This Sunday we are brought to some mountaintop experiences as we come to Transfiguration Sunday. The appointed Old Testament reading is from Exodus 24 that has Moses and others climbing the mountain and then Moses is alone in God's presence.
The description of what is seen is what gives us an aura about the majesty of God. Here are some excerpts from the Exodus 24.....
"Under God's feet there was something like a pavement of sapphire stone, like the very heaven for clearness." Ex. 24:10
"Then Moses went up on the mountain, and the cloud covered the mountain. The glory of the LORD settled on Mt. Sinai, and the cloud covered it for six days; on the seventh day he called to Moses out of the cloud. Now the appearance of God was like a devouring fire." Ex. 24:15-17
What an experience it must have been for Moses with what he saw and then to encounter God!
I wonder if we also capture the majesty of God in our own lives? In other words, how big is your God? Amid the majestic being of God, do you also sense God as being personal to you?
Discipleship Question for Reflection
How might the majesty of God come to you today?
