“Peter said to Jesus, ‘Lord, it is good for us to be here; if You wish, I will make three tabernacles here, one for You, and one for Moses, and one for Elijah’” (Matthew 17:4).
Mountaintop experiences, like the transfiguration event was for the disciples, are important and necessary. They represent times of profound inspiration and influence in our relationship with the Lord. We must never allow them, however, to become an end, in and of themselves. They are but a means to a end. The Christian life must always maintain a proper balance between worship and work; inspiration and perspiration. Mountaintops are meaningful only as they inspire for the work to be found in the valley below.
