We all know the story of Peter's epiphany moment that took place on the water but if you need a little reminding I’ll recite Matthew 14:25-31 for you. A little while before morning, Jesus came walking on the water towards His disciples. When they saw Him, they thought He was a ghost and became terrified which prompted them to scream. At once, Jesus said to them, “Don’t be afraid for I am Jesus.” Peter replied, “Lord, if it is really you, then tell me to come to you on the water.” “Come”, Jesus said. Peter then got out of the boat and started walking on the water toward Him but when Peter saw how strong the wind was, he was frightened and started to sink. “Save me, O Lord” is what he began to shout out. Right away, Jesus reached out His hand. He helped Peter up and said to him, “YOU SURELY DON’T HAVE MUCH FAITH”.
Since we've just had a refresher on the apostle Peter, let me ask you a question. How much faith do you think Jesus wanted Peter to have before he even thought about getting out of that boat? Was it the size of a salt grain, mustard seed, lobster, tree or a mountain? Well according to the good book Jesus required that Peter only have faith the size of a mustard seed, which is only about 1 or 2 mm in diameter.
If Peter’s depth of faith was to be that of a mustard seed, then what should ours reflect? Simple! Ours should definitely be bigger than a grain of salt and growing EVERYDAY to achieve heights of mountains and or greater regardless of how frail we might be. So tell me what does the measurement of your faith resemble.
But if you have faith the SIZE of a mustard seed-Matthew 17:20
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
