Sermon Notes - Seeking your own experience of the glory of God!

 

The Last Sunday After Epiphany Year C

Transfiguration

 

Theme:

Seeking your own experience of the glory of God!

 

Key Preaching Verses

 

Luke 9.29-30 and 35:  “As He was praying, the appearance of His face changed, and His clothes became as bright as a flash of lightning.  Two men, Moses and Elijah, appeared in glorious splendour, talking with Jesus...A voice came from the cloud, saying, ‘This is my Son, whom I have chosen; listen to him.’

 

Focus Questions

·        What do you make of the transfiguration of the Lord?  Have you ever had a personal mountain top experience (an epiphany) of the awesome glory of God?  How did this experience change your life?

·        Where do you go to experience Jesus? (Hint: See the sermon summary!)

·        The disciples Peter, James and John wanted to build shelters and stay on the Mountain of Transfiguration.  But for the genuine Christian this is not an option.  God never gives us Christians the luxury of sitting on our bottoms and doing nothing!  How has Gos called you to speak Christ’s message of faith, hope and love into a world that is suffering a crisis of faith, hope and love?

·        Do you spend time each and every day in prayer, bible-reading and reflection seeking the glory of God?
