Jesus walks on the water and the disciples are afraid. WHY?
- When Jesus walked on the water to join the disciples in their boat, the Gospel mentioned that they were afraid - twice. When He approached, they thought they saw a spirit and were afraid, and of course, Peter became afraid when he saw the waves and felt the wind, when he was attempting to walk on the waves to Jesus. They *should not* have been afraid! The Lord had just performed a stupendous miracle, and they should have known that He would always protect them. Why were they afraid? It was for the same reasons that we are afraid, or suffer from the common modern version of fear - anxiety.
