     All Christians are in the kingdom (family) of God because of the obedience to the gospel of Christ (Acts 2:38, 41), and at the point of baptism was added, by Jesus the Christ (Acts 2:47).
     Subsequently, our joy should be in great excess over our any obstacles which may come our way. Therefore, as we mature in the Christian life, this world should begin to minimize and the world to come (heaven) should, simultaneously, begin to maximize. There is the imbalance of this world and what is offers, in comparison, to the perfect balance of heaven and what it offers.
     Brother Peter asked to walk on water to meet Jesus and was doing well, until he took his eyes off Jesus; placed them on himself and began to sink. Jesus walked on the water and said “O thou of little faith, wherefore didst thou doubt(Matt 14:22-33)?
     Let us be mindful of our shield of faith (Eph 6:16) to quench all the fiery darts of the opposition of the wicked and the calamity of wavering, which is to doubt (Jas 1:5-8).
