Then a cloud appeared and covered them, and a voice came from the cloud: "This is my Son, whom I love. Listen to him!"
The transfiguration is an event I never really had thought much about. This morning I read some commentary and explanation of the importance of this event. By showing Jesus' deity to the disciples, they might be encouraged and their faith strengthened, in order to do the work that was before them. But in God's own audible words to them, they must "listen to him." They must listen, and take in every moment and every word Jesus would share with them. This was their path to knowing Jesus. So beautiful and powerful.
Lord, I thank you for bringing me to you. I am sorry when I let you down. Help me to be a better listener. Amen
