“Lord, if it’s you,” Peter replied, “tell me to come to you on the water.” “Come,” he said. Then Peter got down out of the boat, walked on the water and came toward Jesus. (Matthew 28-29)
By the time I met my husband, I had had enough negative experiences to cause me to be suspicious of everyone, even Gene. But he had soothed my skepticism with one word, “I’m telling you the truth. You choice whether or not to believe it.” Wow! I had a choice to make—trust my husband or not. Our future rested on my decision. I chose to trust him. He didn’t let me down. I had a lot of growing to do in order to develop that trust. But the moment I chose to trust Gene, my life changed.
When Jesus told Peter to step out of boat during that horrific storm, Peter had to choice to make—trust the Master or not.
Tomorrow, we’ll examine the gift of Jesus’ presence. Prepare by studying Mark 2:1-2.
See you in a twinkling,
