“Fully God, Fully Man”
 
This thought is a truth about the Lord Jesus Christ.
In His earthly life, it is easy to see His humanness.
He is human because He lays aside His glory for a while.
 
However, one day He picked it up for a time and this is what His Godliness looked like.
 
Please read the following verses.
The Transfiguration
Luke 9:28-36
28 About eight days after Jesus said this, he took Peter, John, and James with him and went up onto a mountain to pray.
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.
31 They spoke about his departure, which he was about to bring to fulfillment at Jerusalem.
32 Peter and his companions were very sleepy, but when they became fully awake, they saw his glory and the two men standing with him.
33 As the men were leaving Jesus, Peter said to him, “Master, it is good for us to be here. Let us put up three shelters—one for you, one for Moses and one for Elijah.” (He did not know what he was saying.)
 
34 While he was speaking, a cloud appeared and covered them, and they were afraid as they entered the cloud.
35 A voice came from the cloud, saying, “This is my Son, whom I have chosen; listen to him.”
 
36 When the voice had spoken, they found that Jesus was alone. The disciples kept this to themselves and did not tell anyone at that time what they had seen.
 
I have tried to imagine what it must have been like for Peter, James, and John to see the glory of Jesus Christ.
 
I am sure it was beautiful, amazing and wonderful beyond comparison to anything else we see on this earth.
 
In His earthly life, Jesus comes as a suffering servant. On His next trip to earth, He will be a wonderful, glorious and a conquering Lord.
 
Scripture reminds us, Phil 2:10-11
10 that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow,
in heaven and on earth and under the earth,
11 and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord,
to the glory of God the Father.
 
Oh, Lord Jesus Christ, what a tremendous joy and privilege it will be to live eternally with You.
 
Amen.
