“When Jesus saw his ministry drawing huge crowds, he climbed a hillside. Those who were apprenticed to him, the committed, climbed with him.”
Matthew 5:1-2 MSG
Sometimes Jesus calls you to climb.
He draws you away from the noise of the crowds to a quiet place where He can speak to you.
A place that you can hear Him clearly with no distractions.
He wants to show you something new.
Jesus loved the crowds. He taught them, healed them and fed them but the teaching He was about to give was not for the crowds, it was for the climbers.
When Jesus calls you to climb with Him, you can bet that it is for your benefit.
You can also bet that it isn’t going to be easy.
Nothing worth having comes easy.
When Jesus calls you to climb higher it is to make you stronger.
If you are feeling lost in the crowd, maybe it is because you don’t belong there. You belong to Jesus and He is calling you higher.
What you learn there will change your life.
What mountain is Jesus calling you to climb with Him today?
