They Came Down From the Mountain

When I was on half dome last week in Yosemite, it was easy to look around, and see the glory of God’s creation. There are few things more awe inspiring than sitting on top of a mountain peak like that and seeing for miles in every direction. It was just amazing and glorious. For Christians, such earthly glory should draw us to consider God as our mighty creator. In our passage for today, Peter, James, and John saw an even greater glory on top of a mountain more than anything Yosemite has to offer. For they saw the transfigured glory of Christ, not only as the creator, but also as the one who would be our savior!
