Today is Transfiguration Sunday! As we ascend to the mountaintop with Christ’s beloved disciples, we too will see His glory revealed and hear the voice of God say, “This is my Son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased. Listen to him!” The disciples soon learn that to listen to Jesus is to follow where He leads. The place where He leads is back down the mountain into a sin-filled world that desperately needs God’s mercy and grace. This too is our calling. We live as exiles in this world, but we live by faith. Christ leads and we follow. By grace, He calls us into His mission of making disciples of all nations.
