A Stroll on the Lake
by Berni Dymet
John 6:19 When they had rowed about three or four miles, they saw Jesus walking on the sea and coming near the boat, and they were terrified.
Imagine this for a moment. You're out in a boat on a lake. A huge storm blows in - and the boat starts pitching and tossing and you get this real sense of fear.
And while all this is going on - you look out - and you see someone out for a stroll. Not along the shoreline - no - out on the lake. This someone is walking on water.
He gets into your boat and the storm ceases. Pretty amazing stuff.
Now we can argue about whether that actually ever happened. I for one believe with all my heart that Jesus did walk on that lake.
The question though is - does it happen today. When we're in our small boat on this big ocean of life, and the storm blows in - does Jesus come out and get in our boat and calm our storm? Maybe that's more to the point.
Well - I for one can tell you - He does. I've been through some shockers in my life - and one day, one day I invited Him into my boat.
