The Reading of the Day is from Mark 4:35-41. This story is preceded by several parables about the kingdom of God, told by the King, Christ Himself. The crossing of the Sea of Galilee, though a true story, also serves as a kind of parable, one acted out. This body of water is particularly susceptible to such   sudden squalls as befell the disciples. A similar incident occurred later, at which time Peter tried his footing on the boisterous waters (Matthew 14:22–33; Mark 6:45–51). Just as Jesus calmed the storm with His Word for the frightened disciples, so He calms and ends the storm of sin and its certain death by taking our sin on     Himself and dying in our place so we may live eternally.
