And religion does make your life rich, by making you content with what you have. So we should be satisfied just to have food and clothes. (1 TIMOTHY 6:6, 8 CEV)
please go read this book!!! it altered my life for the better in a big way. it really gave me a new perspective on how i live and how i should be living. it gives me so much hope for the future with God’s word on our side.
Matthew 17:20 “‘You don’t have enough faith’ Jesus told them. I tell you the truth, if you had faith as small as a mustard seed, you could say to this mountain ‘move from here to there’ and it would move. Nothing would be impossible.” The mountain represents who you would think is hard to “move”/get through to.
2 Peter 1:18 “We ourselves heard that voice from heaven when we were with him on the holy mountain.”
In this verse Jesus was on a mountain when he and his disciples heard the voice of heaven. Him being on the mountain, in our terms, is like him hanging out with the rejects, the rebels, the ones who don’t know God, when, in fact, God spoke to Him. We as Christians need to spend more time with the people who are a little harder to get through to, people who you need some faith to “move”. We are just way too comfortable going to Sunday school once a week. We have to branch out and connect with those who are mountains that need to be moved.
