Mount Everest

Joshua 23:6"Be very firm, then, to keep and do all that is written in the book of the law of Moses, so that you may not turn aside from it to the right hand or to the left..”

A Nepal government expedition to clean Mount Everest has found 11,000 kilograms of garbage and four corpses, just imagine ! Mount Everest has been in news for the last few days, there was heavy crowd and many died because of the traffic jam on the final ascent to Mount Everest,  more than 100 people were bunched together on the narrow ridge that leads to the summit - a place so high that it is known as the "death zone," where the human body has trouble functioning, due to delay and lack of oxygen many died.  Did you know it cost around 25 to 50 lakh to climb the Everest?  The cost of climbing the Everest starts from the time you start training 12 to 18 months before the actual climb. One cannot climb this peak without being physically and mentally fit. Endurance levels have to be at their peak.

Now why am I talking about climbing Mount Everest and what does that have to do with the above scripture? Listen carefully, the above scripture is the farewell speech of Joshua who succeeded Moses in taking the people of God to the promised land Canaan.  These words are the words of a Warrior, mind it!  Verse 6 starts with caution ‘ Be very firm”, are you listening?  Some other version of the Bible says, ‘be strong’.  Dear Christian, are you serious about your Christian life?  It is 2 am midnight when I am typing this on my laptop, as a family we are spending the entire night in prayer.  My son asked me, “‘ma, why are you typing now, this time is for prayer, I said, ‘ I want to write while I sit in the presence of God.’”  

People spend lakhs of  their hard earned money, train for it, buy personal gears to climb a mountain but look at the children of God who are so careless about their walk with God.  Hey friend, we got to also have passion for God! Are you listening?  6 months have gone this year, what is your accountability of your spiritual life? How much have you read the Bible, how much have you fasted and prayed, how many people have you led to Christ?
