Not only do we here learn that Jesus comes to the very worst, and is willing to enlighten them, but that He can change the very worst-that He does enlighten them. The Sun of Righteousness has not only arose on Galilee, but He rose "with healing in His beams." "Its common people heard Him gladly." His best converts, his truest and most trustworthy friends were from the ports, and fishing boats, and villages around Gennesaret. Oh, if He effected such a change on them, there is no room for despondency "That is the true light which enlightens every one that comes into the world." He is willing to take up His home in every soul-though that soul be as the valley of the shadow of death. "God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, is willing to shine into that heart with the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ." Whatever your darkness may be, Christ can relieve it; Christ can dispel it If your heart be as a Gennesaret swept with storms, He will come and whisper in your ears, as He did of old, His calming words - "Peace, be still."
