Water Walkers!

01/20/2010

Matthew 14 Part Two

VS 24-36


 

    Jesus has settled matters between He and His Father. It is now time to attend to the business of the Kingdom of God of which He is THE Ambassador. Jesus sees them struggling in the storm on the water, having gone out ahead of him. Jesus walks on water… the men say "Surely He is the Son of God." Yes the MEN say that… and He IS! However… is THAT the reason He can walk on water? No! For starters: If that were true He would be the only one on record. But He isn't… There were two men on the water that night… Granted Jesus did it better… but He IS the Son of God… the ONLY perfect man… Of course He did it better.


 

    So Jesus says: Yeah peter… Come on out. Peter gets out and walks on water. It doesn't say whether it was one foot, ten, 100 feet. The Fact is Peter ALSO walked on water, so something else is going on here besides Jesus being the Son of God.

    Interesting Points to Observe:

  • Peter walked on water
  • Peter BEGAN to sink.
    • Have you ever began to sink? Ever stepped out onto the water and said… oh my… looks like I'm sinking.
      • NO! You couldn't get "oh my" out before you were under. You don't BEGIN to sink, you SINK and HARD!
    • The fact that Peter BEGAN to sink required a miracle!
  • Jesus gets Peter, pulls him back up, they walk together back to the boat.
    • Jesus Replies: " Peter, it's ok, you know I AM the Son of God, you didn't have a chance there. You're not at my level yet there buddy."?
    • NOPE!
    • Jesus Replies: "What's up? Where's your faith? Why are you doubting?
    • YEP! Jesus FULLY expects His people to operate like He does. Anything less is not acceptable. Forgiven by mercy and covered by grace… but not acceptable.
  • Jesus walks in such a great anointing, ONE DAY after the bad news that people, (MORE THAN ONE) are healed by the mere touching of his garment! Why… what caused the anointing on Jesus to operate at that level?

Jesus Spent Time in PRAYER!


 

I make a commitment, here and now.

  • I will spend time, even just five or ten minutes, every day in undistracted prayer!
  • Separate from my time in the Word! Pray through, and get direction.
  • Don't stop if something is bothering you, until you get the matter settled inside of you.
    • Nothing outside may have changed.
    • No money came in, no answer from the doctors reversing their report.
    • But inside, you received it and there is a knowing that ALL IS WELL!
    • Then you walk out, the interpretation of that prayer!

The W Story Structure - 4 Sequence Story Structure

Out of everything I've ever read on story structure for fiction writing, the W-Story Structure makes the most sense to me. If you'd rather view these as Acts (3-Act or 4-Act) you can overlay that on this W and it still works.



Glen C. Strathy writes (in much more detail here) in his article, The W-Plot vs. The Dramatica Model of Story Structure. There are four sequences for most stories. Each of the four legs of the W is comprised of a sequence of events that lead the story along to it's natural conclusion.

Sequence 1: setting up the problem (creating tension)Sequence 2: recovering from the problem (new ideas, positive momentum)Sequence 3: deepening of the problemSequence 4: the resolution of the problem (new light or understanding)

Sequence 1: setting up the problem (creating tension)
The Inciting Event (the event that is at the heart of the reason this story happened) may have occurred before your story begins, and often does. In King Arthur: Legend of the Sword (2017), th…

Introduction In the beginning, the Word already existed. The Word was with God, and the Word was God. (Immerse, 2017) John, page 399 
Notice that John begins his gospel by calling Jesus, The Word. We find Words, and the stories they create for us, impact us at a level that is beyond our cognitive ability to understand in the moment. Being caught up in a story can make you lose all sense of present, and be transported to another time and place (and sometimes another world entirely).

Ever since Aristotle observed that stories had a beginning, a middle, and an end, the science of story has been developed and studied. Our modern sensibilities tell us at a gut level whether a story “works” or i…

Reflection Paper: Mere Christianity by C.S. Lewis

Reflections of Mere Christianity
This is a reflection paper of the text Mere Christianity (Lewis, 1952, 1980). The content was first delivered as radio broadcast material between 1942-1944 by Clive Staples “CS” Lewis. Lewis then gathered the materials and published them as three sperate works, later combining and editing the text that became Mere Christianity. With the mind of a scholar and the mouth of a layman, Lewis takes us through the various topics that affect our lives as Christians and provides practical break-downs of how we are to treat each topic, supplemented by a host of modern parallels and parables. He is careful not to take any position that is not laid solidly in the Word of God, leaving those positions that are controversial within the Church either without an opinion or a well-deserved analysis of each side. However, far from a dry treatment of theology, Lewis gives us a laugh through each turn as he cuts through the heady stuff for the “why behind” each discussion…
