Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus.

Matthew 16:24-17:13
There will come a time when the glory of God will be fully revealed - ‘the Son of man is going to come in His Father's glory’(27). Here on earth, there are ‘foretastes of glory divine’: verse 28 may be understood in connection with the transfiguration (2) - the divine glory of heaven breaking through into our human life on earth. Revelations of glory prepared these men for discipleship. They turned their eyes upon Jesus (8). They looked full in His wonderful face (2). The things of earth grew strangely dim in the light of His glory and grace (Mission Praise, 59,712) - ‘Lord, it is good for us to be here’(4). The ‘mountain top’ experience could not be preserved - no ‘three shelters’(4)! We can continue to worship, hear Jesus’ words and look to Him (6-8), rejoicing in His suffering for us (12) and awaiting His return to ‘restore all things’(11).
