"...He came to them, walking on the sea" (Mark 6:48).
I'm all excited! I think I know why Jesus walked on the water. It's a new thought for me, and I'll share it with you.
The thought is that when Jesus comes, He does so miraculously. He came to His disciples, walking on the water. A miracle. He came to the world, conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary. A miracle. And He comes to us, the church, in the Word and the Sacrament. A miracle! Because when He comes, He comes miraculously.
But there's more. When we go to God, we go miraculously: prayer. For when we pray in Jesus' name, we touch the heart of God!
God comes to us, and we go to Him, miraculously. And that's a pretty good combination!
God bless you, dear Christians!
