Getting Out of the Boat

The title of the fourth panel is “Getting out
of the Boat.” Notice how the seed of
faith in the second panel has grown and
matured. Mature faith hears Christ
calling us in life to come to him.

This panel reminds us of the story in which
Jesus calls Peter to get out of the boat
and walk toward him in the midst of a
raging storm. As long as Peter kept his
eyes on Jesus he discovered the power to
do what he thought was impossible.
There are times in our life when Jesus asks
us to do what we might consider to be
impossible – to walk on the water in the
midst of a storm. Mature faith understands
that when Jesus calls us to come to him
and when we keep our eyes on him he
will give us the power that we need.
