I asked Jesus many questions which He patiently answered. I saw Him do many miracles of healing. I was present at the raising from the dead of Jarius’ daughter and also Lazarus. I witnessed the transfiguration. When Jesus came walking to us walking on the water, I jumped out of the boat, making big splash. With my personality, I liked to make a big splash. However, when I took my eyes off Jesus, I began to sink. When I called out to Him, He reached out and took my hand and saved me.
When Jesus asked, “Who do you say that I am?” I said, “You are the Messiah, the Son of the Living God.” This is one time I was glad to be able to answer without hesitation. Jesus told John and me to go prepare the Passover meal. At this last Supper I said I didn’t feel right about Jesus washing my feet. When He told me that otherwise I would have no part in Him I asked Him to bath me all over. (Make a big splash.) He told me that was not necessary. This experience was a significant splash.
In the Garden of Gethsemane I was unable to stay awake. When the soldiers came with Judas who betrayed Jesus, I impulsively cut off a soldier’s ear. Jesus told me to put the sword away. He then healed the soldier’s ear.
The thing that I regret the most is that I denied Him three times when He was being tried. After His resurrection when He appeared to us on the seashore, He asked me three times if I loved Him. Of course, I replied that I did. He told me to feed His sheep. At Pentecost, I preached a sermon that caused 3,000 people to repent and be baptized. I give all the credit for this big splash to the Holy Spirit. Continuing on in the power of the Holy Spirit, I preached the Good News until my crucifixion. I asked to be placed head down on the cross feeling unworthy to be placed the same as my Savior.
