Wow, what a month. The Lord has been so good to us here at Crestview. What a thrill to see people making decisions and the Holy Spirit moving. As I sit here and write this I am reminded of Peter, the Apostle, as he watches Jesus walking on the water. As each of the Disciples sit perfectly content on the boat, Peter says in Mt 14:28; “Lord, if it be thou, bid me come unto thee on the water. 29 And he said, Come. And when Peter was come down out of the ship, he walked on the water, to go to Jesus.”
What an example for us to see Jesus at work and desire to do the same thing. Walking on the water wasn't the norm, but Peter felt if Jesus was in the middle of the water, that is where he also wanted to be. What will each of us desire from the Lord in the weeks and months ahead? Will we be happy just watching, or will we step off the boat and ask the Lord to let us join in and be part of what he is doing. I know the Lord wants us to Come. There may be waves, there may be storms, but the Master is right there ready to lift us up and keep us walking.
Stepping off the Boat,
