“This is my beloved Son. Listen to him.” Suddenly, looking around, they no longer saw anyone but Jesus alone with them.”
Every day of our lives we are called to have a real life encounter with the living God, just like the disciples on the mountain. When we experience the love of God in such a profound way as this, we begin to realize that there is no force in the world more powerful then His love. We start to grab a hold of what this life is all about. It becomes a challenge to contain the peace and joy that consume our souls. We recognize that there is no limit to God’s love, and naturally start to reveal His truth and faithfulness through our words and actions.
During this Lenten season God desires to transfigure us into the children he has called us to be. He invites us each day to meet with him and experience an intimate and genuine love. He reminds us that we were created in His image, made to be good and holy disciples. He speaks to our hearts and whispers in our ear. He utters words of encouragement telling us that we are worthy of his grace. Ultimately, we are all destined to live in His light and shine God’s glory.
