RISE TO THE TOP
The Scene: A mountain trail rising to the top, representing our Christian walk of faith leading to the “mountain top experience” a life of living for our Lord Jesus Christ our Savior.
The clouds and the three birds; symbols of God’s presence and the Holy Trinity watching over us, and listening to our daily prayers, as we walk the Christian walk.
Sign no. 1 & 2: James 1:2-3 “Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance.”
Sign 3: We grow in Christian maturity as we (daily) walk victoriously through the trials and tests put before us. James 1:4 “Perseverance must finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.”
Sign 4: Purity Bend: Psalm 24:3-4 “Who may ascend the hill of the Lord? Who may stand in his holy place? He who has clean hands and a pure heart, who does not lift up his soul to an idol or swear by what is false.”
Sign 5: Trust Curve: Isaiah 25:9 “In that day they will say, ‘Surely this is our God; we trusted in him, and he saved us. This is the Lord, we trusted in him; let us rejoice and be glad in his salvation.’ ”
Sign 6a: Psalm 37:29 ” The righteous will inherit the land and dwell in it forever.” Sign 6b: Romans 4:13 “It was not through law that Abraham and his offspring received the promise that he would be heir of the world, but through the righteousness that comes by faith.”
Christians who believe as Abraham did are the offspring of Abraham; therefore, they, too, can enjoy the promise of God to Abraham. Abraham believed that God could deliver the promise, “This is ‘why it was credited to him as righteousness.’ ” Romans 4:22
Romans 4:23 “The words ‘it was credited to him’ were written not for him alone, but also for us, to whom God will credit righteousness–for us who believe in him who raised Jesus our Lord from the dead.”
