A plunging stone

Posted by appolus on March 14, 2021

Have you ever seen a stone plunge into the water? As it falls into the water is stretches the fabric of the undisturbed lake. A hole emerges as the stone plummets to the deep and just as suddenly, the hole repairs itself and we are left with concentric circles stretching out in all directions like the rings of a tree until they reach the edge of the waters in all directions.

When you come to Christ you disrupt the waters. There is a violent reaction in the fabric of your world. It tears a hole in it and disrupts everyone around you. Jesus did not come to bring peace. His presence violently disrupted the fabric of this world. He came down from the heavens and tore a hole in the fabric of our existence. And forever more, His presence in you sends out concentric circles which disrupt the surface tension of your waters. The ripple effect causes trouble in a world that seeks to be left alone. He is the great revolutionary.

How many can say that when they came to Christ all hell broke loose around them? Amen, the war against darkness is not for the faint of heart. Jesus is a disrupter. Those at ease in Babylon will cry out in protest that their slumbers have been disturbed. Hell will violently oppose the works of Light that diminishes and sets to flight its darkness. Yet there is another kind of violence. Jesus says in Matt 11:12 that the Kingdom of heaven suffers violence and the violent take it by force.

We saints violently oppose the works of darkness. We violently oppose our own flesh despite the fact that it wars against our spirits. We have battles within and we have battles without. And because we have the light of the glory of the knowledge of God emanating from deep within us, then we shall find ourselves oftentimes surrounded by darkness. We seem to have trouble on every side, persecuted, cast down. Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors in Christ Jesus. We are not destroyed, we are not forsaken. The light from the glory and the knowledge of God is life to us, eternal life, and it has conquered the darkness.

In us, God has displaced hell and sin and death and replaced it with heaven and holiness and life. And it is these concentric circles, these irrepressible ripples of disruption that flow from us into a dark world touching everything for the cause of Christ. Be encouraged saint, your very life, Christ in you, has disrupted the darkness and will continue to so so until we reach the ends of the earth, the end of our journey that takes us home.
