As Christians, circumstances can seem discouraging at times. We feel like our world is crumbling around us. We wonder how much more pain and suffering we have to endure. There are great sacrifices involved in following Christ. Sometimes we wonder if it’s really worthwhile.
Jesus knew there would be times like that in our lives. So He gave us a great promise to remember – and backed it up with a guarantee. He said there’s coming a day when He will return in full glory and we’ll have eternal blessing and joy.
What was the guarantee? At a time when the disciples were discouraged, our Lord took three of them up a mountain and revealed His future heavenly glory to them. That was proof He could fulfill His promise to return in the future.
That great event is now known as the transfiguration. In the series Christ Displays His Glory, John MacArthur examines the fascinating details of what happened and why. Discover how to have a heavenly perspective in the midst of earthly pain. It will help you overcome the frustration of living in an ungodly world!
