The Sacred Summit

Matthew 5:1 says, “When Jesus saw the crowds, he went up on the mountainside and sat down.”

America is in a hurry!  Time has skyrocketed in value because of its scarcity.  Jesus invites you and me, “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened…” (Matthew 11:28).  He invites us to leave behind the budgets, the bills, the deadlines; and walk the narrow trail with him to the sacred summit.

You can tell the ones who have been there.  Their difficulties are just as severe, but there is stubborn peace that surrounds them…a contagious delight sparkles in their eyes.  And in their hearts reigns a fortress-like confidence that the valley can be endured, even enjoyed, because the mountain is always only a decision away.
