"Then a cloud appeared and covered them, and a voice came from the cloud:"This is my Son, whom I love. Listen to him!"" (Mark 9:7)
"Mountain top" is used to describe wonderful, enlightening experiences. It doesn't, necessarily, mean you have (or are at) been on a "mountain." My most recent "mountain top" experience was learning about scuba diving -- definitely NOT at the top of a mountain! I was "only" about 20' down but the seeing God's awesome creation UNDER the water is such a wonderful experience I can only refer to it as "mountain top." What about you? Have you had such a wonderful, enlightening experience -- at (or below) ground level?
Jesus has taken 3 Disciples "up the mountain" with him. Peter, James and John have seen Jesus "transfigured before them." (v. 2) They see Jesus talking to Elijah and Moses. They don't know what to say because they "were so frightened." (v. 6) They are trying to figure out what is happening when the cloud "covered" them and a voice says "LISTEN TO HIM!" (v. 9 emphasis mine) Then Jesus tells them, on the way down the mountain not to tell anyone "until the Son of Man had risen from the dead." (v. 9) Not talking about what they had seen, and heard (even Peter's question about building "shelters"!), had to have been hard. Think about how excited we get when we have had our "mountain top" experiences!
So..... are you listening for what God is trying to say to you? Are you sharing, the Son of Man IS "risen from the dead" (v. 9), now -- we CAN share! -- the where and how you have felt God with you? Something to think about as we start into the Lenten season........
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
