The disciples marvelled at Jesus, 'What kind of Man is this? Even the winds and the waves obey Him!' Despite all the miracles they had witnessed, something happened that one day which completely astonished them. We too need to rediscover the reality of who Jesus really is; He has power to completely change our lives.

Matthew 8.23-27, 'Jesus was entered into a ship and His disciples followed Him. Suddenly a furious storm came up on the lake, so that the waves swept over the boat. But Jesus was sleeping. The disciples went and woke Him, saying, "Lord, save us! We're going to drown!" He replied, "O you of little faith, why are you so afraid?" Then He got up and rebuked the winds and the waves, and it was completely calm. The men were amazed and asked, "What kind of Man is this? Even the winds and the waves obey Him!"'

I believe one of the most challenging questions for all of us today is, 'Who is Jesus?' What kind of Man is He? Jesus is no ordinary person. There is something so different about Him. I want you to understand His Power and Authority. In this Bible story, we see something unusual about Jesus, something which shocked His disciples. Jesus had got into a boat with His disciples. The men He was with were not ordinary men, they were strong fishermen. They were used to storms. All sailors know what it is like to be in a storm; they had been out fishing many times before in all weathers. But something happened this day which would shock them. 

The second thing I want you to understand, they knew Jesus. They knew more about Him than almost anybody. They lived with Him. They worked with Him. They had seen all the miracles. If only we could have as much time with Jesus as these men had. And yet, despite the time they had spent with Him, something happened this one day, which was to change their whole understanding of who Jesus is. 

I know there is a lot of religion in the world, but religion doesn't change men's hearts and characters. We need to find the reality of who Jesus is, to answer for ourselves, 'What kind of Man is He?'
