Are you a Water-Walker?

Last Sunday as part of our "Summer by the Lake" message series here at the E-Free Church in Gaylord, Michigan, we saw part one of a sermon called "Water-Walking." Last week we saw the storm that the disciples were in on the Sea of Galilee and their fear as they saw what appeared to be some sort of phantom approaching them walking on the water. We then saw that this approaching figure was really Jesus who was making their trial His very footpath.

This Sunday we will finish the story as we see Peter becoming a "Water-Walker." Out of the 12 disciples in the boat that day, Peter was the only one to step out of the boat. The rest of those guys were what we could call "Boat Potatoes."

So what is your boat? Your boat is whatever represents safety and security apart from God - whatever you put your trust in when life gets stormy. Your boat can be identified as the thing that causes you the most fear when you think of leaving it behind. So when was the last time you stepped outside of your boat? What does it take to step out of our boat?

Sunday we will see three aspects that were involved in Peter's stepping out of his boat. Join us here at E-Free to learn what it takes to be a "Water-Walker"!
