The strongest rocks are metamorphic rocks. They form when weaker rocks are heated and put under pressure. This process makes granite, marble, quartzite and other very solid rocks. Through this process, limestone becomes marble. Granite forms its distinctive strength and beauty, which allows it to be useful in construction.
Metamorphic rocks remind me of men’s ministry. Men who become bedrock anchors for their church develop slowly, and over time are shaped and proven by the heat and pressure of Christian living. A man who continues to grow and mature over the long haul will become both discipled and disciplined.
These men take time to solidify both Christian living and doctrinal constructs.
Do not be conformed to this age, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may discern what is the good, pleasing, and perfect will of God. – Romans 12:2 (HCSB)
The word translated ‘transformed’ is the Greek word that became the English word ‘metamorphosis.’ Men who endure the heat and pressure of Christian living become transformed into something greater. Something of the Master’s design.
