Israel Day 4

Today in Galilee

I gazed at the hilltop where Jesus delivered the Sermon on the Mount.

Climbed on rocks in the Jordan River.

Stood in the ruins of the Capernaum Temple where Jesus delivered one of His most difficult messages.

I saw Peter’s house on the shore of the Sea of Galilee (which by the way is really a lake).

Walked the hillside where Jesus feed 5,000 hungry people with only 5 loaves and 2 fish.

Sailed the waters where Jesus walked and Peter sank.

Photographed the cliffs where a horde of demons plunged a herd of pigs to their death at Jesus command.

Drove the beachline where Jesus called simple fisherman to become His disciples.

I took time to reflect on the rocky shore of the Sea of Galilee, all the while wondering:  if I had lived here during Jesus ministry, would I have had the courage to follow Him?

Do I have the courage to follow Him?
