As I read again the account of Peter, James and John on the mountain with Jesus when His glory was revealed, I am in awe (Luke 9:28-36). This event left a lasting impression on these men. “The appearance of His face was altered and His clothing became dazzling white” (29). Those familiar with this passage remember that Moses and Elijah appear with Jesus, talking to Him.
What follows is both sleepy disciples and then an untimely suggestion by Peter to “make three tents, one for You, and one for Moses and one for Elijah – not knowing what he said” (33). We could all say a lot about how out-of-touch Peter was with the moment, but what I want us to get to is the way this situation was corrected.
“And a voice came out of the cloud, saying, “This is my Son, my Chosen One; listen to him!” And when the voice had spoken, Jesus was found alone. And they kept silent and told no one in those days anything of what they had seen” (35-36). This is a ‘heavenly adjustment’!
In these days there is a multitude of voices, even some with good thoughts, but if we are not careful, we will become fixated on them and not the Lord. When this happens, we need the voice of God to interrupt our thinking and refocus our attention on what really matters – JESUS!
It is time for all of us to be “found alone” with Him! What really matters is not what everyone is saying about current issues, but what God is saying about His Son and His glory. This will change your words and actions. It will also change your impact on the world.
