Feast of the Transfiguration of the Lord (YEAR 2013)

Meditation on Today's Scripture:
Today’s gospel tells us that while Jesus was transfigured, Peter, James, and John were asleep! Upon awakening they discovered Jesus in glory along with Moses and Elijah. How much do we miss of God's glory and action since we are asleep spiritually? There are many things which can keep our minds asleep to the things of God: Mental weariness and the "un-examined life" can keep us from thinking things through and facing our doubts and questions. The life of ease can also hinder us from allowing for the challenging or disturbing demands of Christ. Prejudice can make us blind to something new the Lord may have for us. Even sorrow can be a block until we can see past it to the glory of God. Are we morally awake? Peter, James, and John were privileged witnesses of the glory of Christ. We, too, as Disciples of Christ are called to be witnesses of his glory. We all, with unveiled face, beholding the glory of the Lord, are being changed into his likeness from one degree of glory to another; for this comes from the Lord who is the Spirit. The Lord wants to reveal his glory to us, his beloved disciples. Do we seek his presence with faith and reverence?
Word of the Day...
Psalm 119:160 All your words are true; all your righteous laws are eternal.
Prayer ...
Heavenly Father, Righteous and Almighty, may our life reflect your character and nature in compassion, holiness, and justice. We know you are forever and we want to invest our life in what lasts. Give us the wisdom to see through the fleeting temptations of today and to do what honors you beyond our lifetime. In infant Jesus' name we pray. Amen.

Today's Scripture: Luke 9:28-36
28Now about eight days after these sayings he took with him Peter and John and James, and went up on the mountain to pray. 29 And as he was praying, the appearance of his countenance was altered, and his raiment became dazzling white. 30 And behold, two men talked with him, Moses and Eli'jah, 31 who appeared in glory and spoke of his departure, which he was to accomplish at Jerusalem. 32 Now Peter and those who were with him were heavy with sleep, and when they wakened they saw his glory and the two men who stood with him. 33 And as the men were parting from him, Peter said to Jesus, "Master, it is well that we are here; let us make three booths, one for you and one for Moses and one for Eli'jah" not knowing what he said. 34 As he said this, a cloud came and overshadowed them; and they were afraid as they entered the cloud. 35 And a voice came out of the cloud, saying, "This is my Son, my Chosen; listen to him!" 36 And when the voice had spoken, Jesus was found alone. And they kept silence and told no one in those days anything of what they had seen.
