This past week I had the privilege of speaking in chapel at Adams County Christian Academy in Gettysburg, PA.  There were 23 students from 7th through 12th grade.   After we sang a couple “worship songs”, I had 25 minutes to share with them.  

We read Luke 8:22 – 25.  You know the story – where Jesus and His disciples are in a boat crossing the Sea of Galilee when a fierce storm comes over them and the disciples are afraid that they will sink and drown.

I asked them all what Jesus was doing – “He was sleeping.” The disciples were afraid – and – Jesus was sleeping. 

They woke Him up and He calmly calmed the storm.  Imagine being in that boat!   The sea became like a glass mirror.  Jesus asks them a pointed question, “Where is your faith?” 

 We talked about “faith” and where we often place our faith. 

 We concluded with Joshua 1:9

“Have I not commanded you?  Be Strong and courageous!  Do not tremble or be dismayed for (this is the reason why) The LORD your God is with you wherever you go.” 

Where is your faith?       Remember – “The LORD your God is with you wherever you go.”

Thank You for helping 23 students learn a bit more about “faith” this past week.
