Key Thought

God is very clear to the amazed followers of Jesus. As important as Elijah and Moses are to the Jewish people, among them stands one who is far superior—Jesus Christ, his Son and their Lord. They should listen to Jesus. Jesus is the supreme teacher. Jesus is the supreme prophet. Jesus is the supreme hope and Messiah of God's people. 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.
