Walking On The Water

When I was younger, I used to walk on the water. I'd drive the 25 miles down to Lake Erie (I live on the Canadian side, just across the lake from the United States), park my car, and walk out from the shore onto the deep waters of the lake. I wasn't the only one, there were many others out ice fishing in January and February, catching mostly perch through small holes bored through the ice with an ice auger. The water-ice on the lake in late winter is usually a foot or more thick, so there was absolutely nothing miraculous about that form of walking on the water.

Jesus Christ miraculously walked on the water, not on water in the form of solid ice as I used to do, but on the never-frozen waters of The Sea Of Galilee. Peter did too, for as long as his faith held him up.

"he walked on the water, to go to Jesus"

The Sea of Galilee It had been a day full of miracles. The Messiah had just fed thousands of people with a miraculously multiplied five loaves of bread and two fish. But the day of miracles wasn't yet done.

"And they did all eat, and were filled: and they took up of the fragments that remained twelve baskets full. And they that had eaten were about five thousand men, beside women and children."

"And straightway Jesus constrained His disciples to get into a ship, and to go before Him unto the other side, while He sent the multitudes away. And when He had sent the multitudes away, He went up into a mountain apart to pray: and when the evening was come, He was there alone. But the ship was now in the midst of the sea, tossed with waves: for the wind was contrary."

"And in the fourth watch of the night Jesus went unto them, walking on the sea. And when the disciples saw Him walking on the sea, they were troubled, saying, It is a spirit; and they cried out for fear."

"But straightway Jesus spake unto them, saying, Be of good cheer; it is I; be not afraid."

"And Peter answered Him and said, Lord, if it be Thou, bid me come unto Thee on the water."

"And he said, Come."

"And when Peter was come down out of the ship, he walked on the water, to go to Jesus. But when he saw the wind boisterous, he was afraid; and beginning to sink, he cried, saying, Lord, save me."

"And immediately Jesus stretched forth His hand, and caught him, and said unto him, O thou of little faith, wherefore didst thou doubt?"

"And when they were come into the ship, the wind ceased. Then they that were in the ship came and worshipped Him, saying, Of a Truth thou art the Son of God."

"And when they were gone over, they came into the land of Gennesaret." (Matthew 14:20-34 KJV)
