The Reading of the Day is from Matt 14:22-33. This story is preceded by the feeding of the five thousand. Both accounts are “exodus flavored,” only in reverse. In Exodus, the Israelites crossed the Red Sea and then were miraculously fed manna in the desolate wilderness. In Matthew, the Jews are miraculously fed bread; then the disciples cross the Sea of Galilee. Both sea traversals happen at night (Exodus 14:21–25; Matthew 14:25), and both are made possible only by the Lord’s miracle. He is the One who brings about the new and better exodus for Israel and the world—an exodus out of sin and death into righteousness and life. Jesus was gracious to Peter when he feared drowning. Jesus is gracious to us and ready to catch us when we sink in sin and unbelief. His hand is always strong to save.444
