For a brief moment, three followers of Jesus see something of his real glory, hear God speaking about how much He loves His Son, are challenged to listen to Jesus and to focus on Him alone.
What is our understanding of Jesus, are we prepared to focus on Him and not be distracted / influenced by other things or people?

Reading: Matthew 17:1-13

Questions to think about:

  • Can you think of a time when you had a particularly powerful experience of, appreciation of, Jesus? Share some thoughts with other members of the group.
  • How do you respond to the challenge to listen to Jesus and to focus on Him alone? What distractions get in the way?
  • How do you keep a real appreciation of Jesus, a focus on Him, in the busyness and pressures of everyday life?
