The 10th Sunday after Pentecost

ScripturesExodus 14:5-16, 21-31Psalm 107:1-3, 23-32Matthew 14:22-33


Rev. Mark McKim

fbcsermon_JesusWalkWaterThe gospel reading appointed for this Sunday is famous. It’s the account of Jesus walking on water, specifically the Lake of Galilee, a place notorious for sudden storms. Perhaps even more significant is that Jesus commands an end to the storm. Power over the seas had long been understood as a divine prerogative.

The problem with this text is the “so what” question.

So Jesus walked on water and stilled a storm. So what? What has that got to do with us, here in Regina this week? It’s not as if any of us expect to start strolling across Last Mountain Lake. The real issue is what this extraordinary story says to us, followers of Jesus, today….and that’s what this Sunday’s sermon will be all about.
