Passage: Luke 9:28~36  

Key verse: 35

1. Jesus appears in glorious splendor (28-31)

Jesus wanted to plant the gospel in his disciples, but they could not accept Jesus' words about his suffering and death; they had their own ideas. Jesus took his 3 top disciples up a high mountain to pray. As he was praying, he was transfigured. It was a preview of his resurrection and of his heavenly glory. Moses and Elijah, representing the Law and the Prophets, appeared to confirm that his suffering and death fulfilled God's promises.

2. Listen to him (32-36)

Peter and the others were so sleepy that they almost missed seeing Jesus' glory. But when Peter woke up and saw the glorious scene, he wanted to stay there forever. But this revelation of Jesus' glory was not to make life easy and glorious for the disciples; it was to tell them to listen to Jesus' words and obey him.

Prayer: Lord, help me to hold Jesus' glorious image in my heart and listen to your word.

One Word: Listen to him
