“It is true; Christ admonishes us to launch out into the deep, but never without Him by our side.” –Kenneth Kuykendall

     Before you trusted Christ in salvation you were drowning in a sea of sin. You could not save yourself; therefore you desperately needed a Deliverer, a Savior.

When Christ found you, He lifted you from your despair, brought you to the shoreline and promised that you would never drown again. He assured you that He would never leave you.

What comfort and peace we find in this wonderful promise; however, the problem for many believers is that after Christ saved them from their sins, they learn how to swim. They grow, they develop, and they get strong. Such strength produces courage, and such courage causes them to swim on their own.

In their own strength and ability, they believe they can go back into the watery grave and sustain themselves. The truth is, however, Christ never saved us so that we could become independently strong. His salvation never leads to self-sufficiency. We are in constant need of His grace and mercy.

It is true; Christ admonishes us to launch out into the deep, but never without Him by our side.
