A Night On A Mountain!
Fine, I’ll admit it.
I like to get away. I want to spend time alone when I’m really trying to focus. When things are getting intense, or I really need to dive into my relationship with God, it is best done alone. It doesn’t really matter where, just that I’m alone and can focus on preparing myself for whatever God has in mind and getting right with Him.
Things for Jesus on Tuesday night are similar. Tonight, the final Tuesday night of His earthly ministry, He will separate Himself from everyone. Scripture says that He goes away to the Mount of Olives to spend the night.
He knows what’s coming in a couple of days.
He knows He is going to die for all mankind.
He knows He is going to be the payment for our mistakes.
He is getting right with His Father.
He is preparing for what God has in mind for Him.
He is preparing spiritually for the task of saving the world. A task that God has ordained for Him since before time.
Luke 21:37 (NLT) – “Every day Jesus went to the Temple to teach, and each evening he returned to spend the night on the Mount of Olives.”
So, what about you? Could it be, that God is preparing you for something? Is it time for you to maybe, get away from the rush of everyday life and step onto your mountain What better time than a week like this, to spend some time with God, preparing for what He has in mind.
