“And he was transfigured before them, and his face shone like the sun, and his clothes became white as light.” Matthew 17:2
Who doesn’t desire to have a “mountain top” experience with Jesus? He will grant such an time with Him as He wills. We must be aware that we live in a day in which the pursuit of the “mountain top” is far too consuming. Many children of God even have the idea that anything short of the “mountain top” equals a falling short and failing in their relationship with God. Yet, Christ is most often found in the ordinary of life. In a world of superlatives, we cannot lose sight of knowing Jesus while doing laundry, fixing a leaking faucet, teaching our children, balancing the check book, or any such commonplace task that marks ordinary people. Christ wants to be found in the everyday distractions and practices of life rather than a relentless pursuit of the awesome, the trend-setting, the ground breaking, the marvelous, and magnificent.
- Jesus, help me to find You in the ordinary. Help me to resist the temptation that unless my life is used to change the world I have somehow failed. Let me find you in my daily routine of the life you have called me to fulfill.
