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. – Mark 9:2-3 (ESV)

The story of the transfiguration is like a movie trailer. A trailer takes all the best parts of a movie, runs them all together and adds music. The idea is to get you to buy into the movie, get excited and go watch it. When they’re showing the trailers before a movie and you see a good one, what do you lean over to your friend and say? “Hey, let’s go see that movie!” That’s the purpose for the trailer. That is what Jesus was doing in the transfiguration. You might say, “That’s great, but what will help us here on earth in our walk with God?” The transfiguration can still affect you today. Peter was overwhelmed by the glory of God at the transfiguration. We, too, can be overwhelmed and in awe of the glory of God. Actually, it’s vital to our growth in faith to experience and see the glory of God. When we experience His glory we are changed more and more into the image of God’s Son. So how do we get ourselves in awe of the glory of God? That’s what we’re going to dig into this Sunday. We’re going to see how we can be in awe of God in our day-to-day life. I hope you can join us Sunday, 11am at Hyatt Place Hotel, as we continue this message series called, “What It Really Looks Like to Have a Relationship with Jesus.”
