The Mountains Are Calling
Making the Climb for a Clearer View of God and Ourselves
WHO: Jarrett Stephens, teaching pastor at Prestonwood Baptist Church in Plano, Texas.
HE SAYS: “God will continue to invite us into his presence to experience him. He is waiting for us to ascend the mountains to know him more intimately and to grow stronger in our relationship with him.”
THE BIG IDEA: By examining mountaintop experiences found in Scripture, we can understand that God still calls us to mountains today—to follow him to higher places of worship, surrender and mission.
The author looks at nine mountains in the Bible, what happened there and what those experiences tell us today about God.
Beginning with “Mount Moriah: The God Who Is Provider” through “The Last Mountain: The God Who Is Returning,” the text offers inspiration to seek God out and share the gospel.
