This morning I preached on Peter’s water walking. Most people remember that Jesus came walking on the water in the middle of a storm and Peter got out of the boat and walked on the water for a while before realising what he was doing and starting to sink.
My message was simple. If you want to walk on water you have to get out of the boat. We all cling to our comfort zones. We all gravitate to the places where life is a little easier and we aren’t asked to risk so much. The thing is, those comfortable places aren’t where we are called to be. We’re called to be out there on the water, walking in the storm.
That for me is a challenge. I like what I like. Stepping out into the storm is scary.
