A Man Called Peter II

A Man Called Peter II…

Kayfa, also known as Simon Peter, messed up. We know more about his mess ups than the mess ups of anyone else in the New Testament. He messed up rebuking the Lord, denying the Lord, comparing the Lord to Moses and Elijah, and sinking into the water.

Peter seems, often, to be stumbling through the New Testament. The main thing about Peter is not that he stumbled, but that he walked. He may have stumbled… but at least he walked.

He was the only apostle who started sinking into the water, but at least he walked on the water. None of the others sank, but none of the others walked. Which had the better portion?

It was the one who at least walked on the water. And Peter became the leader of them all. Most of the disciples and most of us would rather avoid the risk of stumbling, falling, and sinking by choosing not to step out in faith.

God is calling you to step out in faith – for better to have stepped out in faith than to have never stepped out at all.

For we live by faith, not by sight. 2 Corinthians 5:7

Take a half-step today, if that’s all you can do, by faith. At least make a start.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
