Today we celebrate the Great Feast of the Transfiguration of the Lord, which is recorded in the Gospel of Matthew 17:1-9. This feastday shows us that Christ is God, and possesses the Divine Glory.
According to scripture, the Divine Glory is an uncreated light in which God eternally dwells, a majestic radiance which transcends all earthly things, yet shows itself at significant moments when God chooses special persons to fulfill His purposes.
This Feastday serves as an encouragement to the faith of the disciples and lastly this Feastday anticipates the Resurrection of Christ. The same Divine Light that radiated from the transfigured Jesus pierced as lightening the darkness of hell and gave new life to the world.
It is important for us to know that each believer inwardly bears a reflection of this Glory of Christ, “as a spiritual treasure in clay pots”. All of us then reflect the glory of the Lord… “and that same glory, coming from the Lord, who is the Spirit, transforms us into His likeness in an ever greater degree of Glory”. (2 Cor. 3:18)
May God bless you all on this Great Feast of the Church when we bless the fruits of the summer harvest.
