Jesus Calls Us to Step Out On Faith

Third in the series: “Tales of the Sea” Matthew 14:22-33

Dr. Tim Bruster

Dear Friends,

Continuing our series “Tales of the Sea”, we’re now going to be looking at a story that is set on the Sea of Galilee. Literally. This story of Peter’s bold faith in stepping out of the boat — and the fear that overtook him — captures many of the emotions we’ve all experienced as followers of Jesus, ever since the Disciples first walked with Jesus in Galilee nearly two millennia ago.

It is the story of Jesus walking on the water.

So here are the Disciples. They are exhausted, frightened, skeptical, hopeful, confident, courageous, doubtful — and amazed. As this story unfolds we know that surely the members of the Early Church could see themselves in this story. Read more.

Robert Stovall gives a quick preview of the music offering for this Sunday.
