My Lifeguard Walks On Water
The ‘My Lifeguard Walks On Water’ Christian T-Shirt by Kerusso draws its inspiration from the 1st book of the New Testament. Mathew 14:25-31 tells us:
25 Shortly before dawn, Jesus went out to them, walking on the lake. 26 When the disciples saw him walking on the lake, they were terrified. “It’s a ghost,” they said and cried out in fear.
27 But Jesus immediately said to them: “Take courage! It is I. Don’t be afraid.”
28 “Lord, if it’s you,” Peter replied, “tell me to come to you on the water.”
29 “Come,” he said.
Then Peter got down out of the boat, walked on the water and came toward Jesus. 30 But when he saw the wind, he was afraid and, beginning to sink, cried out, “Lord, save me!”
31 Immediately Jesus reached out his hand and caught him. “You of little faith,” he said, “why did you doubt?”
Faith Overcomes Fear
Over the last several weeks there have been tremendous storms, record rainfall and almost unheard of winds. Through it all there has been a loss of life and much tragedy. And yet there are so many joyful experiences and wonderous survival stories.
In the passage above Peter got out of the boat and walked on the water towards Jesus but when he realized what he was doing he began to sink. His faith gave way to fear. Immediately, Jesus reached down and saved him. There was no hesitation, no second thoughts, He just reached out and pulled Peter to safety.
Testify With Your T-Shirt
When it’s our turn to weather the storm it’s important to remember that the Lord is with us and is reaching out to save us. He is always ready to bring more God-Things into our lives. When we have those moments that our faith is challenged and our hearts are filled with fear, our prayers can bring us back to safety.
