And after six days Jesus takes Peter, James, and John his brother, and brings them up into an high mountain apart,…
Where we have communion with God, and complacency in that communion, and of which we are saying, "It is good to be here": even there we have no continuing city. Blessed be God, there is a mountain of glory and joy before us, whence we shall never come down. But observe, when the disciples came down, Jesus came with them. When we return to the world again after an ordinance, it must be our care to take Christ with us, and then it may be our comfort that He is with us.
