Grace- filled Courage

Taking that first step

The Disciples See Christ Walking on the Water

When I look at this painting, what I see is Peter on the brink of deciding to trust Christ ( or not!) And I imagine what fear he might have had and yet the great compelling attraction to Christ and fully-awakened desire to live one with Him.  He could have remained somewhat comfortably in the boat.  And yet, he had already heard the call, he had already witnessed his heart’s greatest desire: his Beloved Lord.  He had to respond one way or another.  My heart sings for joy knowing the grace God gave him to step out of the boat, and that grace is also given to me.  Praise be Jesus!
