• “If we do anything to further the kingdom of God, we may expect to find what Christ found on that road – abuse, indifference, injustice, misunderstanding, trouble of some kind. Take it. Why not? To that you were called. If we think of the glorious fact that we are on the same path with Jesus, we might see a rainbow.” – Elisabeth Elliot

Joy and Strength 08/06

And was transfigured before them: and His face did shine as the sun, and His raiment was white as the light.
Matt. xvii. 2.

Master, it is good for us to be here.
Mark ix. 5.

Master, it is good to be
Entranced, enwrapt, alone with Thee
Watching the glistering raiment glow.
Whiter than Hermon’s whitest snow
The human lineaments that shine
Irradiant with a light Divine:
Till we too change from grace to grace.
Gazing on that transfigured face.
A. P. Stanley.

THE Transfiguration has lived on through ages, and has shed its light upon all ages. It has brought the past into union with the present. “The decease which He should accomplish at Jerusalem” has been owned as the bond of fellowship between those who walk the earth and suffer in it, and those who are departed from it. In the light of that “countenance which was altered, of that raiment which was white and glistering,” all human countenances have acquired a brightness, all common things have been transfigured. A glimpse of the Divine beauty has broken through the darkness, and has cheered the humblest pilgrims.

Frederic Denison Maurice.
