In the third story (a favorite for anyone who has studied the life and ministry of Peter), I quickly call to mind my little nickname for Peter. "Impetuous Pete." Yet I am also reminded that while Peter didn't have enough faith to stay afloat on his feet, he did have enough faith to get out of the boat and walk toward the Savior.

 

Would I? Would you? Or would we have simply held on to the side of the boat for dear life? Would we have even been in the boat? Would we have followed Him so readily, being willing to leave our lives, family, friends, and earthly work behind?

 

And this is part of what I learned when I fell into the Bible.
