The Fifth Sunday after Pentecost
June 23, 2024
 
The Savior Rules Over the Wind and the Wave
 
Just as Jesus exercises his saving power—think of last Sunday’s focus on the power of the Word to grow the garden of faith—Jesus also exercises his creating power. No planet revolves in the universe, no heat generates from the sun, no star twinkles in the sky without the power and will of him who sits at the right hand of God. This was the power Jesus displayed in the Gospel for today—his power over the weather. We come away from this miracle with the same reaction as his first followers: “Even the wind and the waves obey him.”
 
 
Prayer of the Day
 
O Lord our God, so govern the nations on earth and direct the affairs of this world that your church may worship you in peace and joy; through your Son, Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.
