See Jesus Like Never Before

Prayer Meditation for theMarch 17

Today’s Gospel reading focuses on the revelation of Jesus’ glory as he begins his final journey to the Cross.

As we take time now to pray and reflect on this reading, let’s pay special attention to God’s command, “This is my chosen Son, listen to him.”

 

Prayer Meditation

 

Prayerfully place yourself in today’s Gospel reading. Imagine being one of the three apostles who had been chosen to ascend Mount Tabor with Jesus. If you had been one of the apostles, you would have seen Jesus practically every day for about three years following him in his public ministry. But now, you see Jesus like never before—transfigured and radiant in glory. Suddenly, in the midst of this extraordinary revelation of Jesus, a voice from heaven speaks. It is God the Father, saying “This is my Son, my Chosen; listen to him” (RSV). The one command the heavenly Father gives you in this most amazing moment of divine revelation is to listen to Jesus, his Son. Take time now in prayer to consider what ways Jesus may want you to listen to him more in your life. 

 

Resolution

 

Responding to the Father’s command to “listen” to Jesus, come up with one specific resolution you can make this week to help you listen more closely to Jesus.
