Matthew 17:1-2 ~ The Purpose for the Transfiguration of Christ
"You can't have suffering and you can't have the surrendering of your life to Christ without knowing that in the future there is going to be glory, and there is going to be transformation. These two chapters together present the proper perspective of life. Most of the time our perspective is incomplete; we only see the human, the suffering, the hardship, the difficulty. It is very important that we see both the human and the spiritual."
