LAUNCH OUT INTO THE DEEP (Luke 5:1-6)

There are times in our lives when we must learn to launch out into deep waters. As we are in a world that has moved onto greater technology and advancements, it was done simply by taking risk and living by the saying “Learn to plan, or plan to fail.” Some churches even though in a new century, have failed to keep up because we’ve fail to Launch out in the deep, and to add ministries that will help our people.

The lesson begins with Jesus down by the lake of Gennesaret. Now whether it was his intention to teach while he was there or he went there to get some rest it's not written. But, the text reveals to us that there was a multitude there pressing to hear the Word of God. So, Jesus noticed two boats standing by the lake, but the fishermen were gone out of them, and were washing their nets. That is when Jesus entered one of the boats, which was Simon’s, and asked him to launch out from the shore, and it was there that the scriptures said that Jesus sat down and taught the people. And when He was done, He said to Simon, Launch out into the deep, and let down your nets for a drought. Now we should note Simon’s answer, it was reluctant in kind, he said “Master we have toiled all night, and have taken nothing.”
