John6:18 “A strong wind was blowing and the waters grew rough. *(6:19)* When they had rowed three or three and a half miles, they saw Jesus approaching the boat, walking on the water; and they were terrified. *(6:20)* But he said to them, “It is I; don’t be afraid.” *(6:21)* Then they were willing to take him into the boat, and *immediately the boat reached the shore* where they were heading.”
Disciples after a long day were tired. Jesus had gone into the mountain to pray and they couldn’t wait. They couldn’t wait for Him. It was getting dark. They were in a hurry. They needed to get home and rest. They left Jesus! I said, they left Jesus. We too sometimes are in a hurry and leave Jesus.
Alone without Jesus and in the dark. The sea grew rough. Rowing made no progress, achieving only three miles after too much effort. We too sometimes row too much achieving nothing. We row in school, we row at work and businesses, we row in relationships, but no progress at all.
They couldn’t row back or forward. They were stuck. Their goal of getting home early were dashed, and now they faced possibility of death by drowning. Then Jesus appeared! I pray that in whatever crisis or situation we meet today, may Jesus appear in our lives! Amen? Amen.
When Jesus appeared, they were terrified to see Him walk on water. They were reluctant to take Him on board. Jesus encouraged them not to fear.
Then they were willing to take Him on board. Immediately they were willing to take Jesus…Immediately they reached the shore where they had struggled the whole night to reach. The impact of Jesus in life is immediately.
For immediate results today and any day add Jesus into your boat. For Immediate Results at work, in business, in parenting, in marriage, in anything we do…take Jesus!
As our various boats struggle to sail in darkness and rough seas towards good health, happiness, success, peace of mind and other achievements… may the addition of Jesus bring us immediate results.
May today be the day of adding Jesus in our boats. May today be the day of immediate results in Jesus name. Amen!
