Progress Over Perfection

  • Not perfection, but progression

Confidence – Peter had confidence, “if Jesus walked on water, so could I.” “Jesus, call me and I’ll come to you.” (Matthew 14:23 – 28)

  • “It’s about whose you are, not who you are.”
  • Take one step in confident.
  • Set aside perfection and go ahead. “Show us what to do.”
  • “Give God room to breathe.”
  • Have confidence in who Christ is.
  • Step out to see progress

Obedience (Matt. 14:29) Take first step and be obedient to what God says (calls us to.)

  • Sometimes we get so caught up with perfection we don’t do anything (“What ifs…”) What’s stopping you?
  • Savior not expecting perfection.

Dependence (Matt. 14:30 – 31)

  • We all make mistakes (like Peter)
  • Depend on God
  • If you don’t make mistakes, you’re not challenging yourself. Take risks, have obedience.
