Stilling Storms

When Christ Jesus stilled a great storm of wind on the Sea of Galilee, he was scientifically proving the power of Christ, Truth, over a destructive force that has plagued humanity throughout its long history. Can the Master's act be marked off as a miracle which only he as the Son of God could bring about, or was it something that all Christians should seek to emulate?

As in all of his so-called miracles, Jesus was subordinating what appeared to be a material condition to a spiritualized state of thought, false law to divine law. He showed that storms are mental states when, according to Mark (4:39), "he arose, and rebuked the wind, and said unto the sea, Peace, be still. And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm."
