The Transfiguration was one of those special spiritual experiences that are well nigh impossible to describe in words. Jesus had a new and deeper insight into his relationship with his heavenly Father, one that would sustain him through what lay ahead of him. Have there been moments when you have been more than usually aware of God’s love for you. How has this sustained you in difficult times?
