On our honeymoon, my wife and I went snorkeling. Above the water, we could just see…water. But below the water, with the benefit of the masks we were wearing, we saw a whole other world: the sea teemed with bright fishes and gently waving grasses. That undersea world had always been there, but most of the time we were unable to see it.
In the Bible from time to time we get a glimpse of the deeper spiritual reality that is currently hidden from us with naked sight. The so-called Mount of Transfiguration is one of those times:
29 As he was praying, the appearance of his face changed, and his clothes became as bright as a flash of lightning. 30 Two men, Moses and Elijah, appeared in glorious splendor, talking with Jesus.Luke 9:29-30
Isn’t it fascinating to think about all the life that we are currently unable to see?
“For now we see only a reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.”1 Corinthians 13:12
