This coming Sunday is Gospel Sunday. It is a good time to invite your relative, friends, co-workers, neighbors who might have questions about Jesus and Christianity. If you know anybody in whose heart God is working then pray for them and invite them to this coming service. It will be at our regular start time (9:30am) in the sanctuary.
We will be looking at the transfiguration…
1 After six days Jesus took with him Peter, James and John the brother of James, and led them up a high mountain by themselves. 2 There he was transfigured before them. His face shone like the sun, and his clothes became as white as the light. 3 Just then there appeared before them Moses and Elijah, talking with Jesus.
4 Peter said to Jesus, “Lord, it is good for us to be here. If you wish, I will put up three shelters—one for you, one for Moses and one for Elijah.”
5 While he was still speaking, a bright cloud covered them, and a voice from the cloud said, “This is my Son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased. Listen to him!”
Who was Jesus?
What is His transfiguration? And what was the meaning of it?
Why should we listen to Him?
What does he have to tell us?
These are all legitimate questions that arise after reading Matthew 17:1-5. Maybe some of these questions are on your relatives, friends, co-worker, neighbors' mind? As we try to make sense of this supernatural event this morning hopefully God will reveal to us how this event speaks into their lives and ours.
