MEMORY VERSE: “When thou passest through the water, I will be thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee” Isaiah 43:2

BIBLE TEXT: Mark 4:35-41

35. And the same day, when the even was come, he saith unto them, Let us pass over unto the other side.

36. 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.

37. And there arose a great storm of wind, and the waves beat into the ship, so that it was now full.

38. 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?

39. 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.

40. And he said unto them, Why are ye so fearful? how is it that ye have no faith?

41. And they feared exceedingly, and said one to another, What manner of man is this, that even the wind and the sea obey him?

LESSON INTRODUCTION: A lockdown is defined as a confinement of people or person in a given place. So many thing could cause lockdown of a person in life and they be physical or spiritual but in either but in either case you are restricted to a particular place by a kind of force.

In the text, we read the disciples were on their way with Jesus to “A BETTER SIDE” and the storm arose to keep them in a lockdown. A lockdown therefore could arise when you least expect but the important thing about the storm above is that Jesus was with them.

Most of the time when we get into different types of lockdowns like the disciples, we trend to forget Christians that someone is in the boat/ship with us …..Jesus. He was fully aware of the storm but He waited for them to CALL on Him.

TEXT REVIEW: MARK 4:35-41
i. we should not bound with the spirit of fear.
ii. we need to build our faith

LESSON OUTLINES:
FIVE LESSONS FROM THE TEXT
1. When you are on a destiny journey, always set out with Jesus Christ (Invite Him into your boat).
2. Lockdown may arise in form of storms.
3. Fear is usually generated to confuse.
4. Remember that Jesus is with you, call on Him.
5. A great solution, like the great calm is usually revealed.

ACTIVITY: Discuss other steps that can be taken when faced with storms.

SUMMARY: A lockdown therefore could arise when you least expected but the important thing about the storm above is that Jesus is always with us.

CONCLUSION: Lockdown may arise but never lose sight of the fact that you are not alone, there is someone in the lockdown with you, who can command the termination of the lockdown, His name is Jesus.

PRAYER POINTS
1. Father please do not leave me alone in the journey of life.

2. Father I thank you for being there for my family, marriage and ministry in the different lockdown experience.

3. Father, please let yiyour presence be upon me and my loved ones in Jesus’ name.

4. Father, help RCCG to always have Jesus in their boat of life in Jesus’ name.

5. Father, according to the Bible, I will not be moved when I pass through the waters or fire of life for Jesus is with me.
