Make your radio call to the Pilot of the Universe…

Confess your sins. Call them by name — pride, cheating, lying, immorality, greed, unforgiveness, etc. The word “sin” actually means “missing the mark” — not many things are more embarrassing for a pilot than to arrive at the wrong destination.

Tell God you are repenting — willing to forsake all known sin and the root of your sins which is selfishness. Tell Him, “you are now the pilot of my life.”

Tell God you are believing in Him — giving yourself entirely to Him and receiving Jesus Christ into your life as Lord and Savior. “Iím no longer in the left seat of my plane: you take it Lord, Iíll fly right side.”

He will keep His word, forgive you and come into your life, making you new.

During IMC,21 your senses might be giving you correct information, but you fly by the instruments. Emotions are your senses, but the instruments to set your course by are found in the Bible. In this case, the Word is more than the FAR and AIM, itís also the charts, the GPS, the compass, the air speed indicator…

You may make this commitment with or without deep emotions. Your reaction is determined by temperament, background and Godís individual approach to you. You know that someone else is in the pilotís seat: you have committed your will to please the Lord and this is essential. Emotions will pass, but you fly by your instruments, not your seat.

Thank the Lord now for becoming His child and for His new life within you.


21 IMC, Instrument Meterological Conditions, when flying during inclement weather, pilots donít look out the windows for location, attitude, or speed. They must rely on their instruments.
