For we did not follow cleverly devised myths when we made known to you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but we had been eyewitnesses of his majesty. For he received honor and glory from God the Father when that voice was conveyed to him by the Majestic Glory, saying, “This is my Son, my Beloved, with whom I am well pleased.” We ourselves heard this voice come from heaven, while we were with him on the holy mountain. So we have the prophetic message more fully confirmed. You will do well to be attentive to this as to a lamp shining in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts. First of all you must understand this, that no prophecy of scripture is a matter of one’s own interpretation, because no prophecy ever came by human will, but men and women moved by the Holy Spirit spoke from God. (2 Peter 1:16-21, NRSV)
Peter is telling those who are listening, this is not a story. This isn’t something we heard and are telling you. It isn’t mere gossip.
We saw all of this with our own eyes! It is true! All of it.
That is the message we share. The message of one who shines brighter than the sun and lights our world!
Are you ready to be cross-eyed and focused on the one who can save the world!
