"A rolling stone gathers no moss" - Publilius Syrus
The above proverb simply means that people who are always moving, with no roots in one place or another, avoid responsibilities and cares. This interpretation is however not fit for this write-up. The inspiration for this post and the interpretation is gotten from the amazing song by Lauren Daigle titled Still rolling stones! It’s an amazing song I heard during the choir ministration at Lakewood Church.
Every once in a while, you hear a song ministration so powerful it causes a paradigm shift in your life. This is that song and as I listened to the lyrics, the proverb came to mind. One line of the song talks about how we often feel that we’re too far gone, acknowledging that despite the fact that we tend to dig the graves we fall into, God is still calling out for us. This brought to mind the grace of God that covers us from all sin (Rom. 8:1) and the fact that no matter how far gone we are, God is still calling out for us, He still wants to be our father, He still loves us!
Love so great that the Apostle Paul tried to understand the logic (Rom. 5:7-8). Love so great that He sent His son to die for us (John 3:16)
You are not too far gone for God to love you. There is absolutely nothing that can take the love of God away from you. He is calling out for you, all you have to do is answer and when you answer, like a rolling stone, no moss (sin or condemnation) can stick on you. Keep rolling my dear stoney friend and never forget, there is no condemnation to those that are in Christ Jesus.
When the devil tries to remind you of your sins tell him you are a rolling stone and there is no moss (condemnation, sin, shame, you name it!) on you. When the devil cries out shame, cry out grace! (Rom. 5:20).
The charge is simple, answer His call and whenever you need grace, approach His throne of grace boldly and ask … Heb. 4:16.
Stay blessed and remember a rolling stone gathers no moss.
