We are in the process of being transfigured -- that is -- being changed by the Spirit of God. There is much about our transfiguration that is a mystery. Why God does not just give-up on us, is a mystery. How we are transfigured, is a mystery. Why transfiguration is a lifelong process, is a mystery.
There is much about our transfiguration that is a mystery. But there is one thing that is not -- the fact that someday all of us will complete our transfiguration, when, as we step across the threshold of that pearly gate up high in the sky and we hear those loving words of our Lord and Savior: “Welcome home.”
