Amazingly, witnessing the transfiguration didn’t stop Peter from denying Jesus. It’s not simply the external encounter with Jesus but the internal filling and working of the Holy Spirit in our lives that transforms us.
We can witness God do some amazing things in our lives and the lives of those we know. Yet how quick we are to fall away (think of the Israelites in the OT and all God did).
Father, thank you for the gift of the Holy Spirit, for dwelling and working in me. May I never forget nor neglect Your empowering presence in my life.
