Walking, wavering, worshipping

I’m still on Matthew’s gospel story of Jesus and Peter on the water. My three sermon point are Walking, Wavering and Worshipping and focus on Peter.
Our TV programmes regularly have experts on as talking heads, telling us how things ought to be and how easy it is to solve the great problems of life if we will only listen to them.
Peter, to his eternal credit, didn’t sit in the boat telling people how easy walking on the water would be. He got out, risked his dignity and did it. Don’t forget that, while he sank, he had first begun to walk on the water: to do the impossible.
Do you believe that you can do the impossible? Peter proved that, as long as Jesus is present and calling us to do it, then as the current TV ad for sportswear says: Impossible is Nothing.
