Seeing No Man but Jesus

The Bible records an amazing event in the life of the Lord Jesus, during His time on earth, when He was transfigured on a mountain, meaning His body shone with a glorious radiance. This event was witnessed by three of His disciples, Peter, James, and John. At the same time, a cloud descended over them and God spoke with an audible voice saying, “This is My beloved Son, hear Him”. Peter, James, and John were deeply afraid and fell on their faces to the ground. But Jesus came to them, and touched them, and said, “Arise and do not be afraid”. When they looked they saw no man but Jesus alone.

This experience of seeing Jesus only, is a picture of salvation for us, which is centred on the One Man, Jesus. The disciples had every reason to be afraid at the majesty and holiness of God and the glory of Jesus Christ, however, Jesus came to them and said, “Be not afraid”. Fear was replaced by peace through One Person, the Lord Jesus Christ. For us today, we have every reason to fear God because of our sinfulness but when we look to this One Man, the Lord Jesus Christ, as our Saviour and Lord, we find in Him absolute salvation and eternal security.

God says, “Hear Him”, but how can we hear Him? We hear Him through the Bible, which reveals to us His warnings about unbelief but also wonderful promises to those who believe. Jesus said:

“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. And this is the condemnation, that the light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.” John 3.16-19
