A Test that Reveals
As we examine Christ walking on the water, we realize he is testing his disciples. Not in a malicious way - but in a way to uncover parts of their faith that need refining. Ultimately, this test is used to show that Jesus is not only the Christ but God incarnate.
Do you try to tackle your problems alone or with Christ by your side?
Where do you trust God amidst your problems? Where do you fail to trust him?
Do you understand who Jesus had revealed himself to be, or do you have a hard heart that the Lord is calling you to repent of?
