"...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!
