Jesus Walks on Water John 6:16-21
Why did Jesus, the sovereign Lord, walk on the raging sea? As if the Miraculous Meal wasn’t enough, this week Pastor David shows how the disciples needed Jesus to teach the same lesson again, that He is complete control and even Lord over nature. Jesus walked to them on the water for the same reason He fed the 5000, so they could witness His power and understand who He is. Jesus is God.
When evening came, His disciples went down to the sea, 17 got into a boat, and started across the sea to Capernaum. It was now dark, and Jesus had not yet come to them. 18 The sea became rough because a strong wind was blowing. 19 When they had rowed about three or four miles, they saw Jesus walking on the sea and coming near the boat, and they were frightened. 20 But He said to them, “It is I; do not be afraid.” 21 Then they were glad to take Him into the boat, and immediately the boat was at the land to which they were going.
