The Sin of Presumption Part II

“And Peter answered Him and said, ‘Lord, if it is you, command me to come to you on the water.’ And He said, ‘Come!’ And Peter got out of the boat, and walked on the water and came toward Jesus. But seeing the wind, he became afraid, and beginning to sink, he cried out, saying, ‘Lord, save me!’ And immediately Jesus stretched out His hand and took hold of him, and said to him, ‘O you of little faith, why did you doubt?'” Matt. 14:28-31 Why did Peter assume that Jesus wanted him to walk on water? What made Peter think that he was to participate in the spectacular? Why is Peter making Jesus prove Himself? Well, here is the awesome thing about choice; you can have what you want. If you want to be “like” Jesus, He will let you try. Jesus was already going to Peter. Why did Peter want to go to Him? What was in it for Peter? Let Jesus come to you; He has started the journey, and He will get to you. In every other religion it is man going to God. But we know that Jesus comes to us, and if we break the order, we drown. No man has the power, system, or even the faith for the journey to Jesus, Who is the greatest. As the greatest, we cannot find Him. He must make the journey to us. Our doubt and lack of faith will always be revealed. I believe it is better to acknowledge our doubt, and little faith, and let Him come to us. He will find us; He found the disciples in the midst of the storm.
