Let’s Go Deeper

Greetings, The Gatherings, Testimonies and Prayer. This is Thanksgiving Week—Focus On Being Thankful. John Avanzini is speaking on Super Sunday Next Week (November 26).

Luke 5:1-4 (NLT): One day as Jesus was preaching on the shore of the Sea of Galilee, great crowds pressed in on him to listen to the word of God. 2 He noticed two empty boats at the water’s edge, for the fishermen had left them and were washing their nets. Stepping into one of the boats, Jesus asked Simon, [b] its owner, to push it out into the water. So he sat in the boat and taught the crowds from there. 4 When he had finished speaking, he said to Simon, ‘Now go out where it is deeper, and let down your nets to catch some fish.’” 

This Morning I Want To Take Some Time To Repair and Prepare The Church For The Harvest. There are too many shallow folks out there, no depth to them whatsoever. They are offended by everything, don’t receive anything, and are cranky, crabby, mean and rude—no fruit. I don’t want to leave until you understand that we Muse Go Out Where It Is Deeper.  “Deeper” —–> A Greater Depth From The Surface Area.

Don’t Be An Empty Vessel—Jesus Step Into My Boat. Ephesians 5:18 (NLT): “Don’t be drunk with wine, because that will ruin your life. Instead, be filled with the Holy Spirit.” 

Follow The Instructions—Push Out Into The Water. John 14:15-16 (NLT): “If you love me, obey my commandments. And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Advocate, who will never leave you.”  

Go Out Where It’s Deeper—Let Down Your Nets. 1 Corinthians 2:9-10 (NLT): “That is what the Scriptures mean when they say, ‘No eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no mind has imagined what God has prepared for those who love him.’ But it was to us that God revealed these things by his Spirit. For his Spirit searches out everything and shows us God’s deep secrets.” 

In Closing: Luke 5:5-7 (NLT): “’Master,’ Simon replied, ‘we worked hard all last night and didn’t catch a thing. But if you say so, I’ll let the nets down again.’ And this time their nets were so full of fish they began to tear! A shout for help brought their partners in the other boat, and soon both boats were filled with fish and on the verge of sinking.”
