Have you ever felt like you were on top of the world? Nothing could stop you? You could do anything and you did not need help at all? Who would need anyone else if you could walk on water?
I wonder how Simon Peter felt when he stepped out of that boat and began walking on the water. At least, he had his eyes focused where they should be – right on Jesus Christ. I wonder if he began to get pride in himself, though. When he turned away from Jesus, he sank and it was only because of Jesus that he was saved from the crashing waves around him.
It’s only when a person is sinking that they can be saved. They have to realize their helplessness without Jesus Christ. They have to realize that they cannot walk on water or deal, at times, with even the day-to-day stuff in their lives.
Christ is my strength. He is my best friend. He is my guide. He talks to me through the Holy Spirit and through His Word.
Don’t sink without Christ. Reach out your hand to Him and He will save you.
