Grant Crawford shared this before the sermon:
- A prophetic picture was shared during worship of thorns becoming diamonds.
- God wants to strengthen and sustain us.
- There is a sense of a fresh calling and awareness.
- Jesus came and said “go across to the other side…”
- There is this gap of flat water between the “go” and the “getting to the other side” – but this flat water has got some stuff we have to face.
- Jesus knew that His disciples were going to be sent not only across the water but across the Nations.
- There are some things we are going to meet as we go
- This miracle was a private one – just the disciples – Jesus was equipping His disciples personally, one on one.
