Faith vs. peer pressure
I think having faith more often than not will make me look like a fool. I think when Peter started to sink that his buddies weren't saying - Dude that is totally rad, wait for me. I think they were saying Peter What are you doing? I know you think that that ghost is Jesus and it said come to me but due, get back in the boat. Peter, GET BACK IN THE BOAT. I think Peter became embarassed of his faith and it was shame that made him sink.
I recently had an experience with the rain where i really wanted to sit outside and enjoy my fire so I commanded it not to rain and it didn't, but than I had a friend come out and I stopped commanding it because I felt foolish. So it not only rained, but down poured. Amazingly enough the fire re-lit itself after the down pour.
"The Cross is foolishness to those who are perishing but to those who are being saved it is the power of God." I am not saying that my friend was perishing, but different levels of faith exhibit different levels of foolishness. David danced in his underwear before God and man and it's credited to him as faith. God speaks to me and I'm know I'm not schizophrenic.
Faith people, don't be ashamed.
I will not be ashamed.
