The Transfiguration of Jesus teaches us that we are the aroma of glory and mercy to others.
We learn to follow Jesus one step at a time
Moses said, “Please show me your glory.”
And he said, “I will make all my goodness pass before you and will proclaim before you my name ‘The Lord.’ And I will be gracious to whom I will be gracious, and will show mercy on whom I will show mercy.
The Lord passed before him and proclaimed, “The Lord, the Lord, a God merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and abounding in steadfast love and faithfulness
And he said to them, “Truly, I say to you, there are some standing here who will not taste death until they see the kingdom of God after it has come with power.” And after six days Jesus took with him Peter and James and John, and led them up a high mountain by themselves. And he was transfigured before them, and his clothes became radiant, intensely white, as no one on earth could bleach them. And there appeared to them Elijah with Moses, and they were talking with Jesus.
Moses and Elijah represent the Law and the Prophets
The transfiguration brings together the glory and mercy of God
Jesus' transfiguration should lead to your transformation
2 Cor. 2:15
For we are the aroma of Christ to God among those who are being saved and among those who are perishing,
Something in all of us wants to stay on the mountain
And Peter said to Jesus, “Rabbi, it is good that we are here. Let us make three tents, one for you and one for Moses and one for Elijah.” For he did not know what to say, for they were terrified. And a cloud overshadowed them, and a voice came out of the cloud, “This is my beloved Son; listen to him.” And suddenly, looking around, they no longer saw anyone with them but Jesus only.
Do everything without complaining or arguing
Jesus is Glory wrapped in Mercy
