Scripture Reading: The Transfiguration
Jesus says that the that the reaction to faith should be action. This story could easily be called the Transfiguration of Peter. Transfiguration comes from this word metamorphoun in Greek. We all know the word metamorphosis. It means to change and morph form. So it’s this idea that we’re supposed to transform from one idea of who we are to something else. That’s what’s happening to Peter and the disciples here, they’re transforming from one mentality about who Jesus is and what that means for them, into something else. If we really put our feet into the shoes of Peter, that’s the kind of experience that we would have as well. That we should experience a realignment of our outer reality to the inward one that we experience. Like Peter, we are to be transfigured and transformed.
