God does everything for a reason. There is a purpose to every moment in salvation history. The Transfiguration of the Lord was not just for Peter, James, and John.
The Transfiguration gives a broader and deeper context to the reality of suffering; greater glory always awaits those who believe.
Dear Jesus, may I be empowered by the vision of Your presence. When I encounter You in hope, may my despair be lifted. When I suffer, may I lean in on Your promise of future glory.
