Mountaineering

Mountaineering

Mark 9: 2 “After six days Jesus took Peter, James and John with him and led them up a high mountain, where they were all alone.”

Jesus led them up a mountain that was high. It was tough, tiring and it took time!

That’s what we know about mountains.

We also know:

  1. The experience of sacrifice e.g. moments of fasting and giving. God called Abraham to a mountain range to kill his son, Genesis 22:1-2
  2. The experience of phenomena, e.g. the glory on the mountain Moses was called to in Exodus 24:12-18. We have known many manifestations of God’s Spirit.
  3. The experience of prayer and guidance, e.g. the prayer mountain of Jesus in Luke 6:12-13. We have found guidance from the periods of prayer we have spent with God.
  4. The experience of divine call and purpose for living, e.g. the mountain of the great commission in Matthew 28:16-20. And today …
  5. The experience of transformation, e.g. the glory of Christ on the mountain of transfiguration in Matthew 17:1-3. We have known the transformational work of the Spirit in our lives.

All 5 of these mountain experiences were tough, tiring and took time. But it was worth it in the end.

Are you climbing a mountain today?
