Peter; If You Want To Walk On Water

Dan Augsburger

I have been increasingly convicted that God is calling us back from the independent ways that seem to prevail in so many quarters these days, including the church. Along this line, a popular book's title, If You Want to Walk On Water, Get Out Of the Boat, seems to express the independence mantra well. Yet, Peter's walk on the water was a point of weakness, not strength! In pondering this, I was reminded, "But if you want to walk with Jesus, let Him take you by the hand, and let Him lead you back into the boat."
