Sunday February 28,2021 | Jesus Walked on Water

Jesus proved that He can be trusted. His miracles, teaching, death, and resurrection showed that He is who He says He is. Only Jesus can save us when we look to Him in faith.

This Week’s Lesson: Jesus Walked on Water

  • Bible Passage: Matthew 14Mark 6John 6
  • Story Point: Jesus showed He is God by walking on water.
  • Key Passage: Psalm 40:5
  • Big Picture Question: Why did Jesus perform miracles? Jesus performed miracles to glorify God, to show He is the Son of God, and to care for people.

Jesus had been teaching crowds of people by the Sea of Galilee. It was getting late, so He told His disciples to get into the boat and go to the other side of the sea. Jesus sent the crowds away and went up on the mountain to pray by Himself.

That evening, the boat was far from the shore. The wind blew, and the waves tossed the boat around. Jesus was still on the mountain alone.
Around three in the morning, Jesus came toward His disciples, walking on the sea. When the disciples saw Jesus, they were terrified. “It’s a ghost!” they cried.

Right away, Jesus spoke to them. “Have courage! It’s Me. Do not be afraid.”

Peter answered, “Lord, if it really is You, tell me to come to You on the water.”

So Jesus said, “Come!”

Peter got out of the boat and started walking on the water toward Jesus. But when Peter saw how strongly the wind was blowing, he was afraid. Peter began to sink.
“Lord, save me!” he cried.

Jesus reached out His hand and grabbed Peter. Jesus said, “You have little faith. Why did you doubt?”
They got into the boat and the wind stopped. Then everyone in the boat worshiped Jesus and said, “Truly You are the Son of God.”
