Pastor’s Piece

We’re in the middle of our sermon series called Deeper Waters where we’re looking into the stories that happened in Jesus’ life when he was at the lake. Our scripture this week looks into the story of Peter’s step of faith. Peter was given the opportunity to walk on the water, but in order to do so he had to choose his faith in Jesus over his own fears. We all strive to believe in and live for God, but it’s not easy to always act on our beliefs. Even Peter struggled to believe fully in Jesus- to trust that what Jesus asked of him would be worth the risk and help him to live life to the fullest.

Blessed to bless,

Pastor Andy
