“Then those who were in the boat worshiped him
saying, ‘Truly you are the Son of God.’”
Matt 14:33 (NIV)
Our heavenly Father desires that we, His children, have a reverential awe for Him. We are to uphold Him and things of His and treat them as special.
The disciples watched as
Jesus rescued Peter
from the water. He had impulsively challenged Jesus
to prove that it was indeed Him who came to them, walking on the water.
Some sources believe that
Peter reacted in faith. But we know that Peter took his eyes off of Christ
and started to sink. Peter cried out
to Jesus and He responded.
I believe this is why the disciples fell down and worshiped the Master. When they spoke words of affirmation about who
Christ is they said them out of a sense of awe and
Dear Lord: We come before you because we love you. We appreciate all the blessings you have bestowed upon us. All that you do for us each day causes us to humbly fall at your feet and honor You. We honor You with our work, our leisure activities, our talents, and our treasures. We will give You the praise You are due. In the name of
Jesus, we pray. AMEN
