SAA Notes

In the midst of grief, Jesus could look at the needs of others and be filled with compassion. He was truly a great man. His resurrection makes Him all the greater!

SJA Notes

* God Above, thank You for giving us Your word. Please help us understand it.

“So Peter got out of the boat and walked on water and came to Jesus.”

There is much in the common meta understanding of “walking on water”.

Here we see Peter actually walking on water.

He gets out of the boat and, at least for the first bit, doesn’t sink.

What kind of God do we follow?

What kind of Saviour has called us out of darkness into light?

Our God and Saviour has complete and utter control over every part of creation.

He not only wrote the code for every piece of all that is made, but He knows what to do with that code!

For Him, suspending the physical laws of objects and weight and density does not present any issue.

This is our God.

This is our Saviour!

It is good for us to remember that Jesus is not only the energy by which the world was made, but also the energy that continues to sustain all of this!

* Dear God,

Thank You for Jesus, who saves us from sin.

Thank You for Your Spirit, who continues to work within us, drawing us closer to You.

And thank You Father for who You are. Loving and kind, faithful and true.

May we serve You with all our hearts this day and onwards.

Amen.
