What manner of man is this?
“And, behold, there arose a veritable tempest in the sea, insomuch that the ship was covered with the waves: but he was asleep.
And his disciples came to him, and awoke him, saying, “Lord, save us: we perish.”
And he said unto them, “Why are you fearful, O you of little faith?” Then he arose, and rebuked the winds and the sea; and there was a perfect calm.
However, the men marvelled, saying, “What manner of man is this, that even the winds and the sea obey him?” (Matthew 8:24-27).
Jesus has a way of surprising us. He says things that no one else can say and does things that no one else can do. He is the Alpha and Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End. He is the bread of life.
My friends, despite what the doubters say. Jesus is alive. The writer of Hebrews 13:8, puts it this way, “Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and today, and forever.” Suffice to say, He is the same Jesus who went about all Galilee, teaching in synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing all manner of sickness and all manner of diseases among the people.
And as His fame went throughout all Syria: they brought unto him all sick people that were taken with divers diseases and torments, and those which were possessed with devils and those which were lunatics and those that had the palsy; and he healed them. (Matthew 4:23-24)
Fellow believers if you are wavering in your faith, If doubters have some how managed to convince you to throw in the towel. I dare you to think again. Jesus is no different today than He was when He walked this earth. Like the woman at the well, lives are still being touched. Like the man who was born blind, sights are being restored. And yes, water is still being turned into wine. There is only one Man I know who is capable of doing such things. His name is Jesus.
