Re:Verse passage – Mark 3:13-19 (day six)
“And He went up on the mountain” vs 13a
When you hear the words “mountain top experience” as it pertains to a physical mountain, what comes to your mind? Do you think of a great view? Do you think of the feeling of accomplishment of reaching the top? Do you think of the hard work that it took to get there?
Jesus often went up the mountain with His disciples. Why? Was it just to get away or was it more? Being on top of a mountain gives you a new found perspective. It causes you to look up and see where you are going. It causes you to look back and see where you came from. It causes you to look out and see a beauty that is not visible from the ground, only from above.
Jesus shows us that when we encounter Him, we have a mountain top experience. We are given new perspective from above!
Colossians 3:2 “Set your minds on the things that are above, not on the things that are on earth.”
