To Boldly Go

Passage: Joshua 3:7-17 , Matthew 14:22-33

Who doesn’t want to enter the Promised Land? Who wouldn’t want to follow Jesus if He asked? There’s just something about “boldly going where others fear to trod” that excites us. But also makes us hesitate. For Israel, it meant crossing the Jordan River at flood stage (and later, besieging the fortress city of Jericho). For Peter, it meant leaving the boat to walk on water. For us, who knows when we will be called on to step out in faith? God knows…and He’s calling.
