Why was Jesus transformed, and why was this event recorded for others to read later. It was to let you see, not only Jesus in a whole new light, but to see yourself in a whole new light. Do you want to know something about what Heaven will be like? Take a look at Jesus that day on the mountain. Your life, this life, is what God is using to prepare you for what is to come. See yourself in that new light of Christ Jesus our Lord. See yourself as a loved child of God whom He will, in His time, call to that glorious home.
