Sharing the Lord’s Rest by Faith

Mark 4:36-38—“And leaving the crowd, they took Him along, just as He was, in the boat; and other boats were with Him. And there arose a great windstorm, and the waves beat into the boat, so that the boat was already beginning to fill up. And He was in the stern, sleeping on the cushion. And they woke Him and said to Him, Teacher, does it not matter to You that we are perishing?”

Note 1 on sleeping says: “The Slave-Savior was sleeping and resting in the boat, which was being beaten by the windstorm, while the disciples were threatened by the storm. This indicates that He was above the threatening windstorm and was not bothered by it. As long as the disciples had Him with them in their boat, they should, by faith in Him (v. 40), have shared His rest and enjoyed His peace.”
