[May 7]
We have not followed cunningly devised fables, when we made known unto you the power and coming [presence] of our Lord Jesus Christ, but were eyewitnesses of his majesty...when we were with him in the holy mount. II Peter 1:16, 18
CHRISTIAN experience today runs along the same lines. The more earnest and zealous of the Lord's followers are invited to go up with him into the mount of Transfiguration. Our eyes of understanding are opened. We see wonderful things—old things in a new light and new things as they become due to us in our day. Surely the advanced Christian sees his Master resplendent with a new brightness as he comes to closer fellowship with him and with the Father in the holy mount! May this be our blessed experience! Seated with Christ in the heavenlies, may we appreciate more and more the things of the kingdom, in contrast with earthly things. Z'11-376 R4890:5(Hymn 201)
