After preaching Sunday on Jesus walking on the water-Matt. 14:22-33- it's interesting to see that the disciples, except for Peter, thought Jesus was a ghost or phantom. But when He got in the boat with them, the storm calmed down and they began to worship Him. It was when they discovered the real Jesus that they worshipped him.
The storms swirling around us are very real, the characters are real, the circumstance is real. But in those storms, is Jesus real to us or is He just a phantom? Can we truly and fully worship Him if He is not real to us? If He calls us out of the boat, do we have the faith to 'walk on water' or will we remain with the crowd where we think it is safe? To be real worshipper, discover the real Jesus.
