The Messiah’s Ministry: The Transfiguration

The Messiah’s Ministry: The Transfiguration
Psalm 99:1-9 Matthew 17:1-12

“You,” said the doctor to the patient, “are in terrible shape. You’ve got to do something about it. First, tell your wife to cook more nutritious meals. Stop working like a dog. Also, inform your wife you’re going to make a budget, and she has to stick to it. And have her keep the kids off your back so you can relax. Unless there are some changes like that in your life, you’ll probably be dead in a month.” 
“Doc,” the patient said, “this would sound more official coming from you. Could you please call my wife and give her those instructions?” 
When the fellow got home, his wife rushed to him. “I talked to your doctor,” she wailed. “Poor man, you’ve only got thirty days to live.”

Major Changes Can Frighten Us; Don’t Worry!

* God prepares us for Change
1-8 The Transfiguration

* God has a Reason for Change
9-13 The Explanation

When God is doing His transfiguring work in us, it is for HIS glory, not ours. The reason is so that people will see Jesus at work in us.
