Sermon Notes

   This is the fourth message in our series entitled The Miracles of Jesus. Today we are looking at Matthew’s account of Jesus and Peter walking on the Sea of Galilee.  Shortly after Jesus had fed the 5000 men plus women and children with five loaves of bread into small fish, he sent the disciples by boat to Capernaum a distance of maybe 2 miles. All of a sudden a huge storm started blowing them towards the center of the Sea. After many hours of rowing and getting nowhere, Jesus appeared to them walking on the water.
   We will look at how Jesus introduced himself, Peter’s faith to get out of the boat, why he started to sink, how we can keep from sinking in the midst of our life’s struggles or storms, and the disciples’ acknowledging Jesus’ divinity.
