Our Weekly Thought - February 5-11, 2018

When Jesus was suddenly transfigured before his friends from his ordinary person into a vision of the Holy Otherness of God, his followers were terrified and did not know what to do or say. When God’s holiness touches physical reality, the manifestation is perceived as blinding light. Just as we turn away from direct sunlight, people turn from pure holiness, recognizing that God is holy; we are not. Still, God comes to us in Christ Jesus, so that we might receive God’s holiness forever.
