Hi friends! Upfront, I want to say: there is no specific commonality between God’s Word and Rolling Stone magazine. In fact, nothing compares to God’s Word! However, when I saw a year-old magazine cover hit social media again, I was reminded of a passage that warns of a rolling stone! The passage above warns that he who rolls a stone, upon him it will return! So, what kind of stone is being rolled?
The cover of Rolling Stone magazine in March 2019 featured “women shaping the future.” On it, stand Rep. Jahana Hayes (D-CT), Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), a few of the most left-leaning liberal women in all of government.
Are these really the women we want shaping our future? Our guide must be the Word of God…not Rolling Stone magazine. There is no need to read the article, as we know (based on voting records and stated positions) where these women stand on issues of morality and Biblical principles. For example, each is pro-abortion, none uphold the sanctity of marriage and all take antisemitic positions when it comes to Israel.
So, here is food for thought. Rolling Stone may promote these women as leaders of America’s future, but the writer of Proverbs warns against “rolling stones!” Those “stones” of immorality, lack of value for human life and antisemitism may one day roll back upon them.
But, I am reminded of another Biblical “rolling stone.”
59 And Joseph took the body and wrapped it in a clean linen cloth, 60 and laid it in his own new tomb, which he had hewn out in the rock; and he rolled a large stone against the entrance of the tomb and went away.~Matthew 27:59-60
Indeed, after Jesus died on a cross for your sins, my sins and the sins of those women, a stone was rolled into place. It was placed because that was the method of sealing a tomb, allowing no one in and no one out. Yet three days later…
Now after the Sabbath, as it began to dawn toward the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary came to look at the grave. 2 And behold, a severe earthquake had occurred, for an angel of the Lord descended from heaven and came and rolled away the stone and sat upon it.~Matthew 28:1-2
Now, that’s a true “rolling stone” story!
We all need the resurrection power of Jesus that was displayed by the miraculous rolling away of the stone! He is alive for you, for me and for those women! He is alive for all.
If you are reading this and wondering what it all means, it is simple:
- We are all sinners.
- The wages of sin is death…eternal death in hell.
- There is a free gift of God…Jesus’ death, burial and resurrection.
- God is willing to exchange that free gift of salvation in return for your sin and unrighteousness.
- When you accept that exchange, He will give you eternal life in His presence forever.

There is a rolling stone that matters…look to it for life!
