“We Have Seen His Glory”

Sue Thomson - Spiritual Focus Photography

The purpose of the transfiguration of Christ

was so his disciples could gain a greater understanding

of who Jesus Christ was.

They had only known him in His human form,

but now they had a brief encounter

with Jesus in all of His heavenly Glory.

 

When we hear or see things of epic proportion

we often have difficulty truly comprehending them.

The violence that surrounds us…

whether it in the streets of Chicago

or the horrific acts of ISIS.

Then there is the miraculous survival

of a person with just minor scratches

from a grisly auto accident,

or someone who was never to walk again,

now walking.

 

But what remains true, is that

unless we actually witnessed these things

with our own eyes and our 5 senses,

they often remain stories and soon fade away.

 

However, the disciples would never forget what they had personally

witnessed on the mountain top that day!

 

John wrote, ” We have seen his glory,

the glory of the one and only Son,

who came from the Father,

full of grace and truth.” John 1:14

 

Peter wrote,” 16 For we did not FOLLOW cleverly devised stories

when we told you about the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ,

but we were eyewitnesses of his majesty.

17 He received honor and glory from God the Father

when the voice came to him from the Majestic Glory, saying,

“This is my Son, whom I love;

with him I am well pleased.”[a]

18 We ourselves heard this voice

that came from heaven

when we were with Him

on the sacred mountain.”

2 Peter 1:16-18
