11-23-2016 Reasons For Doubt
In the fourth watch of the night, Jesus walked across the water to His disciples in the boat. Peter said, “Lord, if it is You, command me to come to You on the water.” Jesus said, “Come,” and Peter walked on the water to go to Jesus. However, he became aware of the boisterous wind, and began to sink, he cried, “Lord, save me!” “And immediately Jesus stretched out His hand and caught him, and said to him, ‘O you of little faith, why did you doubt?’” (Matthew 14:23-31 NKJV). Do you doubt because: 1) Jesus cannot save? 2) The Bible is not clearly God’s Word? 3) Scoffers have ridiculed this passage? 4) You haven’t taken the time to search these Scriptures thoroughly? This passage disproves all these “reasons” for doubt! Sinners aren’t asked to walk on water, but be baptized in water (Mark 16:16 NKJV)!
