Six days later, Jesus took with him Peter and James and John, and led them up a high mountain apart, by themselves. And he was transfigured before them, and his clothes became dazzling white, such as no one on earth could bleach them. And there appeared to them Elijah with Moses, who were talking with Jesus. Then Peter said to Jesus, “Rabbi, it is good for us to be here; let us make three dwellings, one for you, one for Moses, and one for Elijah.” He did not know what to say, for they were terrified. Then a cloud overshadowed them, and from the cloud there came a voice, “This is my Son, the Beloved; listen to him!” Suddenly when they looked around, they saw no one with them any more, but only Jesus. As they were coming down the mountain, he ordered them to tell no one about what they had seen, until after the Son of Man had risen from the dead.
Food For Thought:
In this passage of Scripture, I think about how cool it must have been for Peter, James and John to stand in the presence of God. They were standing on holy ground. Where are some places that you have felt that you were standing on holy ground? What did that feel like?
Holy God, we thank you for your faithful presence in our lives. Guide us to see those holy moments in our lives. Help us to be your loving servants in this world. In your sacred and precious name we pray, Amen.
