“A voice came from the cloud, saying, 'This is my Son, whom I have chosen; listen to him'" (Luke 9:35 NIV).

Lord who shows His glory through Jesus Christ!

Praise You, Lord, for the way You showed Your life-giving work even more greatly when the hardships that Christ had to endure were becoming deeper.

We reflect on whether we had only sought after our own glory, not remembering that there are also hardships and difficult moments we must endure. Please help us to fully obey the words of the One who has died on the cross and resurrected from death. We want to follow You who leads us to the Kingdom of God.

We long for the Kingdom and we want to live with shining faces. Allow us to trust in Jesus who has full power over heaven and earth. We believe in Jesus who has won over the death and who will reveal heaven to us. We pray in Jesus' name. Amen.
