Day of Transfiguration

I read this recently in Francis Schaeffer's True Spirituality, and thought that it was appropriate for today, when we celebrate Christ's Transfiguration:
"We have here at the Mount of Transfiguration a preview of Christ in His glory.  We gave here a preview of that portion of the kingdom of God in which we stand after we have accepted Christ as our Savior.  But we are swept beyond this to the resurrection--not only Christ's resurrection, but our future resurrection; we are swept on to the reign of Christ, and to eternity.  This is a different perspective. . . ."
--From Chapter 2
(If you have True Spirituality, pick it up and read the chapter.  And the next.  I didn't want to stop there with my quote!)
