walking on water by faith
Walking on water – by faith
  • Was Peter showing off, proving he had more faith than others?
  • The storm caused him to walk by faith.
  • He wanted to be close to Jesus.
  • Hb 11:6 “Without faith it is impossible to please God.”
  • 2 Cor5:7 – “We walk by faith not by sight.”
  • Storms should draw us closer to Jesus. (“Boat folk” just hunker down….)
1 the success in the walk
1. The success in the walk
  • Jesus called. Peter responded. That’s faith.
  • (He stepped out on a single word from the Lord.)
  • A walk of faith requires obedience.
  • Mk 9:23 “… Everything is possible to him that believes.” (trust & obey!)
  • Obedience to the Word of God, and the leading of the Holy Spirit, will guide our walk.
2 the sinking in the walk
2. The sinking in the walk
  • Fear will always cause you to “sink.”
  • Looking at our circumstances can “sink” us.
  • The enemy will always encourage us to take our eyes off of Jesus and to look elsewhere for what we need in the storm, anything to eliminate or, at the very least, minimize our fear, concerns, our pain and discomfort.
3 the saving in the walk
3. The saving in the walk
  • When “going down,” cry out to Jesus to save you.
  • He didn’t drown in his troubles, or give up in his troubles – he prayed…
  • …And Jesus heard his cry!
4 the scolding after the walk
4. The scolding after the walk
  • “….why did you doubt?” (Jesus’ tone is chiding but tender)
  • Peter had seen Jesus heal his sick mother- in-law, turn water into wine, feed 5,000 – he had no legitimate reason to doubt.
  • How many times have you watched the Lord do something miraculous in your life?
  • Do you still doubt?
closing thoughts
Closing thoughts…
  • Faith is more than believing in spite of the circumstances. It’s obedience in spite of the consequences.
  • Unbelief can rob you just as surely as the devil himself. The voice of unbelief often is backed by reason, but following & obeying Jesus does not too often require reason. If it did, it wouldn’t be faith that motivates.
be blessed
Be blessed!
  • Heb 12:1b &2 “…let us lay aside every encumbrance and the sin that entangles us, and let us run the race set before us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of faith…”
  • 2 Tim 4:7 “I have fought the good fight, I have finished the course, I have kept the faith;”
