GET OUT OF THE BOAT

Matthew 14:22-36

I. PETER WAS A FISHERMAN AND JESUS MADE HIM A FISHER OF MEN!

A. AT LEAST PETER TOOK A STEP OF FAITH, THE REST OF THEM WERE JUST BOAT PEOPLE!

1. BOAT PEOPLE JUST SIT

2. BOAT PEOPLE JUST WATCH

3. BOAT PEOPLE JUST WAIT

4. BOAT PEOPLE JUST WONDER

Peter step out closer to the Lord, even when he was sinking, he was closer to Jesus than the rest of them. You never sink too far in sin in which Jesus cannot lift you up! Amen.

II. HE STEPPED OUT WITH JESUS (MATTHEW 14:28-29)

(JOHN 6:47)

HE DID WALK ON THE WATER. THINK ABOUT HOW GLORIOUS IT WAS TO WALK OUT TO THE LORD.

A. HE STEPPED OUT ON FAITH.

1. SOME WILL NEVER STEP OUT, SOME WILL NEVER STEP UP!

2. WE DO NOT LACK MONEY, BUT MORALS.

3. WE DO NOT LACK CLOTHES, BUT COURAGE. (2 CORINTHIANS 5:7)

B. HE STEPPED OUT IN FULLNESS.

1. HE WAS FULL OF GOD, GRACE, AND GOING.

2. "THE UNCTION." (EPHESIANS 3:19)

3. HE WAS FULL AND DID NOT HAVE AN EMPTY FEELING UNTIL MR. DEVIL BROUGHT A STORM INTO HIS LIFE. DOES THIS SOUND FIMILIAR?

C. HE STEPPED OUT WITH A FUTURE.

(JOHN 10:9)

1. WHEN YOU TAKE A STEP OF FAITH WITH JESUS, YOU CAN HAVE A FUTURE!

2. HEAVEN OR HELL- WHERE WILL YOU SPEND ETERNITY?

D. HE STEPPED OUT WITH JOY.

E. HE STEPPED OUT WITH FRIENDSHIP.

1. WHAT A FRIEND WE HAVE IN JESUS!!! HE NEVER LEAVES US, NEVER STOPS LOVING US!

F. HE STEPPED OUT WITH A FAMILY.

1. PART OF THE FAMILY OF GOD, YOU DO NOT JOIN A FAMILY, YOU ARE BORN INTO A FAMILY.

G. HE STEPPED IN THE FOUNTAIN OF LIFE.

1. HE WOULD NEVER THIRST. ONCE YOU GET A GOOD TASTE OF THE LIVING WATER.

H. HE STEPPED OUT WITH JUSTIFICATION. (MATTHEW 14:30-33)

1. A STEP OF FORGIVENESS.

EVEN WHEN HIS FAITH FAILED, JESUS STILL PULLED HIM UP.

2. A STEP OF FAVOUR.

JESUS BROUGHT HIM INTO THE BOAT. THE SHEPHERD ALWAYS LOOKS AFTER HIS SHEEP. WHEN WE STRAY, HE IS THERE TO HELP.

3. A STEP OF FELLOWSHIP.

HE DID NOT LET HIM DROWN. HE NOW WAS SAFE IN THE MASTER'S HAND. JUST LIKE EVERY SAINT OF GOD WHO HAS PUT THEIR TRUST IN JESUS.
