Higher Ground: June Pursuit Transition

How should we view our transition from one pursuit to another? May these verses and the included short podcast encourage you!

Brothers, I do not account of myself to have laid hold; but one thing I do: Forgetting the things which are behind and stretching forward to the things which are before, I pursue toward the goal for the prize to which God in Christ Jesus has called me upward. – Philippians 3:13-14

… And exercise yourself unto godliness. For bodily exercise is profitable for a little, but godliness is profitable for all things – 1 Timothy 4:7-8

If you haven’t done so, we encourage you to sign-up for the June Pursuit!

Higher Ground: Inoculation

As we come to our dear Lord Jesus, again and again, we are learning to hear Him. In Luke 9:35 God commands us to do just that. Hear Him.

Please read these weighty verses from the gospel of Luke and then listen to the 12 minute inoculation podcast that follows.


6:22 Blessed are you when men hate you and when they separate you from them and reproach you and cast out your name as evil, for the Son of Man’s sake.

Definition of REPROACH: address (someone) in such a way as to express disapproval or disappointment.

9:28 And about eight days after these words, He took with Him Peter and John and James, and went up into the mountain to pray.

9:29 And as He prayed, the appearance of His face became different, and His garment dazzling white.

9:30 And behold, two men were conversing with Him, who were Moses and Elijah,

9:31 Who appeared in glory and spoke of His departure, which He was about to complete in Jerusalem.

9:32 Now Peter and those with him had been overcome with sleep, but when they had fully woken up, they saw His glory and the two men who were standing with Him.

9:33 And as they were departing from Him, Peter said to Jesus, Master, it is good for us to be here; and let us make three tents, one for You and one for Moses and one for Elijah — not knowing what he was saying.

9:34 And while he said these things, a cloud appeared and overshadowed them; and they became frightened as they entered into the cloud.

9:35 And a voice came out of the cloud, saying, This is My Son, the Chosen One. Hear Him!

9:36 And when the voice had spoken, Jesus was found alone. And they kept silent and reported to no one in those days anything of what they had seen.
