Matthew 8:18-27 ~ Confirm the Kingdom 35

Matthew 8:18-27 ~ Confirm the Kingdom
350 years before Jesus was born, Aristotle taught heavy objects fell faster than lighter ones, and that idea persisted for 2000 years. Galileo proved that objects fall at the same rate in the late 1500’s. It took almost 200 years for Galileo’s proof to overturn Aristotle’s popular-but-wrong idea.
Jesus knew that God’s Kingdom was different than the popular idea – but to communicate that concept to the average person was a challenge.
To Belong to God’s Kingdom:
Count The Cost To Follow Christ (Matthew 8:18-22)
See The Savior, not The Storm (Matthew 8:23-27)
Jesus’ authority is a REFLECTION of WHO He IS. He is Lord of Heaven and Earth – when we recognize that in our own lives, our inner storms will also be at peace.
