HEY HE GOT OUT OF THE BOAT

Matt:14: 22 And straightway Jesus constrained his disciples to get into a ship, and to go before him unto the other side, while he sent the multitudes away.

23 And when he had sent the multitudes away, he went up into a mountain apart to pray: and when the evening was come, he was there alone.

24 But the ship was now in the midst of the sea, tossed with waves: for the wind was contrary.

25 And in the fourth watch of the night Jesus went unto them, walking on the sea.

26 And when the disciples saw him walking on the sea, they were troubled, saying, It is a spirit; and they cried out for fear.

27 But straightway Jesus spake unto them, saying, Be of good cheer; it is I; be not afraid.

28 And Peter answered him and said, Lord, if it be thou, bid me come unto thee on the water.

29 And he said, Come. And when Peter was come down out of the ship, he walked on the water, to go to Jesus.

30 But when he saw the wind boisterous, he was afraid; and beginning to sink, he cried, saying, Lord, save me.

31 And immediately Jesus stretched forth his hand, and caught him, and said unto him, O thou of little faith, wherefore didst thou doubt?

32 And when they were come into the ship, the wind ceased.

33 Then they that were in the ship came and worshipped him, saying, Of a truth thou art the Son of God.

We talk about Peter and how he didn’t have so great a faith remember he got out of the boat , would we?

A. A bold request ---- V. 28 And Peter answered him and said, Lord, if it be thou, bid me come unto thee on the water.

1. A great petition, but not for Christ

2. He answers our request if only we ask.

Matt: 7: 7 Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you:

Luke 11:9 And I say unto you, Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you.

10 For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.

B. A gracious invitation -- V.29 And he said, Come. And when Peter was come down out of the ship, he walked on the water, to go to Jesus.

1. Jesus open the door for Peter to exercise his faith.

2. Others have had this same invitation Noah, Abraham .

3. Many of us have had it too but did not move.

C. A successful venture --- V.29 And he said, Come. And when Peter was come down out of the ship, he walked on the water, to go to Jesus.

1. There must be a going out if there is going to be a going on.

2. Peter got out of the boat.

3. His faith was great just step in the water.

D. A momentary failure.---V.30 But when he saw the wind boisterous, he was afraid; and beginning to sink, he cried, saying, Lord, save me.

A. Fear

B. Peter was unsure -- V. 27 But straightway Jesus spake unto them, saying, Be of good cheer; it is I; be not afraid.

C. Took his eyes off Christ.

D. When we do this we start to fall.

D. Peter started to PRAY-- V: 30 But when he saw the wind boisterous, he was afraid; and beginning to sink, he cried, saying, Lord, save me.
