4. It soon turned into a gale, the dreaded Euroclydon.
B. They had exhausted every physical resource.

3. They finally threw the tackling overboard.
C. It was at this point they lost all hope of ever being saved.
D. With the ship now helplessly driven by the storm, Paul stands up before the crew and passengers with a message.
1. "Be of good cheer, I believe God."
2. There are circumstances of life when only a belief in God can sustain you.
a. After all human resources exhausted.
b. When there seems no way out.
3. What comfort could Paul have brought to this hopeless frightened crew? "...I am an atheist."
II. BELIEF IN GOD NOT JUST SOMETHING TO FALL BACK 0N WHEN ALL ELSE FAILS.
A. God often is but never should be man's last resort.

2. God will see him through.
b. Belonging to God and serving God is the logical consequence of believing God.
1. Every man who believes in God should belong to God.
2. Every man who believes in God should serve God.
c. Strange paradox today.
1. Many affirming a belief who do not belong to Him, who do not serve.
2. Hearts are fraught with fear in this chaotic world.
3. People seem to move from one crisis to the next disaster with no hope.
4. No wonder alcoholism and drug use is on the rise, people can't cope without God.
III. THE RESULT OF ONE MAN'S FAITH.
A. After he spoke he took bread and gave God thanks.
1. He encouraged them all to eat.
