This morning in Bible Study, we explored a familiar story – Jesus walking on water and Peter joining him. We reflected on some of the traditional implications when Jeff offered a very searching insight.
Could it be the story, which begins at thee end of the miracle of the “feeding of thee 5000” (in Matthew), is a case in point for expressing confidence in Jesus through various circumstances. He charges the disciples to go to the other side without him, they face a ferocious storm, Jesus comes walking on water, Peter shows his confidence in Jesus by joining him on the water, he falters amidst distractions yet knows to call on Jesus, Jesus joins them in the boat and yet they still must row for another mile to reach the destination.
Could this be one more occasion where the journey was the goal more than the destination?
Great connections Jeff.
