God looks at you this morning as His beloved ones, chosen to serve Him before the foundation of the world. This is a noble task; one we must embrace with great joy, but also with a profound sense of responsibility for we are serving the Lord of Light.
The Transfiguration urges us to live the good news in the valley and to taste of the dazzling glory of Jesus when we gather together. Indeed, worship is heavenly because it is in the heavenly places, and there we get a glimpse of why Peter so desperately wanted to stay. But we can’t stay, because Jesus urges us to live out our worship in all that we do.
This morning we partake of the body and blood of our blessed Lord, so that we may hunger more and more for that place of wonder and delight where clothes turn dazzling white and where faces are changed.
