YouVersion.com is a great site for those who are interested in reading Scripture on a daily basis. It also helps to connect you with others who are reading the same Scripture. You can read other’s comments, learn from them and input your own ideas. I love having YouVersion available for spending time with God. I posted this a while back on my YouVersion account. I had read Matthew 17 and was inspired by it. So, check it out and let me know what you think.
“There has just been a lot of good reading on YouVersion. This section of Scripture I am so intrigued by. Second to the post-resurrection appearances, this has to be a time when the disciples see Jesus the most clearly. This has to be a chance for them to see Him for who He really is. When some of the greatest prophets of their entire faith appear, Elijah and Moses, next to Jesus, enveloped by a bright white cloud and Jesus starts shining like the sun (and they didn’t have any Oakley’s to shade the eyes) and the voice of God speaks to them. This is a huge moment in their journey with Jesus Christ.
Is it me or does anyone else want to see Jesus that clearly? Sometimes I want Him to appear to me, shining like the sun, enveloped in a white cloud, maybe standing next to Tom Osborne and Johnny Rodgers. Then just tell me what’s going on. Just lay it on the line for me. “This is who I am, Stan. Get it?” Yep, I got it that time. Show me who You are. Reveal Yourself to me I pray. Show me Your glory. Let me walk and live in the light that You created. Help me to see You as You really are.
I don’t have to see Jesus this way to believe in Him. I just want to experience the fullness of who He is. This seems like a pretty good way to do that. Matthew 17:1-13“
