That is it. It didn’t take more

A single word.

And … obedience! The goal is obedience.

One day he and his disciples got in a boat. “Let’s cross the lake,” he said. And off they went. It was smooth sailing, and he fell asleep. A terrific storm came up suddenly on the lake. Water poured in, and they were about to capsize. They woke Jesus: “Master, Master, we’re going to drown!”

Getting to his feet, he told the wind, “Silence!” and the waves, “Quiet down!” They did it. The lake became smooth as glass.

Luke 8:22-24 (The Message Bible)

Nature knows how to obey Jesus. It only takes one word and it does what our Master wants.

Will I respond the same? Will it only take one word with me or do I crave too much attention with lots of explanations as to “why” I should obey?

Jesus says for me to love.

What else do I need to know? Will I be like the wind and the waves?

May it be Yes and more Yes.
