Stand at the edge of a dock and dip a toe into the calm water. Ripples form and move away farther than the eye can see.
Stand at the edge of a dock and jump into the calm water. From the splash, droplets have been distributed in every direction.
That is a condensed version of the New Testament. As Jesus began his ministry, he was making changes in people’s lives that they could not explain even as they watched the lame walk, the blind see and the skin of the leper heal. John the Baptist immersed new believers in the water and they became the start of a ripple-effect of believers to follow after them. The splash was Jesus dying on the cross. He promised to send the Holy Spirit to strengthen believers as they go to all ends of the earth spreading the Word (droplets).
Stand at the edge of a dock and what do you do?
