“Six days later Jesus took with Him Peter and James and John his brother, and led them up on a high mountain by themselves” (Matthew 17:1).
The three accompanying Jesus, and who would be witnesses to our Lord’s transfiguration, are counted as the inner circle from among the twelve disciples. While some would consider this a privileged position of intimacy, others speculate that Jesus kept them close because they needed the most work. Regardless, the fact is we all have an inner with whom we are more closely associated. The question for our devotional consideration is, “What does our inner circle see in us?” Would they testify that a transfiguration is being accomplished in our lives as the transforming power of the gospel is being allowed to shape us into Christlikeness?
