Dig Deeper

I'm from Arkansas, and when you live in the hills, there are a few things that you need to survive.  One is water.  Because there were no county utilities in the area, you had to dig your well.  That was a bit tricky.

First of all, you had to dig hundreds of feet.  Then you would hit the water.  A lot of prayers went into it because you didn't want to strike a sulfur vein.  Think about drinking rotten eggs.  Yuch!  But wait it could get worse.  What if you hit a hot spring?  Couple that with sulfur and now you have hot rotten eggs.

As a general rule, the deeper you dug, the more water you would get.  If you wanted to have hot water, a good shower, and enough to run the washer machine, you needed a reliable well.

So the person digging the well would hit water.  But you would have to dig a little deeper.  "We're getting more water," they would say!  Dig a little deeper.  Then you would hit a lot of water!!  Ok - Stop there!

Isa 12:3 With joy you will draw water from the wells of salvation.

Most people ask Jesus into their hearts and think, "That's good enough!"  But they need to dig a little deeper.

Some people go to church and think, "That's good enough!"  But they need to dig a little deeper.

Others pour their heart into worshipping and honor Christ with their lives.  They say, "I know the joy of the Lord as my strength."

Dig deep enough into your relationship with Christ so that it satisfies the needs of your soul.

PRAY:  Dear Jesus, teach me to dig deeper.  AMEN
