Water Walking

This Sunday, we will continue our “Marvelous Faith” series by looking at Peter: fisherman, impulsive disciple, vocal denier, powerful gospel preacher and writer. Much like the other heroes of the faith we have studied together thus far, Peter had flaws. Meaning, he was just like us! Thankfully, his life wasn't derailed by epic failure. Instead, he grew in faith and became a powerful witness of the good news of the gospel of Jesus. Let’s join with Peter in taking a step of faith and growing beyond our failures too!

Take the story of Adam & Eve found in the book of Genesis. In the garden of Eden (aka the good 'ol days of perfection), God told this first couple that the growling of their stomachs could be silenced by the fruit from any tree in the entire garden except the tree of the knowledge of good & evil (Genesis 2). Along comes the enemy (snake that he is) and causes them to doubt what God really told them. Off to the tree of the knowledge of good & evil they go, pluck off an apple and..."Crunch!". A very, very familiar story to many of us because we've heard it and read it so many times. For years. But wait. Was it an apple that they ate on that fateful day? Take a look at Genesis 3 and give it another read. Sometimes it's good to hear stories again. Even those we've heard thousands of times before. We might just see or hear something we have never noticed before. We might just have our faith stirred up in a new way by an old story. Welcome to our new sermon series, Marvelous Faith.
