As we start our new series, “At The Movies” we take a look at the movie Moana as Pastor Neli reads from the Book of Matthew and makes a comparison to when Jesus had walked on water and invited Peter to come out to him. Jesus is calling us to live beyond the reef. God is calling us to go beyond ourselves, our fears, and our limitations to serve others and to glorify Him. What is limiting you from stepping out for everything God has for you?
But Jesus immediately said to them: “Take courage! It is I. Don’t be afraid.”
“Lord, if it’s you,” Peter replied, “tell me to come to you on the water.”
“Come,” he said.
Then Peter got down out of the boat, walked on the water and came toward Jesus.
– Matthew 14:27-29 (NIV)
