28 Jun Matthew 8:25-26 (The Marathon of Faith)
“They came and woke him up, saying, ‘Lord, save us! We are perishing!’ He said to them, ‘Why are you terrified, O you of little faith?’ Then he got up, rebuked the winds and sea, and there was great calm.” Matthew 8:25-26 (full readings)
Faith Challenge: In what way are you perishing in the cause for Life? Can you you endure a gentle rebuke and allow God to calm any storms of doubt you might be experiencing? Call on the Lord today to increase your faith and give you the stamina to continue this marathon for Life.
