When Jesus took Peter, James, and John up a high mountain, Jesus’ transfiguration took place before them, Matthew 17: 1-6. These three honored men beheld the glory of God. They held the privilege of seeing Jesus as we can all see Him, coming in glory.
Peter was anxious to interrupt the proceedings with a suggestion of building three altars to commemorate the occasion. That is, until God, the Father, asked Peter to close his mouth and listen to His Son, with an exclamation mark for emphasis.
The reason for writing this post came next. When God spoke, the trembling three fell on their faces. What they heard that day was not recorded but what followed tells us something we need to know. Jesus came to them with the message of not to fear. And when they looked up, all they could see was Jesus.
As I experience the glory of Jesus in my life, when I see His glory, there is no more. Nothing else attracts me. I am all His, and He is all mine. As I continually look up, all I see is Jesus.
