THE GOSPEL OF MATTHEW
Part 38: Walking on Water
After feeding the five thousand, Jesus told the
disciples to return to the other side of Galilee. The God-man stayed
behind to pray. When He was finished, the disciples were beyond
calling distance, so Jesus simply walked across the water to meet up
with the group. The disciples were genuinely frightened when they
saw the God-man walking calmly on the turbulent water caused by the
howling storm. Peter impulsively jumped out of the boat but his
faith began to falter as he realized walking on water was not
natural. It is clear that Jesus was operating on a different plane
of existence, exercising supernatural control over the environment.
Everyone can walk on ice, but it is an entirely different matter to
walk on liquid! The God-man emphasized the fact that He had no power
in Himself and was completely dependent upon the Holy Spirit to
perform miracles. Are you relying upon the Holy Spirit?
