First the Cross, then the Glory

Written by
Who wants to face suffering, hardship, and loss? No one in a normal state of mind! So when Jesus tells us to pick up our cross and follow Him, that's not an invitation we're really excited about accepting.
We would prefer, as does most of American Christianity, to bypass the cross and go straight to the glory of God's presence full of joy, blessing, and prosperity.
On this Transfiguration Sunday, Jesus makes clear in our Scripture reading from Matthew 16:13 - 17:9 how He is at work: "First the Cross, then the Glory."
