Mark 4:41 (HCSB)

And they were terrified and asked one another, “Who then is this? Even the wind and the sea obey Him!”

I highlighted “is” because it’s the way I imagine the disciples saying this.  I never tire of reading this story because it is so very amazing.  What kind of person thinks that he can get the forces of nature to obey his command?!  What kind of person can get the forces of nature to obey his command?  

This is such a fantastic demonstration of the fact that all creation is subject to its creator—subject to his authority and commands. What an amazing demonstration this was to the disciples and quite obvious why they never forgot it.  Would you forget it if you witnessed such an event?
