DAILY READINGS: 1 Kings 19; Jeremiah 31; Hebrews 2
Then answered Peter, and said unto Jesus, Lord, it is good for us to be here...While he yet spake, behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them: and behold a voice out of the cloud, which said, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased; hear ye him. Matt:17:4-5
Peter stood in the brilliance of the glory of God in Christ. He spoke of the awe of the moment and expressed a desire to build three tabernacles for the men he saw standing there. God the Father dispelled all other focus save His beloved Son. We must be careful not to interpret every Bible passage as being about us and what we must do. Instead of focusing on ourselves, let us read God’s Word listening carefully to what the Scriptures say of Him. —Jared Fraser
More about Jesus let me learn, more of His holy will discern:
Spirit of God, my teacher be, showing the things of Christ to me.—E. Hewitt
