THEME: THE DWELLING PLACE OF THE MOST HIGH
The mountain in Biblical understanding is very symbolic. It signifies the dwelling place of God. It is a place of encounter with God. Today, the Prophet Isaiah gives us a picture of what comes out of that encounter:
- Our hunger is satisfied
- Our thirst quenched
- Our tears are wiped away.
In the Gospel text, the crowd that followed Jesus to the mountain could bear testimony to this as he healed their ailments and fed them to their fill. The Church is our own mountain open to all. There is really no special qualification for it. Little wonder Isaiah said, the banquet is prepared for all peoples (Isa 25:7) and Jesus proved him right when he told his disciples to make everyone sit, and fed all of them to their fill. We all can testify to the awesomeness of God’s presence if we come to him open and disposed to be filled, touched and renewed by Him.
Are you sick today? Are you worn out? Are you worried? Are you weighed down by the cares and troubles of life? Come to the dwelling place of God and the Lord will revive your soul and give you peace forever.
GOOD MORNING AND GOD BLESS !
