Mark Lesson 13 (2022)
OVERCOMING THE STORMS OF LIFE
Key Verse: 4:39
When was the last time you felt out of control?
Read verse 35. What had Jesus and his disciples been doing that day? Where were they? (4:1)
Read verse 36. Where did Jesus and his disciples go? How? Why did the disciples take Jesus along “just as he was”?
Read verses 37-38. What emergency arose? Why were the disciples surprised by Jesus? How was Jesus coping with the storm that threatened him and his men? What is significant about the disciples’ questioning Jesus by asking, “Don’t you care if we drown?”
What have been some of the “storms” in your personal life? What “storms” or difficulties are you going through now?
Read verses 39-41. How did Jesus solve the dilemma he and his disciples were facing? Why did Jesus rebuke his disciples? (40) What was the answer to the rhetoric question the disciples asked? (41) What did the disciples learn about Jesus from this event?
How can you trust God with a situation that gets out of control or seems hopeless? What do you want to remember the next time your life seems out of control?
