Read Mark 9:2-9


Read Mark 9:2-9

2 After six days Jesus took Peter, James and John with him and led them up a high mountain, where they were all alone. There he was transfigured before them. 3 His clothes became dazzling white, whiter than anyone in the world could bleach them. 4 And there appeared before them Elijah and Moses, who were talking with Jesus.
5 Peter said to Jesus, “Rabbi, it is good for us to be here. Let us put up three shelters—one for you, one for Moses and one for Elijah.” 6 (He did not know what to say, they were so frightened.)
7 Then a cloud appeared and enveloped them, and a voice came from the cloud: “This is my Son, whom I love. Listen to him!”
8 Suddenly, when they looked around, they no longer saw anyone with them except Jesus.
9 As they were coming down the mountain, Jesus gave them orders not to tell anyone what they had seen until the Son of Man had risen from the dead.


 “This is my Son, whom I love. Listen to him!” - Mark 9:7
When God's voice is heard in the gospels - God points to the Son - with the command: Listen!
We need to be reminded again and again to listen to Jesus and follow his ways.  Even the very voice of God reminds us to listen.


Speak to me Jesus.  Through the gospels, through your Holy Spirit, through your example.  Give me the courage to listen and obey.
