I'm still reading through Matthew (we may talk about this whole journey when it’s over lol), and I’ve reached yet another landmark Bible story. Once again, I’m interested and see things I’ve never really noticed before. Once again, I’m way too excited to share this with y’all. Once again, we’ve got a bit of work to do, and we definitely don’t have all day to do it (baby girl has class this great morning lol). Are you ready? I’m ready. Let’s do what we came here to do….
So I ready through chapter 14 the other day…and I got stuck on verses 24-33. It’s the famed story of Peter (and Jesus, can’t forget sweet Jesus) walking on water. As a church kid, I’d heard this scripture at least a dozen times (for every year I’ve been alive). I understood that Jesus popped up one night. I understood that Peter asked to join him out there, looked down, got scared, and almost died. I understood that Jesus saved him. I understood that this is an example of faith and God's ability to pick us up right on time. I got all of the basics, but there were a few things that stood out to me that I never caught in all of those sermons. What are they? Oh I’m so elated that you asked! lol
