This week they finish up a chapter in the "Imitate Their Faith" book about Peter. They cover the account of Jesus walking on water. In the story Peter also walks on the water out to Jesus. Well Peter gets scared as he is walking on the water in the middle of a storm and Jesus has to save him - notice how it is described in the publication:
He cried out: “Lord, save me!” Jesus caught him by the hand and pulled him up. Then, while still on the water’s surface, he drove home this important lesson to Peter: “You with little faith, why did you give way to doubt?”— Matt. 14:30, 31
21 “Give way to doubt”—what an apt phrase! Doubt can be a powerful, destructive force. If we yield to it, it can eat away at our faith and cause us to sink spiritually. We need to fight back vigorously! How? By keeping the right focus. If we dwell on what scares us, what discourages us, what distracts us from Jehovah and his Son, we will find our doubts growing. If we focus on Jehovah and his Son, on what they have done, are doing, and will do for those who love them, we will keep corrosive doubts at bay.
So, Jesus wasn't just teaching Peter to trust in him. No. He was teaching people down to our day to never doubt the Faithful and Discreet Slave. HAHAHA........
The solution to doubt? Think about something else! Think about God and Jesus. Ignore those pesky doubts!
