When I first saw this painting, I was moved by the beautiful colors and the new perspective of Jesus Christ. Then I realized that this is what Peter would have seen when his faith faltered as he attempted to walk on the water calling out as he sank, "Lord, save me!"
I soon realized that each of us are in the same predicament symbolically. We each have failed in someway on our path to be like Jesus and He is always there for us. We just need to reach out and grab His hand.
