Mark 9 “From the Inside Out”
Jesus takes three of his disciples, Peter, James and John, to the top of a mountain to show them, and us, what it means to be transformed. Mark records Peter’s recollection of this amazing story of Jesus’ Transfiguration.

Jesus supernaturally metamorphosed from his humanity to his divinity thus giving them, and us, a picture of our heavenly reflections that we will one day receive. 1Co 15:52 in a moment, in the blinking of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised imperishable, and we will be changed.

Until then we should also be in the process of being transformed from the inside out that the world may see a new “us.” 2Co 3:18 And we all, with unveiled faces reflecting the glory of the Lord, are being transformed .”

Before this process can begin we must repent of our sins and turn from our sinful ways to He who has the power to change us from the inside out and then live in this way: Rom 12:2 Do not be conformed to this present world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind,
Beloved, how does the world see each of us …as we “were” or as we “are becoming?”
