Transfigured

Dearly Beloved, Grace and Peace to you.          

         He was transfigured before them,                   and his face shone like the sun,                   and his clothes became dazzling white.          From the cloud a voice said,                   "This is my Own, my Beloved;                   with him I am well pleased."                            —Matthew 17. 2, 5

You are God's Beloved.          Let it be so.          That's how you become pure light.

What was brilliant in Jesus          was simply God's pleasure          radiating in him.

Open your heart to God's desire for you          like light pouring into a room,          like silence receiving a bird song.

God's love for you          burns like a bonfire in you.          How do you put that under a bushel?

It's not arrogant to bask          in God's delight in you. How stuck up it would be          to spurn the Beloved's ardent passion!

Lie down and let God make love to you.          See? Even as you blush reading this          you begin to glow.

Become the Beloved,          and like a youth in love          you will be transfigured          with the light of God.

Deep Blessings, Pastor Steve
