Unlimited: Jesus Only

Peter said to Jesus, “Rabbi, it is good for us to be here. Let us put up three shelters—one for you, one for Moses and one for Elijah.”(He did not know what to say, they were so frightened.)

Then a cloud appeared and covered them, and a voice came from the cloud: “This is my Son, whom I love. Listen to him!”

 Suddenly, when they looked around, they no longer saw anyone with them except Jesus (Mark 9:5–8, NIV).

In today’s passage, we step right into the middle of the transfiguration!

There was Jesus on the mountain, dazzling in his glory, speaking with Elijah and Moses. How would you react?

Peter was so awestruck by what he witnessed, that he was just babbling. He wanted to build some places for Jesus and Moses and Elijah to stay in, so they wouldn’t leave. In his mind, he was putting Moses and Elijah and Jesus all at the same level.

The religious teachers taught that Moses and Elijah would come to earth to announce the coming of the Messiah. These were the two greatest prophets of their religion.

But the Father is displeased when Peter wants to build places of rest for Jesus, Moses, and Elijah. God hides the scene from view and his voice is heard from heaven pointing to his beloved Son and commanding all to listen only to him.

And then, when the three disciples recovered, Moses and Elijah were gone. They saw Jesus only.

It’s so easy for us to focus our attention away from Jesus! The traditions we have learnt so easily rule our religious lives.

– Eliezer Gonzalez

Eli’s Reflection: But the lesson here is simple. We must learn to see Jesus only. And we must only listen to Jesus, the one whom the Father loves. Who are you listening to? How can you listen more to Jesus? Where are you getting advice and the wisdom you are building your life on?
