While Peter, James and John were asleep JESUS was Transfigured. When they woke up they witnessed JESUS in HIS Glory with Moses and Elijah (Luke 9:32). How much of GOD'S Glory do we miss because we are SPIRITUALLY ASLEEP? We miss the "things of GOD" when we let our own life go "unexamined"; when we "hide or ignore" our problems; or not facing our "doubts or problems". Concentrating on having a life of ease, could hinder us from the challenges that would bring us closer to CHRIST. Prejudice and sorrow (self-pity) can keep us from expanding GOD'S territory in our lives. JESUS wants to reveal HIS Glory to us, as HE did with Peter, James and John, as we seek HIS presence with "Faith and Reverence". Or do we miss it all by accepting the "lethargic comfort" of being SPIRITUALLY ASLEEP?
