The disciples have witnessed Jesus transfigured with ancient prophets, and triumphing over a malicious demon, all in the space of two days. But what are they to make of it all? More importantly, knowing who Jesus is, how does that change how we see the world?

TALK: Consider some of these ideas:
Now about eight days after these sayings Jesus took with him Peter and John and James, and went up on the mountain to pray. And while he was praying, the appearance of his face changed, and his clothes became dazzling white. Luke 9:28-29
Life with Jesus may be confusing at times, but never boring. Peter and friends have witnessed Jesus transfigured with ancient prophets, and triumphing over a malicious demon, all in the space of two days. Jesus can reveal himself to us in ways we can’t yet understand, but maybe one day we will.
- How does Jesus describe greatness?
- Who are your community’s greatest leaders, past or present? How have they shaped your community? How might you become a leader in your community today?
- How has God revealed truths about Jesus to you? (Scripture, people, worship, media?) How might you be intentional about giving time to those things that reveal Jesus to you this week?
PRAY: Transfigured Lord, You have transformed all things through the vision of an earth restored. Make us willing participants in your work to reconcile all things again to you, in Jesus’ holy name, Amen.
BLESS: Notice and be warmed by the light of Christ. Amen.
