Methodist Preaching service, 3/3/2011. Preacher: Obed Sebapalo, Scripture: 2 Peter 1:16-21
The theme of the sermon was Peter’s witness of the Transfiguration of Jesus as an example of the Christian imperative to speak, unashamedly, of Jesus Christ as Lord, saviour and God.
I was struck by the sense of awe that comes through in the scripture reading: “We were witnesses to his Majesty”. I try to capture the awe that peter, James and John experienced when they witnessed the Transfiguration of Jesus.
