Matt Redman: Let My Words Be Few

When Jesus Christ was transfigured before Peter, James and John, they saw the glorious divinity of the God-Man.

Peter (so lovably like us!) stammered a suggestion:  “Lord, it’s good that we are here.  Let’s build three tabernacles!  One for you, one for Moses, and one for Elijah!”

Then a “bright cloud” overcame them and they heard, “This is my beloved Son, with whom I am well pleased. Listen to him.”

Jesus came to them, touched them, and said, “Do not be afraid.” (Matthew 17:1-9)

How good it is to silently contemplate the incomprehensible Beloved Son.  Let us learn to listen to Him.
