Therefore let us be grateful for receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, and thus let us offer to God acceptable worship, with reverence and awe, for our God is a consuming fire. - Hebrews 12:28-29 (ESV) I once heard a guy theorize that Disneyland is meant to be a very spiritual place. It wasn’t because it contained characters with fanciful stories or because it had retold tales that shaped children’s experiences. No, it was because it has a bunch of mountains. There is Splash Mountain and Space Mountain and Thunder Mountain and the Matterhorn. His theory was that mountains in the course of human history are spiritual places where profound things happen and are revealed. I’m not sure what profound and revelatory thing is happening on top of Space Mountain, so I take his 'spiritual Disney theory' with a grain of salt. Scripture does however, record some very profound things that happen atop mountains. In fact, in our text this week, the writer of the book of Hebrews wants us to identify which mountain we come from - Sinai or Zion. He does this because he knows that when we realize the difference, it will profoundly shape how we respond to God’s voice and the crush of our present circumstances. I want to encourage you take a few minutes to read through Hebrews 12:18-29. Then consider the differences of these two major mountains in scripture. Then plan to join us online or in person at 10am on Sunday. It will be a great time to encourage each other and worship our awesome God together. And why not invite someone to join you!
