Launching

Launch out into a deeper place in God
Let Him fill your emptiness
And guide you safely to the shore.

Launch out from your comfort zone
Let Him teach you how to live
And walk in darkness no more.

Launch out toward the Light of life.
His love awaits to give you new hope
And a peace like you’ve never had before.

At some point in every life there will be a launch time. Whether we are launching a new business, a new relationship, or a new attitude, launch day comes to us all.

Today is a great day to launch a new commitment to follow Jesus. He said those who follow Him would not walk in darkness but would have the Light of life (John 8:12).

We can safely launch each day knowing His Holy Spirit will

  • Teach us
  • Guide us
  • Speak to us
  • Reveal God’s plan to us
  • Correct us, and
  • Pray for us.

(John 14, 15, 16)

Why not launch out today?

Luke 5:1-11

5 One day, as the crowds were pressing close to him to hear the word of God, Jesus was standing by the lake of Gennesaret. 2 He saw two boats moored by the land; the fishermen had gone ashore and were washing their nets. 3 He got into one of the boats – it was Simon’s – and asked him to put out a little way from the land. Then he sat down in the boat and began to teach the crowd.

4 When he had finished speaking, he said to Simon, ‘Put out into the deeper part, and let down your nets for a catch.’

5 ‘Master,’ replied Simon, ‘we were working hard all night and caught nothing at all. But if you say so, I’ll let down the nets.’

6 When they did so, they caught such a huge number of fish that their nets began to break. 7 They signalled to their partners in the other boat to come and help them. So they came, and filled both the boats, and they began to sink.

8 When Simon Peter saw it, he fell down at Jesus’ knees.

‘Go away,’ he said. ‘Leave me, Lord! I’m a sinner!’ 9 He and all his companions were gripped with amazement at the catch of fish they had taken; 10 this included James and John, the sons of Zebedee, who were partners with Simon.

‘Don’t be afraid,’ said Jesus to Simon. ‘From now on you’ll be catching people.’

11 They brought the boats in to land. Then they abandoned everything and followed him.
