To understand Mark 9:2-32 and story of the transfiguration of Jesus, you need to accept that the world is not concrete be open to the supernatural powers of God.
This week at Imprint Church in Woodinville, we heard a great sermon by Penn Cook on the transfiguration of Jesus in Mark 9:2-32. In this story, God displays his splendor to Peter, James, and John as they climb high up on the mountain with Jesus.
The key points in this sermon on the transfiguration were:
- We have a chance to see God’s glory in our own lives.
- When we see His glory, we have an obligation to share it with others.
Look for that place in your own life where God has revealed his glory and be sure to tell others all about it!
