Text: Matthew 17-19; Psalm 65
In Matthew 17 we read the story of Jesus’ “transfiguration” where He takes Peter, John and James up a high mountain and His appearance changes. His face shines “like the sun and His clothes became white as light.” The Father speaks, and the disciples are terrified, falling on their faces. In 17:7 we read:
But Jesus came and touched them, saying, “Rise and have no fear.”
Jesus glorified will be a stunning sight. We have just recently studied on a Sunday the scene where every knee bows and every tongue confess Him as Christ and Lord. His words remind us that we will be welcomed into the Kingdom, right with him and before the Father. We will indeed be invited to “have no fear.” Peace and confidence will be ours. I can’t wait!
in Him, Mike
