But Jesus was asleep. 25They came and woke him, saying, “Lord, rescue us! We’re going to drown!” 26He said to them, “Why are you afraid, you people of weak faith?” Then he got up and gave orders to the winds and the lake, and there was a great calm. 27 The people were amazed and said, “What kind of person is this? Even the winds and the lake obey him!” Matthew 8:23-27 (CEB)
