Transformed

video

So today in Sunday school class we talked about the transfiguration. I love this story and I am so thankful the Lord allowed me to teach it to His special children. I really wanted the kids to walk away with the knowledge that Jesus is God and He is Awesome. When He was transfigured on the mountain in front of Peter, James and John, He was giving them a glimpse of who He really is...God. He was transformed from the Jesus that they knew, walked with talked with, into Jesus the One, full of Majesty. The best part about sharing this story with anyone is to share the hope we have in Jesus. If we believe in Him and He is the Lord of our lives, He will transform our lives. He will make us more like Him. Not only that but we will become like Him when we are with Him in heaven. 1Jn 3:2 says "Beloved, now we are children of God, and it has not yet been revealed what we shall be. But we know that when He shall be revealed, we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is. " and one of my favorite verses Php 3:21 "Who shall change our vile body, that it may be fashioned like unto his glorious body, according to the working whereby he is able even to subdue all things unto himself" The kids were so excited to learn this truth and I was so blessed to be reminded of it. For our craft we did this cool project of a caterpillar transforming into a butterfly. When you look at it from direction it's a caterpillar, and when you look from the other direction it's a beautiful butterfly. I am so thankful that this life is not all there is and we as believers have so much to look forward to. Let us give praise and glory to our Lord Jesus Christ for all that He has done, is doing and is yet to do!
