Walk on Water and Do Not Sink

Most people who know anything about Jesus know that He walked on water.  What they sometimes forget is that there was always something to be learned from His miracles beyond just the fact that He had the power to do them.  Whatever wonder Jesus performed was a sign of some eternal truth; that’s why what are called “miracles” are also called “signs and wonders.”

That Jesus walked on water and did not sink illustrated that through Him we now walk in life without sinking into death.  Because there is no longer any Sheol (Hades below), we do not sink at death.  We only rise to heaven.  (If you don’t know the story of Sheol, see Everyone Is Going to Heaven )

This miracle of Jesus was also reminiscent of the Israelites walking across the Red Sea as if it were dry land.  Both experiences typify the magnificent deliverance God has given us into the world to come!

Don’t be like Peter who, though he had the courage to step out of the boat and walk on the water with Jesus, paid attention to his fears and lost his footing (Matthew 14:25-33).  On Christ the solid rock we stand.  There is no place to go but up!

The purpose of this blog is to praise Jesus Christ in biblical terms.
