This audiobook opens with the story of Jesus and his disciples crossing the Sea of Galilee, where Jesus rebukes the wind and waves of a deadly storm (Mark 4:37-40). According to J.C. Ryle, this story is full of instructions for all of us.
He explains under five headings what we are to learn:
- Christ’s service will not secure us against troubles.
- The Lord Jesus Christ is truly man as well as God.
- Believers may have much weakness, yet still be true believers.
- Christ has all power.
- Christ is full of kindness toward his people.
Ryle ends with a description of his purpose in writing: “I want believers to know Jesus better that they may be more happy, more holy, and more meet (fit) for the inheritance of the saints in light.”
