Why are you so afraid?

These days reflecting on the events around me, doubts and anxieties of loved ones near and far and in my own brought me different emotions, some tears and a lot of thirst for knowledge of God’s word.

In our journey in the book of Mark we come to chapter 5, and what strikes me most attention in this chapter is the word faith (believing).

In fact in chapter 4:40, Jesus asks the disciples, Why are you so afraid? Still have no faith?

Mar 5: 34b Jesus says, your faith has healed you.

Mar 5:36 Jesus says, do not be afraid, only believe.

We insist on a small life in Christ. While he calls us to a banquet.

The immensity of His plan needs to be further studied and understood by those who call him Savior.

The divisions caused by taste and preferences has made havoc in our lives. In distracting and diverting the target which is Jesus.

How many opportunities we left behind?

I conclude leaving you with Jesus’ question:

Why are you so afraid? Still have no faith?
