Let All Our Strivings Cease

“…a leper appeared and went to his knees before Jesus, praying, “Master, if you want to, you can heal my body.”

Jesus reached out and touched him, saying, “I want to. Be clean.”

Matthew 8:2&3 (The Message)


“Save us, Lord!” they said. “We are about to die!”

“Why are you so frightened?” Jesus answered. “What little faith you have!” Then he got up and ordered the winds and the waves to stop, and there was a great calm.

“What kind of man is this?” they said. “Even the winds and the waves obey him!”

Matthew 8:27 (GNT)
