Jesus and Mountains

To read the Bible in a year, read John 6:1-21.
Jesus crossed over from one side of the Sea of Galilee to the other side (John 6:1), and John added, “Then a great multitude followed Him, because they saw His signs which He performed on those who were diseased” (v. 2). Rather than basking in His celebrity status, look at what He did next, “And Jesus went up on the mountain, and there He sat with His disciples” (v. 3). Even then, the multitude still found Him. However, Jesus often resorted to deserted places or to the mountains. There is something about getting out in creation, especially the mountains that creates a feeling of grandeur within us. Of course, Jesus created the mountains and He no doubt enjoyed everything He created.
Do not miss opportunities to see the glory of God in the things that have been made.
