Fearful Following

Last Sunday we had a great story about Elijah hiding in a cave and God shows up in the sheer silence. We also had the story of Peter walking on water with Jesus. My conclusion from these two stories is not so much that when we follow Jesus the fear goes away, rather it remains (if not gets ratcheted up) but we do have the promise that Jesus is with us. Know that whether you are cowering in the boat, bold like Peter walking on the water, or find yourself feeling like you're outside of the boat sinking for fear of the winds battering around you, Jesus is with you... Here is how I said it on Sunday in my sermon.
