Mountain of the Lord
Once a soul has come to understand something of the indescribable majesty of the holiness of God, the question asked in Psalm 15 suddenly weighs upon his heart: “Who shall ascend the mountain of the LORD?” That is, who can draw near to this living God in worship? Who can climb their way to the summit of his dwelling place and gaze upon his beauty?
Yet, take heart the people of the New Covenant for our Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of God takes us to the mountains of the Beatitudes, Transfiguration and Assumption in order to unite us with the Father: ““I ask not only on behalf of these (apostles), but also on behalf of those who will believe in me through their word, that they may all be one. As you, Father, are in me and I am in you, may they also be in us.” John 17:21
