There are many times when Jesus asks us to do what seems impossible. How can we ever begin to do the task that he has called us to do?
If we, like Peter, look at the wind and the waves – then we will conclude that it is impossible. What we are called to do – it’s so basic and yet so obvious, yet so hard to put into practice – is to keep our eyes fixed on Jesus, and our ears open for his encouragement. Our wills and hearts must be ready to do what he says, even if it seems crazy at the time.
Tomorrow at 11.15am, Ottery St Mary Parish Church, Roy and Pat help make the link between this story and the bigger Bible picture.
