Stilling the Storm of Error

In the eighth chapter of Matthew we are told that Jesus and his disciples were once in a small ship at sea when a violent storm arose. The ship was covered with the waves, and the disciples were in great fear. The Master was asleep, and they awoke him with the words, "Lord, save us: we perish." Chiding them for their fear and their lack of faith, Jesus rebuked the storm, "and there was a great calm."

"What manner of man is this," the men asked one another, "that even the winds and the sea obey him!" It might have been answered that Jesus demonstrated the Christ, Truth, which possesses dominion over all the earth. Later, when our Master was crucified—when the carnal mind marshaled its forces in a supreme effort to destroy the truth which was tormenting it—his resurrection and ascension proved that the Christ cannot be touched by any weapon that mortal mind would attempt to bring against it.
