February 13, 2012 - Climb Every Day

By Dave Kidd

“When Jesus saw his ministry drawing huge crowds, he climbed a hillside. Those who were apprenticed to him, the committed, climbed with him. Arriving at a quiet place, he sat down and taught his climbing companions” (Matthew 5:1,2, The Message).

One of the advantages of reading different translations of the Bible is that you see new things in passages you have read before — perhaps, many times before.

This morning in my devotions, I read the passage that the above verses come from, Matthew 5. I had never noticed The Message’s depiction of only the disciples following Him up the mountain.

Just as those disciples were committed to Christ, hanging on His every word, so too must we. Where in your life do you need to climb higher with Christ? Lace up your climbing boots! There is so much waiting for you!
