Vantage Point

 

I love to get a view from Casper Mountain.  It allows me to see what I cannot see from down in the city.  I have a favorite prayer spot.  Here it is...

This vantage point improves my sight which helps me in many ways.  In this week's Bible text, Jesus gave Peter, James and John a new vantage point too!

And after six days Jesus took with him Peter and James and John, and led them up a high mountain by themselves. And he was transfigured before them, and his clothes became radiant, intensely white, as no one on earth could bleach them. And there appeared to them Elijah with Moses, and they were talking with Jesus.

You can read the whole text here: http://bible.com/59/mrk.9.1-13.esv

Later on, Peter writes that 'We were eyewitnesses of his majesty. For when he received honor and glory from God the Father, and the voice was borne to him by the Majestic Glory, “This is my beloved Son, with whom I am well pleased,” we ourselves heard this very voice borne from heaven, for we were with him on the holy mountain.'  http://bible.com/59/2pe.1.16-19,21.esv

It may be that God has given you a special vantage point where you can go and get a better perspective on life or the world around you.  However, it may be a hike to get to it.  Of course, we may not be talking about a physical mountain or a real hike...

Do we see all that God wants us to see?  Find the vantage point that God desires you to have and see what a difference it makes in how you see Him and how you see others!
