THE WAY: Go From The Mountain

In Mark 9, we see Jesus shining with the Glory of God for the first time...
The transfiguration of Jesus that took place on top of that mountain was a promise & glimpse into a kind of life beyond what is apparent to earthly eyes. He was allowing them to see things from a Kingdom perspective, see Him the way God sees Him...filled with the light of His glory. As we go from the mountain, it’s important to remember things from that perspective, no matter what comes against us...we are all inherited children of God filled with His glory.

THE WAY: What is your intention?

Jesus made it possible for people to belong, and have life to the full. To all Those who would never be given a chance and even be disregarded..
Despite what people may be walking in, He sees their potential, and their legacy. He paid the high price because He knew our worth. What is our intent? We may have the best intentions to see people’s lives changed, but do we see THEM as God SEES them...


THE WAY: Be Selfless

Can you imagine how Jesus must of felt, after the loss of his cousin and great friend, John the Baptist? He was heartbroken and mourning his loss. He arrived off the boat to a massive crowd, waiting for Him. Jesus, despite His circumstance, saw them and his heart was filled with compassion. He saw they appeared as lost sheep without a Shepard, He ministered and taught them many things. 
(ref, Mark 6:34)


The Way: By His Side

Jesus cherished companionship. He was intentional in choosing who’d walk by His side closely. He saw something unique in each of His disciples and recognized the power and influence they carried individually. He called forth identity & purpose in each of them...and taught them The Way of the kingdom. Even today, He wants us close, By His Side... “The Lord is close to all who call on Him.”


The Way: Who Are You Carrying To Jesus?

Do the healthy need a physician? Throughout scripture, you see Jesus going into the most unlikely places, dinning with notable sinners, and showing compassion to the cast aside. He met people right where they were, restoring hope to the hopeless and healing the broken. We are called to be an influence, and a light in our daily lives. What separates us from everyone else at work or the grocery store? We are called to Love radically...Who are you carrying to Jesus?
