Jesus didn’t hesitate. He reached down and grabbed his hand. Then he said, “Faint-heart, what got into you?”
(Matthew 14:31 MSG)
Peter. The rash one. Tosses out an ultimatum to Jesus who is walking on the water as the wind and waves beat the boat back and forth.
If it’s really you, call me…
Jesus calls him and soon Peter is out of the boat and focused on the circumstances and not the Savior. He begins to sink. But Jesus doesn’t hesitate. First he reaches out to save. Then he talks with Peter about his faith.
You are called.
Circumstances are alluring.
Jesus never hesitates.
And then there’s faith.
