Peter: Just Look At Me!

Tuesday 24 July 2018, 12:01am

It had been a very busy day for Jesus. He needed to be quiet so he went to pray. His friends set off across the lake in their little fishing boat.

As they reached the middle of the lake, the wind started to howl around the boat. The little boat rocked on the water. The wind blew stronger than before and Jesus’ friends were a little bit scared. They tried to row the boat, but the wind was far too strong.

Suddenly they saw something. A man was walking on the water! Now they were very scared!
“Don’t be afraid,” said the man. It was Jesus!

Peter called out “Jesus if that is you, tell me to come to you on the water.”

“Come,” Jesus said.

Then Peter climbed out of the boat and started to walk on the water towards Jesus.

When he looked around and saw the waves, he became scared and started to sink. “Jesus, save me!” Peter called.

Jesus took Peter’s hand and took him to the boat.

“Why did you doubt me Peter?” Jesus asked.

They climbed into the boat and the wind died down. Everyone on the boat was amazed.
