You know you read this story below, and if you have not grown up with it, you might just have to think, what a bunch of freaks? He walked 3 miles on Water!!! 3 Miles! 5K? or he walked all the way around the sea to join them? I dunno, that’s pretty freaky. But If its true, then… oh then we just get a glimpse of the power of our Savior.
I think I will join the freaks, and believe this one. How about you? Are you freaky today?
John 6:15-21New International Version (NIV)
15Jesus, knowing that they intended to come and make him king by force, withdrew again to a mountain by himself.
Jesus Walks on the Water
16When evening came, his disciples went down to the lake, 17where they got into a boat and set off across the lake for Capernaum. By now it was dark, and Jesus had not yet joined them. 18A strong wind was blowing and the waters grew rough. 19When they had rowed three or three and a half miles,[a] they saw Jesus approaching the boat, walking on the water; and they were terrified. 20But he said to them, “It is I; don’t be afraid.” 21Then they were willing to take him into the boat, and immediately the boat reached the shore where they were heading.
