The Pastor’s Summer Bible Study – 2016
If You Want to Walk on Water, You’ve Got to Get Out of the Boat
Mondays at 6:30 pm
This is a six-week study based on the best-selling book by John Ortberg. Here are the notes from the book’s cover:
You’re one step away from the adventure of your life.
“Lord, if it’s you, tell me to come to you on the water.” – Simon Peter
Peter may have been the first one out of the boat, but Jesus’ invitation to walk on water is for you as well. But walk on water? What does that mean?
Walking on water means:
- Facing your fears and choosing not to let fear have the last word
- Discovering and embracing the unique calling of God on your life
- Experiencing the power of God to accomplish what you would not be capable of doing on your own
If You Want to Walk on Water, You’ve Got to Get Out of the Boat helps you answer Christ’s call to greater faith, power-filled deeds, and a new way of knowing him. Through six sessions that include video clips and group discussions, you will discover how to discern God’s call, transcend fear, risk faith, manage failure, and trust God. Relating the story in Matthew 14 to life today, teacher and best-selling author John Ortberg invites you to consider the incredible potential that awaits you outside your comfort zone.
