BEHOLDING HIS GLORY by Rev Robert (Bob) Smith

11 Feb 2021 by William Tibben in: Soul Food - Inspiration for the Week

For many people, the experience of standing on top of a mountain can be a spiritual experience as well as physical one.

That’s why we have come to use the term ‘mountain top experience’ to describe times of special spiritual blessing - moments of new insight, increased spiritual awareness and heightened joy.

They don’t come often, but when they do we come away, like the Apostle John, saying, ‘We beheld his glory…full of grace and truth.’

It’s almost certain that he was remembering the day when Jesus had taken him and his fellow disciples Peter and James up a high mountain where they saw something no words could express.We call it the Transfiguration of Christ, and in this presentation we celebrate it.
