The true life of Christianity is like a person walking on water. What does it mean? It means we are walking in different laws. Our habitat is on land, so when we are on water and walking, it is like we are entering into the law of water even though we are human.
That is why, when we walk on water, it means that we are walking in different laws and when we have lived in the Spirit, we “walk” as if we were walking on water. Once we become true Christians, we will live out different lives and laws. While people apply the laws that are in this world, we don’t use the laws that are in the world, but we use the laws of “spirit and life.” We use the law of faith, which is a law that is different from people in general, just like Jesus.
Jesus used different laws while He was on earth. He did not live under any laws that exist on earth. That is why if we pay attention, Jesus lived in a different way. When we see Jesus as a servant of God, He is a different servant of God, who lived His life differently. He is not like most other servants of God.
Notice, when Jesus was on earth, He did various ministries from village to village, from town to town, and He never asked for money or made proposals to raise funds. Why? Because He believes in the law of faith, which He has in the law of the spirit of life. He knew that He had a Father who was able to provide for all the needs of His ministry.
If we look at Jesus as the Son of Man, He is the Son of Man who does not worry about His needs. He was not afraid of lack, even though He said the Son of Man had no shelter, whereas the birds of the air have nests; but the Son of man has not where to lay His head. That is, He can lay His head anywhere. However, Jesus never lacked, even with the twelve of His disciples who did not have jobs. All His needs were met by miracles.
It is no coincidence that when we read the story of Jesus’ life and ministry, some of the stories are in the middle of lakes. When the Bible tells of Jesus and the disciples in the middle of lakes, they are usually very exciting. One of the events was Jesus walking on water and Peter walking on water. Amazing! If Jesus could walk on water and Peter could walk on water, we can walk on water too! There is a possibility we can walk on water.
Today, we must be able to eliminate all human thoughts that we have lived out so far so that we can all live supernaturally, no longer under natural laws. We are no longer limited by laws that govern us naturally. We live supernaturally! Our life will be different from others’ and we will experience things differently from other people.
We will experience many divine miracles because we live supernaturally. All of our needs will be supernaturally met! That’s why God will continue to teach us to be able to live and think supernaturally.
Let’s read in Matthew 14:22–33 where Jesus and Peter walked on water after Jesus had fed 5,000 people. John 6 records that after Jesus fed 5,000 people, they came back to Jesus. Jesus said, “Ye seek me, not because ye saw the miracles, but because ye did eat of the loaves, and were filled” (John 6:26). That is, they are looking for Jesus for food. Many people seek Jesus only for food. That is why Jesus said, “Labour not for the meat which perisheth, but for that meat which endureth unto everlasting life” (John 6:27).
Everyone will work hard for food. Many people seek Jesus also because they need food. Whereas Jesus himself was able to feed 5,000 people with only five loaves and two fishes and after that, there was an event when Jesus walked on the water. In Matthew 14:22, Jesus told his disciples to get into the boat and go ahead on the other side. Meanwhile, He sent the crowd home. It means Jesus is now alone because the disciples have left and the people have gone home. Why must He be alone? Verse 23 says that Jesus went up on a hill to pray alone. Often we also need to do what Jesus did. We send the crowd home so that we can pray privately with God.
From verse 24 it is told that the boat of His disciples was being tossed with waves. Then Jesus walked on water. However, His disciples were shocked and screamed in terror because they thought Jesus was a ghost. However, Jesus said “Be of good cheer; it is I; be not afraid!” It turned out, after seeing Jesus walk on water, Peter was immediately intrigued. Then he cried out and answered “Lord, if it be thou, bid me come unto thee on the water.” Then Jesus said “Come!” However, when he saw the wind boisterous, he was afraid; and beginning to sink (v. 30).
Notice, why when Peter was unconscious, he could walk on water, and when he came to his senses, he drowned? It is because when he is “unconscious”, he is affected by seeing Jesus walking on water. When Peter came to his senses, he began to sink, and he asked for help. Jesus stretched out His hand and said, “O thou of little faith, wherefore didst thou doubt?” (verse 30). And when they were come into the ship, the wind ceased. Then they that were in the ship came and worshipped him, saying, Of a truth thou art the Son of God” (vv. 32–33).
It is no coincidence that the Bible records the events of Jesus walking on water because Jesus actually wanted to show that this is the way of the Christian life, like walking on water. The pattern of our life is not servants of God. Our pattern of life is not Paul, not Peter, or others. The pattern of our life is Jesus.
We must live just as Jesus lived. If Jesus could live supernaturally, we must also follow in His footsteps. That is what He wants, that we all live in infinity. He wants us all to live in supernatural laws so that everything in our life happens supernaturally. Is it possible? Yes, it possible!
Maybe we are wondering, how? How can we feed 5,000 people with just five loaves of bread and two fishes? Notice, we all have to look at the life of Jesus and imitate it, because Jesus did give us life and indeed He is the living God. Do we have to have the ability to make our bodies light with martial arts so that we can walk on water? No. Jesus did not have that ability. However, Jesus had an ability which was called the to empty oneself, and only those who can emptied themselves could walk on water.
