If its really you.. command me to walk on water

Matthew 14 amplified version
26And when the disciples saw Him walking on the sea, they were terrified and said, It is a ghost! And they screamed out with fright.
27But instantly He spoke to them, saying, Take courage! I AM! Stop being afraid!
28And Peter answered Him, Lord, if it is You, command me to come to You on the water.
29He said, Come! So Peter got out of the boat and walked on the water, and he came toward Jesus.


This passage is kinda funny, the disciples were afraid because they thought they saw a GHOST! I can truly relate :) I personally am afraid of the thought of vampires..
Jesus reassures them that its HIM.. God not a GHOST (hihi)Peter reacted in my opinion on the basis of relationship.. "if its you command me" wow! talk about facing your fears.. its like saying if your not a ghost i want to see u face to face ..

Peter did not change the world, preached and asked for forgiveness.. or did anything religous.. He just wanted to know and be with Jesus in the state of being "afraid." Anyways this verse just jumped at me, and I do want to know Jesus in a deeper way and meet HIM where He's at.. I would love Him to command me which is very reassuring.. is a deeper "knowing" than "believing" we cannot believe who we do not know.. however when Peter did walk on water, he became distracted with the waves, he began to sink.. Jesus said "why did you doubt, oh u little of faith"

Luis L. Pantoja Jr. THD

I went to a memorial service for Pasto Luis Pantoja a commemorative Prayer meeting hosted by GCF-Peel. It was a touching event for I only met Pastor Luis once here in Canada during a church picnic last month. Its a pity I did not get to talk to him.

In the prayer meeting I heard so many funny, meaningful stories about this great man. A man greatly loved and for he loved much.

Epitaph for his cremated remains: "A handful of ashes now vaulted in this corner, with nothing to boast but grace from his maker"

I happen to read his Limericks..

Limericks on my life

Limericks are short verses generally but not always funny. Here are some about my career

Once on fire, in a suit and tie
By the hand of God and the will of man

Now he's fired, in sackcloth retired
By the hand of man and the will of God

The Lord has given, He has taken away
I tread the path, He leads the way

Flip the new page, blank with no stain
God in my old ag…
