“Lord, if it’s you,” Peter replied, “tell me to come to you on the water.”

29 ”Come,” he said.

Then Peter got down=
out of the boat, walked on the water and came toward Jesus.
 30 But when he saw the wind, he was afraid and, b=
eginning to sink, cried out, “Lord, save me!”

 Immediately Jesus reached out his hand and caught him.


Matthew 14:28-31a



Fearless Wet Shoes

At a rally last night, Bishop Jerry Macklin,=
2d Presiding Bishop of the COGIC churches, apologized to the host pastor o=
f the rally.  ”I’m sorry for bringing wet shoes into the pulpit” he sa=
id.  He was referring to remarks I made on the passage above. When Pet=
er walked on the water towards Jesus, he grew afraid because of the real da=
nger of what was around him.  I admonished the people gathered that Pe=
ter actually was in the safest place, in the arms of Jesus.  The other=
11 disciples thought they were safe in the boat, but that was a false safe=
ty.  I said, “You faithful people think you are safer in the sanctuari=
es while the violence explodes around you, but Jesus is out on the street. =
 What are you going to do?”.  Stepping out on faith is a risky ve=
nture, and sometimes, being safe in the arms of Jesus also means walking ou=
t on the water in a storm.  Bishop Macklin admonished us to be careful=
:  dry shoes may be an indication of a weak faith.  How about you=
?  Is it time to step out today?

Teach me O Lord, ho=
w to look for you in the storms of my life, and bless me as I walk on faith=
to be closer to You, in Jesus name, AMEN.

God bless,


Rev. Jeffrey Brown
