“Jesus Walks on the Water,” Friend, Oct. 2009, 36
After feeding 5,000 people with fish and bread, Jesus went to a mountain to pray. His disciples got on a boat to cross the Sea of Galilee. That night, Jesus came to join His disciples. He walked on the water to get to the boat. His disciples saw Jesus walking on the water. They were afraid. Jesus told them not to be afraid. Peter wanted to walk on the water too. Jesus told Peter to come to Him. Peter climbed out of the boat and began to walk on the water toward Jesus. Because the wind was blowing hard, Peter became afraid. He began to sink in the water and asked Jesus to save him. Jesus took Peter’s hand and lifted him up. Jesus asked Peter why he didn’t have more faith. Jesus and Peter walked on the water back to the boat and the storm stopped.
