From the Pastor...
This morning during my devotion time I was reminded of the transfiguration of Jesus after He led Peter, James, and John up to a high mountain in Matthew 17. It was there that Jesus was transfigured and the three disciples saw the glory of God as Jesus face shined like the sun and his clothes were as white the light. It was during this that Moses and Elijah also appeared with Jesus talking to him as the three disciples witnessed this powerful and magnificent display of the glory of God.
Can you imagine what it must have been like to have been there with the disciples at the transfiguration? Peter responded to what he was witnessing by suggesting that three tabernacles be made so that they could worship Jesus, Moses, and Elijah. It’s easy to be critical of Peter but Mark’s gospel explained that it was fear that led Peter to suggest worshipping all 3 (Mark 9:6). While Peter was speaking a bright cloud covered them and a voice from the cloud said, “This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased; hear ye him” (Matthew 17:5). When Peter, James, and John heard this they fell to the ground in fear and reverence which led Jesus to tell them to get up and to not be afraid.
What really spoke to me this morning was the fact that after Jesus told his three disciples to get up, they only saw Jesus. I can’t tell you LFBC how I’m praying for that every week for our church that we’ll only see Jesus! I know that Pastor’s, church staff, teachers, and leaders want to do great things for the Lord, but if man becomes the focus then we’re missing it! We need Jesus, and Jesus is enough! I ask you to join me in praying that Jesus would be what we see here at LFBC because He alone is worthy. Pray with me that we’ll encounter the living God through His power. I believe that when Jesus is all we see it will impact us and change us by the power of God for His glory and our good. We’ll never be the same again!
Love in Christ,
“And when they had lifted up their eyes, they saw no man, save Jesus only” (Matthew 17:8)
