Mark 4:37-41 – “How is it that ye have no faith?”

Mark 4:37-41
37
And there arose a great storm of wind, and the waves beat into the ship, so that it was now full.
38 And he was in the hinder part of the ship, asleep on a pillow: and they awake him, and say unto him, Master, carest thou not that we perish?
39 And he arose, and rebuked the wind, and said unto the sea, Peace, be still. And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm.
40 And he said unto them, Why are ye so fearful? how is it that ye have no faith?
41 And they feared exceedingly, and said one to another, What manner of man is this, that even the wind and the sea obey him?

-After Jesus handles the storm, He asks a question that defines a multitude of souls across the world; “how is it that ye have no faith?”  For the disciples, Jesus had performed many mighty works right before their eyes; how could their faith still be so weak?  For us, the Lord has created a sense of order and design in the universe that impresses even the best scientists and mathematicians; He has brought forth wonders in nature that leave our most artistic minds in awe; He has performed miracles that give the most ardent skeptics pause; and most importantly, He has left us with his precious Word that can stir even the hardest of hearts.  After all of this, “how is it that ye have no faith?”
