Digging Deeper

“There is nothing deep down inside us except what we have put there ourselves.”  -Richard Rorty

In Second Kings chapter 3, Israel is in the midst of severe drought so the rulers ask the prophet Elisha to intercede with God for them to send rain.  God tells them to first dig ditches.  Just like God: they ask for a blessing but He gives them a work order.  We too must obey God and dig ditches.  For some this may mean forgiving someone, others giving up pornography, and most of us by going deeper in our relationship with God simply by spending time with Him.  When we obey God in faith, He never fails to send the rain.

So you see, faith by itself isn't enough. Unless it produces good deeds, it is dead and useless (James 2:17, NLT).
