On this second Sunday of Lent our Gospel reading recounts the Transfiguration of Jesus (Mark 9:2-10) when Peter, James and John beheld the glory of the Lord.
Traditionally this took place on Mount Tabor.
As Jesus transfigured in front of them, Peter, James and John “saw His glory.” Their humble teacher was transformed with dazzling, brilliant Light.
The glory of God bestowed with transformative love. “This is My beloved Son…”
“…Thine is the Kingdom, the Power & THE GLORY…” We say it every day in the Lord’s Prayer, but do we think about what it means? Do we ask that all we do be for God’s glory?
This morning Father Glass lightheartedly shared, “I became a priest for the glory.” He quickly added, “For God’s glory!” We chuckled, but then he nailed us with the challenge: are we seeking to give our lives over for the glory of God?
We can be ‘occasions of blessings’ and transformative love for others or we can be harbingers of despair and abdication.
Which way do you think gives glory to God? hmmn.
An old hymn begins, “To God be the glory, great things He has done, so loved He the world that He gave us His Son…”
LOVE!! LOVE!! LOVE!! LOVE!! LOVE!! LOVE!! LOVE!! LOVE!!
grace, peace & transfiguring transformative love
