John: Walking on Water

John 6:16-21

Have you ever had the experience of being startled by someone, feeling momentarily scared and frightened, only to realize very quickly that it’s actually your spouse or your friend? What a relief it is in that moment when your fears quickly give way to calmness, and you can say, “I’m so glad that was you!” Jesus’ disciples had an experience a bit like that one night, but on a bigger scale, out in the middle of the Sea of Galilee. Approaching their boat, in the midst of a storm, they saw a human figure walking on the water, and they were terrified! But soon enough, they heard the voice of Jesus telling them, “It’s me. Don’t be afraid.” And their fears dissolved immediately. Join us as we look at that famous story together in John 6:16-21 and see what the Lord would have us to learn from it nearly 2,000 years later!
