A Path, a Task and a Key

Jesus took Peter, James, and John
and led them up a high mountain apart by themselves.
And he was transfigured before them… (MK 9:2-10)

I believe that everything Jesus claimed about Himself, applies to each and every one of us. It seems clear to me the Father gave Jesus the task to show us the way to travel, a path back to our Father in heaven. The Transfiguration of Jesus and the appearance of Moses and Elijah show us that God provided Jesus with guides to assist Him with His task (teach us the way) on His journey to the cross.

 

The Father gave Jesus a Path (to journey) a task (to do) a cross (to overcome) and a key (to make it possible). The Key is Jesus’ consent—that only He can give—“Not my will but Thine be done”. (Jesus never left His source the Father)

 

God will never abandon us even when we abandon God. I believe God gives everyone of us a path, a task, a cross and a key and heaven is our home and destination.

  1. It’s the example of his, Jesus’ life, that is before us that we should follow and emmulate. Words are good but actions are stronger. In other words, ‘lead by example’ which would also be ‘teach by example’. In my life, whether at work, in music, or living every day life day-to-day, the best lessons I’ve learned have been by example.
