6-11-17 | Matthew 14:22-36 • June 11, 2017 • Pastor Kevin Day
Matthew 14:22-36 A Voyage of Faith Mark 6:48 Then HE SAW THEM straining at rowing, for the wind was against them. Now about the fourth watch of the night, He came to them, walking on the sea, and would have passed them by. Mark 6:51-52 Then He went up into the boat to them, and the wind ceased. And they were greatly amazed in themselves beyond measure, and marveled. For they had not understood about the loaves, because their heart was hardened. John 6:21 Then they willingly received him into the boat, and immediately the boat was at the land where they were going. “Approach life like A VOYAGE on a schooner. Enjoy the view. Explore the vessel. Make friends with the captain. Fish a little. And then off when you get home.” – Max Lucado The REAL VOYAGE of discovery consists NOT in seeking new landscapes, BUT IN HAVING NEW EYES. - Marcel Proust JESUS SENT THEM. (v22-23) JESUS SAW THEM. (v24-25) JESUS SHOWED UP. (v26-33)
