“And we heard this voice when it came from heaven while we were with Him on the holy mountain. So we have the prophetic word strongly confirmed. You will do well to pay attention to it, as to a lamp shining in a dismal place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts.” (II Peter 1: 18-19, Holman Christian Standard Bible)
Jesus’ disciples heard the confirmation of the Christ. They saw the Word of God demonstrated in the life of their Master and in his transcendence of death. They experienced a deep awareness of something greater than the worldly view of things.
And they knew that this prophesy, this spiritual sight and insight, should be heeded by all. We are being encouraged here to pay attention to the Christ, to the realization of man as the son of God, and what this means for each of us. We are all God’s children. This Truth of being is not something to wait for or to ignore. It is a light in the darkness. It is a hope that leads us out of despair, limits and lies, and into a brighter reality.
Pay attention to this light, however dim it may appear at times. Take yourself to the mountaintop, the higher perspective, where you can hear and feel the truth of God’s promises, His presence, His peace.
And as we are humbly receptive, the sunlight dawns in our lives and also in our hearts and we can genuinely share its healing warmth and enlightenment with our world as well.
