“How is the indwelling Spirit not relational?” – David Crabtree

The Way of Jesus, Grace, and The Way of Love

David takes time to share on 3 major themes.

  • 1. The Way of Jesus (the Holy Spirit)
  • 2. The Way of Grace
  • 3. The Way of Love

All these three emphasizes need to be in place to have a healthy and growing church community. How ready are we to step out of the boat and in faith “walk on water?”

When the disciples saw him walking on the lake, they were terrified. ‘It’s a ghost,’ they said, and cried out in fear. 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. But when he saw the wind, he was afraid and, beginning to sink, cried out, ‘Lord, save me!’
Immediately Jesus reached out his hand and caught him. ‘You of little faith,’ he said, ‘why did you doubt?’

Matthew 14:26-31
