We end the Season of Epiphany recounting a most amazing moment in Jesus' earthly ministry. He is revealed in Glory. He is transfigured before Peter, James, and John. The disciples were unprepared for the moment and tried to respond. Should they have been ready? Would we, even knowing it happened, be ready for such an experience? I hope so but expect not. I have been caught unawares by the amazing activity of God in my life. These moments delight, surprise, and humble me. They are humbling precisely because they reveal the Glory of God and the Lordship of Jesus Christ. They are powerful reminders that my faith is not about me or my desires but about Jesus. How easy it is to think of our faith as something that is ours, or of us, or for us.
