Scripture Focus: Luke 9:28-36<
The transfiguration of Jesus marks a turning point. We get to see the identity of Jesus in context with Moses and Elijah during a mystical moment, but when this event ends he walks with his disciples down the mountain and into life on the flatlands. They are now walking to Jerusalem and the cross.
Jesus is committed to his purpose of redemption and through all of the days ahead will unfold that purpose before his disciples. He will teach, heal, send his apostles as witnesses of the kingdom, pray, suffer, die and rise. His disciples become prepared for their ministry and their memories will serve as the message of Jesus' love for humankind.
We are disciples of Jesus who walk on the flat lands. It is real life and Jesus wants us to face life with a confident faith. It takes our commitment to grow the strength of our faith. Worship, prayer, scripture reading, Christ-centered relationships, giving and serving are at the heart of building a LIFE worship living. Pursue that LIFE…Love God and show him through your commitment to weekly worship and daily Bible reading and prayer. Impact others through giving and serving. Find time for fellowship and stay engaged to an authentic life.
