Peter Walks On Water --- Matthew 14:22-33

For week two, we head to Matthew 14:22-33. Peter and the rest of the disciples were out on the Sea of Galilee when they noticed a figure walking on the water’s surface. When they finally realize that the figure is Jesus, Peter called out and asked Jesus to invite Him onto the water.
Jesus did, and Peter took a stroll on top of the waves. However, only when Peter focused on Jesus is he able to stay afloat.

Our Bottom Line This Week Is: ... Stay Focused On Jesus.
When we put our confidence in Jesus, we find the courage to make the wise choice in a difficult situation. Jesus may not be asking us to walk on water, but He does ask us to trust Him. We hope kids start to understand some practical ways to focus on Jesus and what He wants for their lives.

Our Memory Verse This Month Is: ... "Being Confident Of This, That He Who Began A Good Work In You Will Carry It On To Completion Until The Day Of Christ Jesus."  Philippians 1:6 , NIV

Remember that Confidence is: Learning To See Yourself The Way God Sees You.
When it comes to confidence, we might try and base it on what we do well or what a teacher or parent might say about us. But true confidence should be built on something that lasts forever. We think that’s found in understanding how God sees us. God created us, and God loves us. Nowhere is this more evident than in the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus. And, when you put your confidence in Jesus, you can truly see yourself how God sees you.
