5.1 Fill My Cup, Lord

05_1Read Matthew chapter 17.  In the story of the Transfiguration we encounter two Jewish heroes, Moses and Elijah. Moses was the leader called by God to deliver the children of Israel from their Egyptian oppressors – a story remembered each year in the Passover Feast.  Elijah was the prophet who stood
up to the priests of Baal and a seat is reserved at the Passover Feast for his eminent return.  In the presence of these harbingers of God’s deliverance, a voice from the cloud says of Jesus, “This is my Son, the Beloved, with him I am well pleased; listen to him” (Matthew 17:5).  Where do you need to listen to
Jesus today?
