be felt if we don’t give Him room to act as the captain of our [ship] life. He was with the disciples, but that was not enough to activate His presence. Jesus only became real in the boat when He was engaged by the disciples. The woman with the issue of blood was not the only one in the vicinity where she touched the hem of Jesus and drew virtue from Him. But among those throbbing crowd, she was the only one who reached the power source–the virtue–within him. So that even though many people throbbed Christ, non actually truly touched Him beyond the physical touch. There is the need to consciously awaken, the knowledge of Christ in us through the study of God’s word. Awaken the Spirit of Christ; engage Him in a constant communion.
Prayer_Bead: Lord Jesus, my Love and Lord, teach me to constantly engage you in fellowship with me. Help me through your word to keep our communion alive through discipline and perseverance.
