“Come,” he said. Then Peter got down out of the boat, walked on the water and came toward Jesus. But when he saw the wind, he was afraid and, beginning to sink, cried out, “Lord, save me!”

– Matthew 14:29-30 (NIV)

Today’s commentary
by Dave Whitehead, Senior Pastor, GraceNYC.org

We often look at the story of Peter walking on the water in terms of the fact that he eventually sank, but we must always remember that Peter was the only one who stepped out of the boat. On top of that, Peter knew who to call out to when he was overwhelmed by his surroundings. No matter what we think about Peter, we will never know if we will sink or swim until we are willing to step out of the boat, but either way we still have access to the One who can save us in the wind and waves. The call of Jesus is to step out of our comfort zones and leave the results to Him.
