Get out of that Kiddie Pool and Launch Out into the Deep

Launch out into the deepLuke 5:4, 6, “… he (Jesus) said unto Simon, Launch out into the deep, and let down your nets for a draught (catch). … And when they had done this, they inclosed a great multitude of fishes …”

Far too many Christians have settled for “kiddie pool Christianity.” Rather than “launch out into the deep” with and for Jesus, many of us have settled for wading in the “shallow waters” of life where comfort, convenience, and the rest of the crowd can be found. There’s “a great multitude of fishes” to be caught for those who are willing to leave the “shallow waters” and forsake “kiddie pool Christianity!”

Launching out into the deep isn’t necessarily the same thing for everyone. God has a specific purpose and plan for your life. A specific purpose for which you were created. That’s between you and Him. Yet, there’s a really slim chance that you will ever find it in the “shallow waters,” in the “kiddie pool” just kicking it with your buddies.

Don’t allow your fear of others; your fear of failure, and/or your fear of loss, keep you from launching out into the deep waters of life with and for Jesus. That’s where the adventure begins!

Kiddie pool =2It might be high time to get out of those “shallow waters,” get out of that “kiddie pool,” even if your friends aren’t willing too, and do some deep sea fishing for God!
