Lord, I do not take John’s writing lightly. He went up on the Mount of Transfiguration with you. When he states he has seen your glory, he actually beheld your transfigured glory. John the Baptizer witnessed, testified of your coming. John the Apostle experienced the Father saying, “This is my Son, my Chosen One; listen to him!” (Luke 9:35 ESV) I’m listening, Lord. I am learning. Lead me with your Holy Spirit in your name and authority, according to the good and perfect will of the Father. Amen.

“And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth. (John bore witness about him, and cried out, ‘This was he of whom I said, “He who comes after me ranks before me, because he was before me.”) For from his fullness we have all received, grace upon grace.” (John 1:14-16 ESV)
