Even small glimpses of glory make a big difference

Matthew 17:1-3 ESV
And after six days Jesus took with him Peter and James, and John his brother, and led
them up a high mountain by themselves. 2 And he was transfigured before them, and
his face shone like the sun, and his clothes became white as light. 3 And behold, there
appeared to them Moses and Elijah, talking with him.

Glory pulls us towards God and away from ourselves

Matthew 17:4-6 ESV
4 And Peter said to Jesus, “Lord, it is good that we are here. If you wish, I will make
three tents here, one for you and one for Moses and one for Elijah.” 5 He was still
speaking when, behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them, and a voice from the cloud
said, “This is my beloved Son,[a] with whom I am well pleased; listen to him.” 6 When the
disciples heard this, they fell on their faces and were terrified.

Following Jesus is about more than just mountain tops

Matthew 17:7-9 ESV
7 But Jesus came and touched them, saying, “Rise, and have no fear.” 8 And when they
lifted up their eyes, they saw no one but Jesus only. 9 And as they were coming down
the mountain, Jesus commanded them, “Tell no one the vision, until the Son of Man is
raised from the dead.”
