Christ did not stand by waiting for Peter to descend lower into the water. The moment Peter called to the Lord, in that instant, IMMEDIATELY Jesus reached out his hand and lifted him.
Jesus does not wait to see how low we sink in our pit of despair or how deep we drown in our sea of sorrows before he rescues us. He does not linger for us to fall deeper in an ocean of hopelessness or plummet to a lower level in a sewer.
When we call to Him, Jesus saves us IMMEDIATELY. Our Lord died on the cross and saved us because he loves us and wants to be our Savior day by day, hour by hour, minute by minute. He gave his life for us so we’d be close to Him and enjoy His presence all the time. Christ rescued us to be our friend forever. Jesus delivered us so we could be his children and He’d be our Father. The Son of God set us free so we’d have a relationship with him, our Savior, Lord and God.
Jesus answers us IMMEDIATELY when we call for help and if we believe this, we should look up for His hand reaching out to us.
