Transfiguration Sunday B


16-20 February

Read Think Pray
Transfiguration Sunday

Monday

Read Psalm 50:1-6

Think

This whole Psalm is worth reading - the first verses invite us to consider the glory of God.  Almighty, surrounded by a fire and a storm.

Pray

Open my mind, my eyes, my ears, my senses to understand your glory.

Tuesday

Read 2 Kings 2:1-12

Think

Elijah was a powerfully anointed prophet.  The stories of his miracles and work are recorded in 1 Kings 17-19, 21 and 2 Kings 1-2.  Elijah calls the people of Israel to renounce Baal and worship Yahweh (the God of Israel).  He points Israel to their God.

Pray

Elijah reminds us that you are God.  Purify our worship; help us to offer our lives to you fully.

Wednesday

Read 2 Corinthians 4:3-6

Think

"The God who said, "Out of darkness the light shall shine!" is the same God who made his light shine in our hearts, to bring us the knowledge of God's glory shining in the face of Christ." (Verse 6)

Pray

Lord help me to understand that you are perfectly revealed in Jesus Christ.

Thursday

Read Mark 9:2-9

Think

Moses and Elijah are talking with Jesus.  Seeing this sight confirms that Jesus is who he says he is.  Moses is the first prophet who points Israel so clearly to God; Elijah calls them to see God clearly.  In this conversation it seems that the two approve Jesus.
Finally - the voice from heaven confirms:
"This is my Son."

Pray

When I understand that you are God, and that you love me, I have the power to live out my calling in the world.

Friday

Read Mark 1:9-15

Think

Jesus was tempted in the wilderness but he triumphed.

Pray

Lead me not into temptation, but deliver me from evil.
