Daily Devotional

Six days later Jesus took Peter, James, and John, and brought them to the top of a very high mountain where they were alone.  He was transformed in front of them, and his clothes were amazingly bright, brighter than if they had been bleached white.  Elijah and Moses appeared and were talking with Jesus.  Peter reacted to all of this by saying to Jesus, “Rabbi, it’s good that we’re here.  Let’s make three shrines — one for you, one for Moses, and one for Elijah.”  He said this because he didn’t know how to respond, for the three of them were terrified.  Then a cloud overshadowed them, and a voice spoke from the cloud, “This is my Son, whom I dearly love.  Listen to him!”  Suddenly, looking around, they no longer saw anyone with them except Jesus.  As they were coming down the mountain, he ordered them not to tell anyone what they had seen until after the Human One had risen from the dead.

(Mark 9:2-9 CEB)

Shine, Jesus, shine.
Speak, Jesus, speak.
Soar, Jesus, soar.
Let Your glory be seen.
Let Your word be heard.
Let Your sovereignty be known.
May Your will be done in our lives today.  Amen
