Radiant


Matthew 17:2 (NIV)


There He was transfigured before them.


The radiance and resplendent glory of Christ were revealed to the Apostles for the first time when He was transfigured in front of them. The disciples saw the Lord of the universe as He was before He took on the lowly earthly form. Gone was the five feet tall, olive-brown skin man, and before them stood someone like an angel whose face was radiant like the Sun, whose clothes were whiter than bleach. The writers of the gospels were not able to accurately put into words the radiance and glory in front of them. Imagine putting all the stars in the universe together and seeing their combined illumination. The radiance that stood before them surpassed all that brilliance.


We are promised that when we see Him, we will be like Him ( John 3:2). What does Jesus look like now? He looks just like God, Who lives in unapproachable light and Who is pure radiance, power, and brilliance (1 Timothy 6:6). And all the sons of God, which is us, will have to be radiant just like our Father to enter His Presence.


Imagine shining brighter than the Sun, having an incorruptible body that doesn't die, tire, hurt, or degrade (1 Cor 15:35-58). A body that can transcend space and time that is omnipresent can walk on water (Matthew 14:22-36), pass through matter (John 20:19), take on any shape or form, and hide in plain sight (Luke 24:31), and that can sin no more.


Now that's a radiance to look forward to. God bless you all.
