Jesus has just been on the mountain with Peter, James and John. A bright cloud enveloped them and Jesus glowed with luminescent glory. Moses and Elijah appeared and were talking with Jesus. It was an incredible moment that left the disciples speechless (except Peter of course!).
But we can’t always stay on the mountain top. We still have to face the difficulties and discouragements of life. And the chaos that greets the Lord as He comes down from the mountain, is like a microcosm of the fallen, broken world…
• There’s a Heated Dispute • A suffering child • a desperate father • The Disciples are powerless to help • The Scribes arguing and accusing them aren’t helping either! If they’re so smart, why aren’t they casting the unclean spirit out? Because they can’t –– Only Christ Can!
UPDATE: A medical emergency was brought to our attention during this sermon (as heard in the live audio version) which allowed us to stop and pray for God’s help. This prayer was answered by God abundantly! Praise God for His wonderful blessings!
