On Getting Out of the Boat

Walking on water is about courage, faith boldness…but ‘trying harder’ AS PETER DID, doesn’t address the steadiness of the disciples (and their trying harder as they pulled their oars against the wind and waves. What’s more it doesn’t allow us to see where Jesus was and what he DID in this passage. Jesus was a very present help in time of trouble…to the one who stepped from the boat and the ones who stayed inside it. Jesus’ presence and power is the key to this passage not whether we have the faith and courage to step out of the boat.

Matthew 14:22-23
