An Extraordinary Savior

The disciples were not expecting anything out of the ordinary from Jesus when He entreated them to row to the other side of the lake (while dealing with the throes of a violent storm). Ps. 50:21 “These things you have done, and I kept silence; you thought that I was just like you; I will reprove you, and state {the case} in order before your eyes.” (NAS) They may have been thinking that He was like them, being subject to the same limitations they were subject to. They were expecting ordinary things from an extraordinary Savior. If only they could have grasped the concept that He is THE MASTER OF THE STORM.  After Jesus had calmed the storm in Mk 4:41, they asked one another, “What manner of man is this?” (KJV). In other translations it reads “Who is this?” Not fully knowing who He was, and was therefore capable of, little did they know that He would be coming to join them walking on the water. “The Master of the Storm” is the answer to the question, “What manner of man is this?” When the Master is called on and relied on it is possible to get results that are out of the ordinary, for He has power over the power that threatens, even over the storm.
