If You Want To Walk On Water You Have To Get Out Of The Boat
You're one step away from the adventure of your life.
By John Ortberg
If you want to walk on water is one of my favorite books. John Ortberg details Peter's water walking experience in great detail and application to our lives. He tells us that we too can walk on water, but we have to get out of the boat and trust Jesus.
If you know that you aren't using the gifts and abilities that God has given you give this book a read. It can help you on the "adventure of your life".
John Ortberg writes in a very entertaining style intertwining biblical scripture, quotes from other authors and entertaining stories to help you get out of the boat.
Some of my favorite quotes are: "What am I not doing that I could not do apart from the power of God?"
"Fear has created more practicing heretics than bad theology ever has, for it makes us live as though we serve a limited, finite, partially present, semi-competent God."
"I believe there is something-Someone-inside us who tells us there is more to life than sitting in the boat. You were made for something more than merely avoiding failure. There is something inside you that wants to walk on the water-to leave the comfort of routine existence and abandon yourself to the high adventure of following God."
I recommend this book to everyone, we should all be tapping our God given talents by stepping out of the boat.
