The Disruptive Constant

Throughout history there has always been something or someone that came seemingly out of nowhere, to disrupt the status quo. When it was an individual it was like a starburst in pitch black night, blinding, otherworldly, unavoidable. When it was a movement, an invention, or a new technology, those who are first to see them for what they are get on board, and those who do not are left scratching their heads and bemoaning their decisions as they watch what they thought was stable, secure, and indestructible turn to rubble before their very eyes.

Either way, those who do not live with the expectation of the disruptive constant always seem to get blindsided, and those who do, always seem to be nimble enough to see it coming, and react early enough wherein they are not negatively affected.

A wise man lives with the expectation of change, and hedges against it. A fool goes along with the ebb and flow of the tide, never finding himself on sure footing, never truly being at peace, because he is always living in an environment of uncertainty.

It used to be that disruptive change occurred once every century or so. Buggy whip makers had a hard go of it when Henry Ford unveiled his assembly line for automobiles, but there was nothing that came along five years later that upended the automobile industry.

Nowadays, it seems disruptive change is occurring at the speed of sound, and everywhere you turn, something is being upended and turned inside out. Whether it’s politics, the way people shop, the way people travel, the way people date, or the way people interact, it has all been upended, and just when you think you’ve found your footing, it gets put through the blender once more, and is revamped anew.

Because of the ever present disruption, change, uncertainty and volatility, more and more people are looking for something stable, constant, and unchanging. They are looking to invest their time, their energy, their heart, and their life in something of permanence, that will not be turned on its ear in a matter of months, and be altogether worthless within a few years’ time.

There is permanence in Christ. By His own word He is unchanging, and in Him there is no shadow of turning. There is no disruptive force, nor individual that can cause God to alter His plans against His will, and knowing this, we know that He will always be stable, a constant, the true north for the human soul.

And yet, somehow, rather than optimize our message to showcase the permanence of our God, we are trying to follow in the world’s footsteps, attempting to find new ways to rebrand, repackage, and remake the eternal God of all that is. We have concluded, and erroneously so, that if everything in the world is in a disruptive pattern, God must be as well if we hope to reconnect Him with mankind.

God will not be remade in man’s image, no matter how much the soothsayers might want it so. God will not acquiesce to calling sin something other than what it is because political correctness demands it. God will not be manipulated, cajoled, worn down, or otherwise deterred from keeping His promises, and judging righteously among all nations.

With love in Christ,
Michael Boldea Jr.
