2 Peter 1:12-21
The Eternal Word has leapt from heaven and woven itself into time. It is ready to be stitched into your life’s fabric, stretching you beyond the limits of time, back into eternity, completing the circle.
As you hold your Bible and inwardly hear the Word today, the Holy Spirit is active right now. Peter confesses this, finding the validity of the Word in the Transfiguration experience of Christ, which he witnessed.
What are those life experiences that are the grounding points for your own faith? These are moments of Transfiguration. Yet we are to be as Peter who could not stay on that mountain, but had to rediscover the Word transfigured in the walk down the mountain into the “valley of the shadow of death” upon the cross.
