Changed To Be Like Jesus

Six days later Jesus took Peter and the brothers James and John with him. They went up on a very high mountain where they could be alone.  There in front of the disciples, Jesus was completely changed. His face was shining like the sun, and his clothes became white as light.  All at once Moses and Elijah were there talking with Jesus.  So Peter said to him, "Lord, it is good for us to be here! Let us make three shelters, one for you, one for Moses, and one for Elijah."  While Peter was still speaking, the shadow of a bright cloud passed over them. From the cloud a voice said, "This is my own dear Son, and I am pleased with him. Listen to what he says!"

Matthew 17:1-5

Jesus, the Son of God Almighty was perfect in every way.  He was changed in the way the disciples saw Him, but not in who He was!  The “Transfiguration,” as it is sometimes called, simply revealed the Glorious nature of Jesus to Peter James and John.

As followers of Jesus we too are changed, but not just in the way we appear.  We are changed from fallen, lost and hopless men and women into “Spirit Filled Children of God.”  And, oh yes, the difference can be seen by those around us!  

The change in your life is not because of all the good things you now do.  The good things you do are the result of that change.  Because of the Holy Spirit living in your heart the world will see that you are a different person!

“Lord Jesus, may Your Love and the Holy Spirit rule in my heart so that the world may see the change that You are making in me today!  Praise Your Holy Name now and forever.  Amen.”
