The word launch simply means “to start [something] or [to] set [something] in motion.” Ultimately, when we think about launching something, we tend to think about the beginning of some campaign, effort, or mission. As a result, most of the ways in which we use “launching” terminology connotes something that is adventurous, something that is challenging, something that may be even a little risky. However, that same terminology also carries with it the hope, the potential, the expectation of a great achievement and/or reward. Such is the case when Jesus instructed Peter to “Launch out into the deep and let down your nets for a catch” (Luke 5:4). And this instruction is just as relevant today as it was at the outset of Jesus’ ministry.
