Key Verses to Guide Us:

Proverbs 4:25-27 (NIV): "Let your eyes look straight ahead; fix your gaze directly before you. Give careful thought to the paths for your feet and be steadfast in all your ways."

Hebrews 12:2 (NIV): "Fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God."

Matthew 14:29-31 (NIV): "‘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?’"

Summarized Message:

In this sermon, Pastor Matt explores the indispensable role of focus in achieving spiritual breakthroughs. Drawing from Scripture, he emphasizes that maintaining a steadfast gaze upon Jesus is essential for overcoming life's tumultuous storms. Through the narrative of Peter walking on water, we are reminded that our focus directly influences our faith's strength and our life's direction.

Key Insights from the Sermon:

- Guarding Your Focus: Just as a camera lens must be focused to capture a clear image, our spiritual focus must be finely tuned to see God’s work in our lives clearly.

- Dangers of Losing Focus: Pastor Matt highlights how easily distractions can derail us, using Peter's moment of fear on the water as a powerful illustration of the consequences of shifting our gaze away from Jesus.

- The Command to "Come": Jesus' invitation to Peter to walk on water serves as a divine call for us to step out in faith, focusing solely on His word despite the visible challenges.

Are we looking at the waves around us, or are we fixed on Jesus, who calms every storm and guides us to safety?
