Get to Know Jesus as the Lord of Glory

Jesus' disciples were confused. They had seen Jesus perform miracles that only God could do. They watched as he fulfilled the messianic signs promised in the Old Testament. Then he started talking about being glorified, and in the same breath predicted that he would suffer and die. That's not what they were expecting to hear. When Jesus was transfigured before three of them and they saw the fullness of his glory, the voice of the Father reminded them to "listen to him" even though he might say some unexpected and even puzzling things. God speaks to us today in our worship, and commands us to do the same: "Listen to him!"
