Message: Open Waters
Matthew 14:22-33

It is a story we know so well.  It is dark, there is the wind, the waves, the lighting and then, seemingly out of nowhere comes Jesus.  Walking out to his disciples on the water.  There is fear and terror, there are questions.  Yet through the noise we hear a voice speak and say, I AM. Don’t be afraid.  Then in bold Peter like fashion, Peter speaks, Lord tell me to come to you on the water.  Jesus calls and Peter steps out.  It is there Peter hears the voice of Jesus and follows Him into the unknown.  It is faith and it is what Jesus has called his followers to display for the world around them.  Ultimately, it is what WE DO for Christ that is evidence of our faith, NOT what WE THINK WE SHOULD.
