Jesus, If You Love Me, Why Do I Hurt? (Mark 4:35-41)Pastor Justin Pratt, November 12, 2017
Part of the Miscellaneous series, preached at a Sunday Evening service
Sometimes we all face times in life when we really begin to question whether God truly loves us. We face difficult situations and difficult decisions. We face unknown storms and we are at a total and complete loss as to what to do.
The Disciples faced a literal storm like this. They were experienced fishermen, and yet they feared for their very lives. But in this storm, the Lord taught them a lesson.
Maybe you're asking yourself tonight, Jesus, if you love me, why do I hurt? If this is you, run to the Master tonight.

35And the same day, when the even was come, he saith unto them, Let us pass over unto the other side. 36And when they had sent away the multitude, they took him even as he was in the ship. And there were also with him other little ships. 37And there arose a great storm of wind, and the waves beat into the ship, so that it was now full. 38And 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? 39And he arose, and rebuked the wind, and said unto the sea, Peace, be still. And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm. 40And he said unto them, Why are ye so fearful? how is it that ye have no faith? 41And they feared exceedingly, and said one to another, What manner of man is this, that even the wind and the sea obey him? (KJV)
