Lent Meditation

Monday March 20th Matthew 17 : 5
While he was still speaking, a bright cloud covered them, and a voice from the cloud said, "This is my son, whom I love and with him I am well pleased. Listen to him!"
Today we travel with the disciples to the mount of Transfiguration. Some years ago I visited this mount and sat inside the little chapel, where the sun shone through its windows. It was as the hymn writer expressed, "And the glory of the Lord shone around". I felt the tangible presence and power of Jesus in that place. To come near to Jesus is to come close to God himself.
Peter too, although in some ways he got it all wrong, realised that something supernatural was happening on that mount. The bright cloud — a symbol of the presence of God himself — and then those words spoken. Here was God saying in an awesome moment that Jesus is the one, the promised Messiah.
I guess that the important message we can learn from today's meditation is to STOP, LOOK AND LISTEN! Let the glory of God's presence shine through you today.
Father, help me to get my priorities right today; to take time to be in your presence and to stop, look and listen. In so doing, may I feel the joy of your Holy Spirit come and wrap around me.
