    Do you have nail JAEL with a cartoon on your diary or something? Just when I give up on something you throw a post addressing the distress at hand! If I didn’t know better I’d think you were working for someone higher….

    Ooosh, was that appropriate when I read it last night! I know He only sends me stuff He knows I can deal with but I’m never sure of that until I come out the other side. Unless He’s training me in turning to Him for all things and I’m being particularly pants at heeding my lessons? :o)

    John 10:10 – I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.

    I’ve just Googled this and put myselg right! :-)

    Let’s take a look at the word “life”. In the Greek it is “Zoe” referring to the principle of life in the spirit and soul. Distinguished from “bios”, which refers to duration, means, and manner of life.

    So we find that the life (zoe) that Jesus referred to are the things of the spirit, the things which are not seen. Not the things of the flesh or of the world which are seen.

    Jesus here is talking about eternal life, not about having good things on this earth.

    good to be reminded….why am i always surprised?

  10. Ros says:

    Peaks and troughs, isn’t it?! Reminds me about what my deceased mother said on returning from Spring Harvest ten years ago, “it’s coming down from the mountain with Jesus.”

  11. Ben says:

    Sounds a bit dualistic Goodfield. Has not the eternal life already started?

  12. goodfield says:

    Don’t ask me I just got that by Googleing ‘Abundant Life’! :-)

  13. Ben says:

    Ahhh – the woes of google theology. My greek dictionary puts it:

    ζωή,n \{dzo-ay’}
    1) life 1a) the state of one who is possessed of vitality or is animate 1b) every living soul 2) life 2a) of the absolute fulness of life, both essential and ethical, which belongs to God, and through him both to the hypostatic “logos” and to Christ in whom the “logos” put on human nature 2b) life real and genuine, a life active and vigorous, devoted to God, blessed, in the portion even in this world of those who put their trust in Christ, but after the resurrection to be consummated by new accessions (among them a more perfect body), and to last for ever.

    It’s a narrow way! but persevere their are some glorious views – and some shit holes – on the way.

    Also always worth remembering that mountain top visions can only be realised by coming down off the mountian!

  15. Caroline TOO says:

    Unfortunately, the mountain tops are to be privatised as part of the ‘big society’… local owners who know best how to use these mountain tops will be given the freedom to earn oodles of money for franchising access to mountain tops. As everyone knows private ownership will lead to increased efficiency in mountain top experiences and govt. regulations will ensure opportunities abound of the most talented* people get to keep the mountain top experiences for themselves.

    * We would like to emphasise that by ‘talented’ we don’t mean privileged or wealthy (much).

    i wonder what is more precious – the destination in the fact i have arrived at the mountaintop or the journey to get to it.
