A Sinking Feeling

Can we go back to last week’s Bible story, person? The one where Jesus fed all those people and they had lots of leftovers for me?

What? You’re going to tell me a different story? Well, there’d better be food in it then.


After Jesus fed all the people…


And I ate the leftovers.

I am listening.


Jesus urged his disciples to get into the boat and head across the lake for Capernaum while He dismissed the crowd.

After the crowd left, Jesus went up on a mountain to pray and when evening came he was there alone.


I wonder if Jesus would like me to come and give him some loves.

Okay, I’ll listen.


The boat the disciples were in was already way out on the lake and it was being tossed around on the waves because the wind was against it.


I hope those disciples didn’t get sea sick.


In the middle of the night Jesus took a walk on the lake and headed for the disciples. When the disciples saw Jesus they thought He was a ghost and they were terrified.

But Jesus told them it was Him and said not to be afraid.


I wouldn’t be afraid. I’d jump into the water with Jesus.

I wonder if he has any sticks for me to fetch.

Yes, I’m listening.


Peter said, “Lord, if it’s you tell me to come to you on the water.

Jesus said, “Come.”

Peter got out of the boat and walked on the water toward Jesus.


Did Peter jump right in with a big splash. That’s what I would do.


When Peter saw the wind he was afraid and began to sink. He cried out to Jesus, “Lord, save me!”


Why doesn’t Peter just do the dog paddle?


Immediately Jesus reached out His hand and caught Peter. And Jesus said to Peter, “You of little faith, why did you doubt?”

When Jesus and Peter climbed into the boat the wind died down. Those who were in the boat worshiped Jesus and said, “Truly you are the Son of God.”


I sure hope that when Peter started sinking he felt some fish swimming around his feet and grabbed them. All this walking on water is making me hungry.
