[During the Transfiguration,] a cloud overshadowed [Jesus, Moses, Elijah, and the three apostles], and a voice from the cloud said, "This is my dearly loved Son. Listen to him."
— Mark 9:7 NLT

Key Thought

God makes himself very clear to the amazed followers of Jesus. As important as Elijah and Moses had been to the Jewish people, among them stood one who is far superior — Jesus Christ, God's Son, and their Lord. They should listen to Jesus. Jesus is the supreme teacher, prophet, and hope for the world. Jesus is God's Messiah for his people and his ultimate message to humankind. They and we must listen to him!

Today's Prayer

Father, thank you for speaking to us fully and definitively through your Son — both while he was on earth and as he continues to provide guidance and strength for us now. In Jesus' name. Amen.
