After six days Jesus took with him Peter, James and John the brother of James, and led them up a high mountain by themselves. There he was transfigured before them. His face shone like the sun, and his clothes became as white as the light. Just then there appeared before them Moses and Elijah, talking with Jesus. – Matthew 17:1-3 (NIV)
God (Father, Son and Holy Spirit) exists in community, and knows we need close relationships to speak into our lives and to help us to not be alone. At the Transfiguration, Jesus revealed himself completely, in all his glory, to Peter, James and John. Since we are not yet completely like Christ, our complete revelation to others will reveal faults as well as strengths, but it is still important to our growth to maturity that we transparently share our lives with a few trusted friends. Who do you let see the real you, the whole you, warts and all, and allow to speak God’s wisdom into your life? Find them, treasure them, live in community with them.
