Stop worrying about what the world says. Stop worrying about what it thinks it finds. Stop worrying about it’s conclusions. And instead, remember the message of the Transfiguration, this CLIMAX to the season of epiphany, and remember that you bear the name CHRISTIAN. And because you do, you roll with Jesus. You believe what HE says. For his testimony has been validated. And it is validated here, when he is glorified. Now the transfiguration isn’t the ULTIMATE validation of who Jesus is: THAT happens at the resurrection; and he will be ULTIMATELY and UNIVERSALLY validated when he comes again.
