Here is a scene to flash in your imagination: Jesus walking on top of a stormy lake. Jesus adds this miracle to the list of how God in the past has done wonders through water. Noah and the flood; God’s people walking on dry land through the Red Sea; the saving waters of baptism.
You’ll read about what happened to Peter when he saw Jesus on the water. He steps out and starts walking on water himself! Then see what happens…
