“There’s another point about the transfiguration that I want you to see,” Stan said.
“And what is that?”
“After God the Father had spoken from the cloud affirming Jesus and telling the disciples to listen to Him, there was no more voice. In addition, Moses and Elijah were not there any longer.”
“Yeah, I remember,” I responded. “Then they went down the mountain.”
“But there was something else before then, and that is what I want both of us to remember.”
“Mark’s account says the disciples looked around and saw only Jesus.”
Stan then went on, “That is what I want my entire life to be, that I look around and see no one but Jesus.”
“I want every single aspect of my being to be so focused on Him that He is all I see.”
“You’re right, Stan,” I said. “There is so much to look at in the world that I can be very easily distracted from what is important. I, too, only want to see Jesus.”
They looked around and saw no one with them any more, except Jesus only. Mark 9:8
Prayer: Lord, I am constantly distracted by all of the things of the world. I know you want me to focus on seeing only Jesus. That, too, is what I want, but I need your constant help in not being distracted by what is not important. Lord, please help me in what I want to see. Amen.
