Earlier in March we were thinking about the Transfguration of Jesus (Luke 9:28-36) in our services. We were thinking that it was not so much that Jesus was transformed but more that he revealed to Peter, James and John who he really was and the glory of God from which he came to us. We also had read Exodus 34: 29-35 – the story of Moses going up Mount Sinai to receive the law from the Lord and how, when he came down from being in God’s presence, the glory of God shone brightly on his face that it was too bright for the people to look at and he had to wear a veil. I thought a lot about the glory of God shining in us so brightly that people around us would see it and be prompted to search for God for themselves.
As we pray for All Saints, for our life together and our witness, let’s pray that as individuals and as a church, we are more and more transformed into the likeness of Jesus and that his glory will shine forth from us in ways more powerful than we can imagine.
