Bridge over Troubled Water

Bridge Over Troubled Waters (Mark 4:35-41)

Minister Barbara Williams, March 15, 2015

Our Spiritual walk will bring us to a bridge like the song "Bridge over Troubled Waters"
Our kids are subjected to a lot of prejudices in schools today. Diseases, job, conflicts in the home, sadness and grief. These are all problems. Troubles are all around us. God is our bridge over troubled waters... Still waters run deep. We need to teach our children good from evil to avoid troubles that is to come in life.
Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego - God was with them in the fire.
Daniel in the den of lions - God took the taste out of the lions mouth.

Lazarus - rose from the dead
Blind man - could see
Woman with an issue of blood - she touched the hem of Jesus's garment.

Paul - was able to get away.
Paul - got out of jail.

Bridging the Gap: this gap exists because of sin. The only way to get to Jesus Christ is through Jesus Christ. Put yourselves in the right environment so that you would not be tempted to do the wrong things. Jesus came to bridge the gap for us. His is the bridge in troubled waters.

Mark 4:35-41
And the same day, when the even was come, he saith unto them, Let us pass over unto the other side. And when they had sent away the multitude, they took him even as he was in the ship. And there were also with him other little ships. And there arose a great storm of wind, and the waves beat into the ship, so that it was now full. And he was in the hinder part of the ship, asleep on a pillow: and they awake him, and say unto him, Master, carest thou not that we perish? And he arose, and rebuked the wind, and said unto the sea, Peace, be still. And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm. And he said unto them, Why are ye so fearful? how is it that ye have no faith? And they feared exceedingly, and said one to another, What manner of man is this, that even the wind and the sea obey him?

Job 14:1
? Man that is born of a woman
is of few days, and full of trouble.

And these three men, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, fell down bound into the midst of the burning fiery furnace.

They answered and said unto the king, True, O king.

And there are also many other things which Jesus did, the which, if they should be written every one, I suppose that even the world itself could not contain the books that should be written. Amen.
