Hold On To Jesus!
And Peter said to Jesus, “Lord, it is well that we are here; if you wish, I will make three booths here, one for you and one for Moses and one for Elijah.”
Peter is such a normal person! He is who he is! In the Glorious Transfiguration of the Lord Jesus, Peter experienced Heaven. And he wanted to stay there. Of course that would not be possible. He would have to go through some challenging times, and fail too! Yet Peter had the Glorious Transfiguration to recall and get up continue to allow the Divine to shape and mold him into being the great Apostle that he became!
Peter as an example of true discipleship!
Peter is real! When he is scared all of his strength fails him and he denies his Savior. Yet, he comes back and returns and gets back to work for his Savior! The Transfiguration gave him the taste of Heaven that allowed him to get up again!
We can see this as how discipleship is! It is coming back, and beginning again!
We may fall down, but we must get up again! May our transfiguration experiences (those intimate, glorious experiences with the Lord Jesus) give us the grace to return to the Lord, and serve Him!
