All of us at some point in our lives desire to be at the pinnacle of our world, our life, our career, and our family. But the thoughts from the mountaintop can vary.
Those thoughts can be full of gratitude and can be humbling. Or it can be the death of us… Where we find ourselves sacrificing much for greater rewards.

Once you get to the mountaintop, you still want to keep climbing. But to what degree? Who or what are you willing to sacrifice?
This week we have been talking about JOY. It’s a fundamental gift from God. He wants our lives to be filled with joy — real joy. Not joy that’s filled with “stuff”. Only then weill we begin to become the foolish ones.
Joy that celebrates life. A joy that only God can radiate through us — thoughts from the mountaintop.
You can’t do it alone. And I think we try too hard to reach the mountaintop. God want to be there with you.
The most recent example of this was shown by Ben Zobrist and his wife, Julianna. He was named the World Series 2016 MVP. This happened one year after winning the World Series with the Kansas City Royals. Talk about a mountaintop! You can’t get much higher than this. But to Ben and Julianna, you certainly can. Both are Christians and give their lives and what they do for God’s glory.
“Don’t be selfish; don’t try to impress others. Be humble.” Philippians 2:3
You can’t get joy when you’re full of yourself.
Get over yourself. Your identity cannot be based on performance. Your identity has to be in Christ alone. Achievement in your life will tire you, wear at your bones.
Your whole new purpose — your best selfie, is wrapped in Jesus Christ.

“I want all of you to share that joy. Yes, you should rejoice, and I will share in your joy.” ~ Philippians 2:18
