Mt 8:26 O ye of little faith. According to Matthew, he characterizes them as of "little faith"; according to Mark he asked, "How is it that ye have no faith"? (Mr 4:40); according to Luke, "Where is your faith"? (Lu 8:25). The spirit of the rebuke is the same in all the accounts. Rebuked the winds and the sea.

    The bible tells us that the world will reject us if we follow Jesus. In this chapter we see the city rejecting him. Stay close to Jesus knowing what you face in this world he has already overcome. If you stay close to Jesus you too will overcome everything you go through.

    Go back to whoever u have wronged and ask forgiveness, so said God that whoever wants to be with him should go back to his wronged and make peace with them be4 coming to the house of prayer. Don't worry is they don't approve of your request for your sins will remain with them.

    If u went to a priest abd confess ur faults. God forgives u. Remember that god loves us so much that he gave his only son fo us to be saved.

    to Tjohn, before the LORD's grace can heal you, you must heal that which you wounded and bind up that which you tore down. In other words grace must first be shown to have a place in your own soul before it may find a place to abide - heal, that you may be healed. any help?
