FAITH IN FOCUS:
W
DEEPER WATER
e all like to feel
comfortable
and we all
have our own little ways of
doing things that we’ve got
used to. That’s because by
nature we’re creatures of
habit. We don’t like to be
put out or troubled by having to learn new ways. We
like a quiet life.
R
eligious
people
sometimes use
their faith in the
same way. It becomes a comfort
and a crutch, a
way of doing
things that makes
them feel secure
and unthreatened. Faith
becomes the spiritual insurance policy that guarantees
peace of mind.
B
ut at the heart of faith
is risk. Faith involves
making that leap, walking
along the path with no
signs, trusting when you
know that everything could
go wrong. Faith is an invitation not to remain where we
are but to seek ever new
and more enriching pas-
tures, to stretch ourselves,
to be challenged in ways
that we cannot even suspect but which will carry
their own rewards. Christian faith, in particular, is
not an anaesthetic but an
adventure.
I
n today’s gospel we
see Jesus telling Simon Peter to put out
the boats into deeper water. Normally you don’t
catch many fish by the
edge of a lake; you have to
be bold and move into the
middle. And, sure enough,
having fished all night long
and caught nothing, it was
when the disciples obeyed
Jesus’ request to put out
into deeper water that they
not only caught fish but
netted a catch that
astounded them.
T
he deeper the water the more uncomfortable people
feel, because you can’t
touch the bottom. But the
deeper the water the greater the catch. Our sluggishness encourages us to remain static in faith. We’re
content to catch fish when
Jesus promises us that we
could be catching
people, encouraging
men and women to
come to Christ.
We’re prepared to
do the basic minimum in our faith, to
enjoy the view close
to the shore, when
Jesus promises us a
magnificent experience on the high seas.
T
oday’s liturgy challenges us to be bolder in our relationship with
God and with others, to
grow in faith and trust, to
move to areas in our lives
that are as yet uncharted.
Yes, we’re bound to have
doubts about our safety.
But God does not promise
us a calm passage…just a
safe landing.
