Mark 9:2-3 – The God Man

S – Mark 9:2-3 “…Jesus took Peter, James, and John, and led them up a high mountain to be alone. As the men watched, Jesus’ appearance was transformed, and His clothes became dazzling white, far whiter than any earthly bleach could ever make them.”

O – Jesus was not just a man. He was completely God and completely man (Phil 2:6-7). The disciples got to see glimpses of both.  Here, they see Christ transformed (metamorphosed).

A – Jesus was the perfect (God) sacrifice (man).  Today, I want to make a point to consciously worship Him (God) and follow His example (man).  Specifically, I’m seeking a chance to humble myself to serve someone else – like He did for us (God becoming man).

P – Lord, keep me from seeing and responding to only one side of our Savior and King.  Help me to immitate His humility.

Does the appearance of Christ need to be “transformed” in your life?
