In God We Trust
So here’s the deal. You leave everything — your home, your country, your kin and your claim to your families possessions here — and you go to new country. Are you ready to go? Maybe you have a few questions, like where is the place you’re going, and what will you do when you get there? Don’t worry about where this new place is located, right now. God will show you in God’s good time. As for what you will do in this new land, well here’s the real special part. You will be God’s people, and God will be your God. What’s more, God promises that you will be blessed, and through the new family God will bless you with, the whole world will be blessed by God. So, you will go where God leads and God will bless you and make you great in whatever you do. It’s a promise. Are you ready to go and get packed?
A Lot Going On
Jesus takes Peter, James and John and together they ascend a mountain. At the top, something miraculous happens: the veil that separates heaven and earth is rolled back just for a moment. They see with their own eyes, the glory of God's only Son and the embodied presence of God's law and prophetic witness. They hear God voice speak directly to them, testifying to Jesus' identity and authority. It's a rare moment of frightening clarity. The kind of revelation that we have come to expect to happen to saints ascending mountains.
