Matthew 14:22-33 I love the story in Matthew’s account of Jesus walking on the water for its instructional nature on the matter of faith. In this story we see a group of scared disciples, battered on the sea and unable to escape the harsh winds and violent waves. When Jesus appears to them, walking on the water, they are not comforted by His presence. They are even more scared, because they’re not seeing Him through spiritual eyes. They think they see a ghost because they aren’t discerning the spiritual from the natural.
