Walking on Water

Most of us, if not all of us have heard the story preached many a time about Peter walking on the sea of Galilee, but what about the story of his denial? Peter who walked and talked with the Lord Jesus, fell into the sin of fear, doubt, denial and even cursed and swore. I just want to bring out the point that we can walk on water spiritually speaking if we simply put our faith and trust in the miracle worker Jesus.
In Matthew chapter twenty six, you see that Jesus went to pray afar off and verse thirty seven says that He took with Him Peter and James and John. As Jesus was praying, they got tired and began to fall asleep. They were just as human as we are, kind of like the way it seems hard to stay awake in church sometimes. It takes determination sometimes not to give into this old body of flesh when it is so tired you can’t seem to keep your eyes open.

Troubles and Trials

Romans 8:28, “And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.” You are trying hard to serve God. You are doing your best to search out His will for you. You are obeying His voice to the upmost of your ability. So why are things going wrong? Why are the troubles piling up upon you? Why can’t you succeed in what you are trying to do for God? Why isn’t your best enough? Is this a familiar situation? We all know the story of Job and how he loved God, did what was right and yet suffered great trials. Job lost his family, his wealth, and his health.

Get on board!

The train to glory is leaving. Oh, heed the Porter’s voice. Get on board today! Make Jesus your choice. He’ll take all of your baggage, of sin and strife. It’s only through His blood, for you He gave His life.
Get on board, Hallelujah! Get on board, Amen! Jesus is pleading for your soul. Get on board, Hallelujah! Get on board, Amen! Oh, heed the Porter’s call; it’s time to get on board.
It’s a one way trip to Heaven, so don’t wait to late. This train will take you up to the pearly gate. If you want the Lord to save you, and wash your sins away, Then respond to the Porter, when you hear him say.
Get on board, Hallelujah! Get on board, Amen! Jesus is pleading for your soul. Get on board, Hallelujah! Get on board, Amen! Oh, heed the Porter’s call; it’s time to get on board.

My husband wrote this a few weeks ago after spending time playing with our 3 year old and his train set. Lots of times we've heard the comparison of the Christian life as a train. We as human beings are on a journey heading either to…
