Discussion for Mark 4

  • Servant of God
    The storm at sea doesn't let up as Jesus resides in heaven and we on earth have "little faith". We must fend for ourselves, the blind leading the blind. The word has been sown. The sun came up and the earth germinated not the seed for the ground was hard. Thorns and thisles choked the Word for there was lies and corruption. But some shall hear and faint not in their pursuit of the truth, few.

    We should not let the cares of this world affect us

    We need grow in our faith in the Lord Jesus Christ

  • Cody
    There is not a storm big enough god can not handle in a blink of an eye

    Verse 24 reminds me of the principle that you get out of something how much you put into something.
