I realize there is such a thing as a phony, flaky pseudo spiritual weirdness that attempts to mascarade itself as being “deep”.
Yes some are so “deep” they are stuck.
However much of the ineffectiveness of the church as a whole card be attributed to it’s being “shallow”.
The opposite of being deep is being shallow.
Shallow roots get ripped out easily but those planted in the deep soil bring forth 30, 60, and 100 fold fruit (Matthew 13, Mark 4, Luke 8).
Many are being devoured, destroyed and ripped out because they are shallow and satisfied and not deep enough.
The wise man DIGGED DEEP AND LAID HIS FOUNDATION UPON A ROCK (Luke 6:47-48) and could not be shaken by the storms.
Much of this belittling of being deep is just a cop out and excuse to stay spiritually lazy, satisfied and self justified by nothing more than a moral code, belief system or dress code with NO DEPTH IN GOD.
It requires strenuous effort and DEEP DESIRE for God to dig deep into the rock, the soil or the ocean.
The fishermen were required to launch out into the DEEP and let down their nets for a draught of fishes (Luke 5:4).
Get out of the shallow and into the depths.
DEEP CALLETH UNTO DEEP (Psalm 42:7).
The DEEP is where the strong foundation that cannot be shaken is (Luke 6:47-48).
The DEEP is where the harvest is (Luke 5:4).
The DEEP is where the fruit is (Matthew 13:5
God wants us to know Him in the breadth, length, height and DEPTH (Ephesians 3:19).
Paul wrote the Spirit of God wants to reveal the DEEP things of God to those that love Him (1 Corinthians 2:9-13).
