TOMAS [a church father preaching to the gatherers] : Now, Peter… he never misses a chance to show off.
He sees Jesus walking across the water and he says, “You know something, I bet I can do that.”
And so Jesus tells him, “Get out of the boat, start walking.”
Peter starts walking across the water, he’s having a great time, waving to everyone.
Except, again, this is Peter we’re talking about.
And what does he do?
He looks down.
What do you think happens next?
That’s right, he drops like a rock. Just like that.
And then Jesus grabs his arm, tosses him back into the boat and he says, “What’s wrong with you? I said you could walk on water. Why didn’t you believe me?”
It’s okay to have doubt.
It’s okay to have questions.
God wants you to find your own way.
But sometimes, every now and then, God gives you a job to do.
And when that happens, you have to drop everything and just start walking.
