Max Lucado (In the Eye of the Storm), commenting about the disciples worshiping Jesus after being saved from the stormy sea (Matt. 14:33), said, “…only after the incident on the sea did they worship him. Why? Simple. This time they were the ones who were saved.” This sermon borrows this thought and develops the idea that personal salvation is the necessary ingredient in order for worship to be genuine.
