Friendly Reminder (Matthew 17:1-8)Rene' Lawson, February 23, 2020
Part of the Sunday Sermons series, preached at a Midweek Meeting service
At Jesus’ baptism, God announced that he was well pleased with his son. This statement was like an endorsement of Christ’s majesty. In our lesson today, God is asking his people to “listen to him” in reference to Jesus. It appears that the people may have welcome the endorsement of Jesus but decided to not listen to him or his teachings. We need a friendly reminder of the significance of Christ in our midst.

1And after six days Jesus taketh Peter, James, and John his brother, and bringeth them up into an high mountain apart, 2And was transfigured before them: and his face did shine as the sun, and his raiment was white as the light. 3And, behold, there appeared unto them Moses and Elias talking with him. 4Then answered Peter, and said unto Jesus, Lord, it is good for us to be here: if thou wilt, let us make here three tabernacles; one for thee, and one for Moses, and one for Elias. 5While he yet spake, behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them: and behold a voice out of the cloud, which said, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased; hear ye him. 6And when the disciples heard it, they fell on their face, and were sore afraid. 7And Jesus came and touched them, and said, Arise, and be not afraid. 8And when they had lifted up their eyes, they saw no man, save Jesus only. (KJV)
