The disciples were in trouble. A strong wind had been blowing hard across the Sea of Galilee where the disciples, straining at the oars for three or four miles, were attempting to reach the shore. Jesus was not with them, but had gone up a mountain top escape the crowds who wanted to make him king. As he looked down over white-capped the lake, perhaps he saw in a flash of lightening, the difficulty the disciples faced. The Lord would not leave them to struggle in the storm. He would come to them. When the disciples saw a figure approaching on the water, we can well imagine their terror. A figure appearing in a place that defies logic. But Jesus assures them, “It is I; do not be afraid.” Immediately the boat reaches land and safety.
