“Come,” Jesus said. Then Peter got down out of the boat.
Peter should have been terrified to step out onto the waves, but he was faithful to follow. The disciple had to focus to hear the voice of Christ despite the storm. He filtered what he heard by halting on the boat to ensure the call was from Jesus. “Lord, if it’s you…tell me to come to you” (Matt. 14:28). Once Peter was certain, he made it happen by getting off the boat! It would have taken a great deal of fortitude to follow Jesus onto the water.
Are you listening for the call to follow?
