Matthew 5:1 And seeing the multitudes, he went up into a mountain: and when he was set, his disciples came unto him:
Good Morning, I want to talk with you a few days about your walk with the Lord Jesus. I am not talking about just a closer walk with Him, a deeper walk. I want to challenge you today to reconsider your relationship with Jesus. I am talking about its depth, breadth, and height.
You may think this is a strange verse to start with. What possible meaning could this verse have in taking our walk with the Lord to a different level? Look at it carefully.
Notice Jesus left the multitudes and went up. Once He was set. (The root meaning is to settle in, to be steadfast and unmovable.) He called His disciples unto Him.
The disciples had to follow Jesus upward. He went up. It is the direction of discipleship. Always upward. Always climbing higher. I have found that even when you are traveling around a mountain that even when you think you are going downhill you still have a measure of incline.
When you determine to go further with the Lord, I remind you the direction will always be up.
Let’s take the journey together, upward.
