30.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!" --matthew 14
cried out:Lord save me! what does Peter want, did he want Jesus to save
him out of the water.
My answer: no Peter want Jesus to save his
soul. He wants spiritual salvation. because Peter is a fisherman, if he
only want to get out of water, he can simply swim back to his boat,
which is not far away from him. From early verses that the disciples have
a conversation with Jesus actually tell us that Jesus is not far away
from the boat. so when Peter cried out to Jesus:" Lord, save me" is
actually a very remarkaball statement of faith.
when peter is in trouble
instead trying to find comfort by our own endeavour(swim to the boat),
he turns to Jesus and depend on His strength all the time.
