Daily Fountain Devotional 6 August 2022 MESSAGE
The passage today reminds us of the transfiguration of our Lord Jesus Christ. The event included the visit of Moses and Elijah, as well as the voice of confirmation of the sonship and messianic personality of Jesus.
The presence of these two great men of God was not just without a reason; they engaged in a heart-to-heart discussion with Jesus about His departure. On the contrary, Peter suggested to build three tents and to live there thenceforth.
For Peter, it was a beautiful experience and a beautiful place to live (Luke 9:33) but for Jesus, Moses and Elijah, Jesus must be prepared to conclude His salvation and reconciliation assignment and translate to the eternal kingdom where He lives and reigns forever.
The kingdom Christ revealed to us and calls us to is not of the world but eternal with God. Our continuous concentration on the beauty, conveniences and enjoyment of the world will only keep us updated with the world but at a distance with eternal life. Christ, from this passage, was already prepared to leave the world for His kingdom.
It is demanded of us, if we are His true children, to keep our minds more concentrated on heavenly things (Colossians 3:1-4). The world we live in today is gradually ceasing to be interesting and conducive.
The END is surely at hand. Happenings around the world appear scarier daily. We must not think like Peter on the mount of transfiguration – finding comfort in things in the existing world, but daily prepare to join Christ in His eternal kingdom where we are sure of eternal peace and comfort.
PRAYER: Though the world presents beautifully adoring things, yet the end is ruin (2 Peter 3:9-10).
