The Unseen World

by Andrew Forrest

I went snorkeling on my honeymoon. From above, with your head out of water, the water just looks like water. When you put on your mask and dive, however, a whole new world can be seen: fish and plants in brilliant colors. That world was always there, of course, but I just couldn’t see it.

This is what the Mount of Transfiguration is about: Peter, James, and John are briefly permitted to see the normally inaccessible reality of the Kingdom of God.

Today’s Scripture

Mark 9:1-13

You said… “James, and John are briefly permitted to see the normally inaccessible reality of the Kingdom of God.” So now I see verse 1, with new understanding. “Some who are standing here will not taste death before they see… kingdom of God” !
