Get out of the Boat
I got this picture of a rowboat from the Thousand Islands tour on Lake Huron. It was a relaxing time boating through the many islands; some with nothing on them, some a single home, and one a castle. I will post more of those on the next entry. But I thought this one should stand alone.
During the fourth watch of the night Jesus went out to them, walking on the lake. When the disciples saw him walking on the lake, they were terrified. "It's a ghost." they said, and cried out in fear.
But Jesus immediately said to them, "Take courage! It is I. Don't be afraid."
Lord, if it's you," Peter replied, "tell me to come to you on the water."
"Come," he said.
Then Peter got down out of the boat, walked on the water and came toward Jesus.
