On that day, when evening had come, he said to them, “Let us go across to the other side.” And leaving the crowd, they took him with them in the boat, just as he was. And other boats were with him. And a great windstorm arose, and the waves were breaking into the boat, so that the boat was already filling. But he was in the stern, asleep on the cushion. And they woke him and said to him, “Teacher, do you not care that we are perishing?” And he awoke and rebuked the wind and said to the sea, “Peace! Be still!” And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm. He said to them, “Why are you so afraid? Have you still no faith?” And they were filled with great fear and said to one another, “Who then is this, that even the wind and the sea obey him?” (Mark 4:35-41)

Just as day was breaking, Jesus stood on the shore; yet the disciples did not know that it was Jesus. Jesus said to them, “Children, do you have any fish?” They answered him, “No.” He said to them, “Cast the net on the right side of the boat, and you will find some.” So they cast it, and now they were not able to haul it in, because of the quantity of fish. (John 21:4-6)

Search me, O God, and know my heart!
    Try me and know my thoughts!
(Psalm 139:23)

Key Thought

Throughout this series, we have learned a lot about the holiness of God the Father. We have seen how God’s holiness sets Him above and apart from everything in this world, and we have learned how this holiness directly impacts our lives through God’s grace and justice. In this week’s video, you will learn how this same holiness applies to Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit. Watch the sixth and final video in our series from Ligonier Ministries.


Reflect on everything you have learned through this series. Take a moment to talk with God about how you’d like this information to change your life and faith moving forward.
