Welcome to worship!
The summer has been packed with exciting moments for many of us. I imagine some would even say they have had a "mountaintop" experience.
We are finishing our journey Into the Wilderness today with our last stop up on a high mountain with Jesus and an interesting cast of characters. Peter, James, and John had hiked up the long trail with Jesus but once they got there they had company waiting. At first glance they must have thought it was exhaustion, dehydration, or altitude sickness that caused them to see such a strange scene. But once Jesus started hanging out with the unlikely duo they had to have known this was going to be a mountaintop experience unlike any other.
When we stick close with Jesus wherever he leads, we will learn that the God who was, and is, and is to come, is always doing a new thing in our midst. Let us be ready to join God in each new adventure!
