IMPERFECT #1
Sinking in Fear
Matthew 14:22-33 / February 3, 2019

Faith is formed in the graces of failing forward

4 ways faith is formed in Mt 14.22-33:

Faith is formed when we Accept Faith Assignments (14.22-27)
  • “Get-in-the-Boat” Faith (v22, Mt 5-14.21)
  • “500-Foot” Faith (v27)
Faith is formed when we Establish Stretch Goals (14.28-29)
  • “Out-of-the-Boat” Faith (v29)
  • “On-the-Water” Faith (v28-29)
Faith is formed when we Embrace Teachable Moments (14.30-31)
  • “Sinking-Fast” Faith (v30)
  • “Windblown-and-Wet” Faith (v31)
Faith is formed when He Confirms Right Answers (14.32-33, John 6.66-69)
  • “Face-to-the-Floor” Faith (v33, Mt 8.23-27)
  • “Nowhere-Else-to-Go” Faith (John 6.68)
Imperfections are where grace is experienced, faith is formed, and God is most glorified.
