Hebrews 6:7-8

Scripture:
7Land that drinks in the rain often falling on it and that produces a crop useful to those for whom it is farmed receives the blessing of God. 8But land that produces thorns and thistles is worthless and is in danger of being cursed. In the end it will be burned.

Insight:
We are the land. The question is, “are we drinking in the rain often”? Are we in the Word of God? Are we spending time meditating on his Word? Are we fasting and praying for his revelation? We don’t control the rain, but in the verse it says “land that drinks”. This indicates that we must take action and accept it and make the effort to open up and drink. It doesn’t say land that is rained on often. It says land that drinks in the rain often falling on it. Then after we have received the rain and made it part of who we are, we are to produce a crop useful for whom it is farmed: GOD. We must take the water of his Word and act upon it. If we do not drink and do not produce a USEFUL crop, then we will be useless to God and burned up.
