Our own Vicki Bohannon was our guest preacher this week, preaching from Mark 6:45-52, with a message called, “Seeking God in the Process of Obedience.”
We often look at tough times as something to endure while on our way toward a goal, but Vicki challenged us to see the process as the goal God has for us. Our goal is God himself, not that which he provides for us. Our purpose is for this moment, and we will never know what our obedience will bring.
Two thoughts regarding this passage on which to focus:
- Jesus MADE them get into the boat and go to the other side: hard times should be expected.
- Jesus intended to WALK PAST THEM on the water: will we seek Jesus in the midst of our storms?
