Matthew 17





Today we see Jesus taking 3 of His disciples - Peter, James, and John - on a side excursion

up on a mountain

Scripture says He was transfigured before them. His face shone like the sun and His

clothes were as white as light. Then, suddenly, He was talking with Moses and Elijah.

While they were talking, a bright cloud covered them and a voice came from the

cloud and said, “This is my son whom I love, with Him I am well pleased. LISTEN

To Him!”

What spoke to me was that these 3 disciples had been following Jesus and had

seen Him preach and do all the miracles, including raising the dead, and yet God

gave them even more evidence and encouragement that Jesus Christ was His

Son and the Savior.

God spoke the same words that He had said at Jesus' baptism and then said,

Hey! Listen to HIM! Then he showed them Jesus in his glorified body-

Showed them proof of eternal life. Showed them the fulfillment of prophesies and

to top it off---GOD spoke directly to them!!

God said, GUYS, I am real and powerful and Jesus is my son—He is the Messiah!

God constantly cares for us and shows us and reminds us of his power and his love

for us.

I think I understand why Jesus said how long shall I put up with you. Even after hearing from God himself. How could there be any doubt?Would I be any better “I think NOT” Thank you for reminding me about the care & love Jesus has for us even with all are weaknesses.
