The Importance Of A Vision
February 23, 2020
Revised Standard Version
17 And after six days Jesus took with him Peter and James and John his brother, and led them up a high mountain apart. 2 And he was transfigured before them, and his face shone like the sun, and his garments became white as light. 3 And behold, there appeared to them Moses and Eli′jah, talking with him. 4 And Peter said to Jesus, “Lord, it is well that we are here; if you wish, I will make three booths here, one for you and one for Moses and one for Eli′jah.” 5 He was still speaking, when lo, a bright cloud overshadowed them, and a voice from the cloud said, “This is my beloved Son,[a] with whom I am well pleased; listen to him.” 6 When the disciples heard this, they fell on their faces, and were filled with awe. 7 But Jesus came and touched them, saying, “Rise, and have no fear.” 8 And when they lifted up their eyes, they saw no one but Jesus only.
9 And as they were coming down the mountain, Jesus commanded them, “Tell no one the vision, until the Son of man is raised from the dead.”
Paul Horne says
So sorry we missed being at this service. Debby had a terrible migraine (I don’t know why I said terrible, a migraine can be no less than terrible.) Your sermon was spot on, diversity is God’s plan and being comfortable in our own skin is very important to our own sanity and sanctity. I haven’t realized that long enough myself. But I am finally comfortable in my own skin! Thanks be to God. Thank you and God bless you!
