Midweek Message, August 9, 2017

26 But when the disciples saw him walking on the sea, they were terrified, saying, “It is a ghost!” And they cried out in fear. 27 But immediately Jesus spoke to them and said, “Take heart, it is I; do not be afraid.” Matthew 14:26-27

This is a part of the passage Rev. Carle will be preaching about this Sunday. It is the story of Jesus walking on the water. This passage, in Matthew’s gospel follows immediately after the feeding of the 5000.

In the Bible we find angels and Jesus saying these words over and over to us humans. “Fear Not! or “Do Not Be Afraid!” Why is it we are such fear-filled beings? At least Jesus and the angels know us well enough to give us a warning! 🙂

In my own life, I find that fear, in some form or another, is what keeps me from advancing in so many aspects of life. Whether it be my faith walk, relationships, or the future….fear is what often holds me back. May we all heed the words of Jesus and act boldly, without fear, knowing that God is always with us and always for us!



Thank you to those feeding the hungry at The Source this coming Sunday!
