Moving beyond the mountaintop

September 27, 2010

And after six days Jesus took with him Peter and James and John, and led them up a high mountain by themselves. And he was transfigured before them….

—Mark 9:2

Have you ever had a spiritual mountaintop experience with Christ? I hope you have. We need glimpses of Christ in all his glory to fill us with faith and boldness. And yet, as wonderful as mountaintop experiences are, you and I are called to more! Let me explain.

In today's Scripture verse Jesus has taken disciples Peter, James, and John up on what we call the Mount of Transfiguration, because it was there that they saw Jesus transfigured in all of his resplendent glory. 

The disciples could see everything that Christ was on the inside demonstrated on the outside. For that dazzling moment his inherent, intrinsic, incarnate glory was revealed.

Now having seen Christ's glory, Peter wanted to stay right there on the mountain. Jesus had been talking about dying for the sins of mankind. So Peter said, "Lord, let's just stay here. Let's build a church and we'll stay here and worship."

Well, Peter is like many believers today, but that's not what God had in mind. We must translate our faith from the mountaintop to the valley! God doesn't intend for us just to buy ascension robes and wait on a roof somewhere for Jesus to return.

You are called to a mission! Not just to bask in his glory on the mountaintop, but to share his message with a lost and dying world.
