“As Jesus was praying, the aspect of his face was changed and his clothing became sparkling white” (Luke 9:29).
This Sunday, we will hear again the amazing story of Jesus’ transfiguration, when the Lord appears transformed by radiant light on the mountain before his disciples. Jesus had gone up the mountain with three of his disciples when the transformation happened and they witnessed him standing with Moses and Elijah, two of the great prophets and then God was heard to say about Jesus ‘This is my Son, Listen to him’
Through our prayers this Lent we can hope for wonderful changes too. We can ask God to help us to act differently, to make the world a fairer place, and to treat others as we would wish to be treated.
God asks us to listen to his Son. Do you think you could listen to God and Jesus a bit more this Lent?
How do you think we can best listen to Jesus and ask him for help?
One thing we can do is pray for peace in the world and most importantly at the moment those in Ukraine. I am setting up a section on the Fronter reflection page for peace and would love to see your peace prayers.
Through our actions we can make huge changes that can change the lives of ourselves and others; our transformation can begin today!
God our Father, help us to see your Son in all people and to treat them as we would wish to be treated ourselves. Help us to listen and to live our lives as you ask us to Amen
