Sermon Outline

Big Idea: Embracing Jesus’ Majesty gives us strength and confidence to follow Him.

1. The Big Reveal (v. 1-3)

  • Jesus is God Himself
  • Know Jesus…Know God
  • The OT finds it’s fulfillment in Christ. (Luke 24:27).

2. The Response to the Big Reveal (v.4-8)

  • Wrong Response: Let’s stay here!
  • Right Response: Fell on their faces in fear!
    • How long has it been since I’ve been so captivated by the Majesty of Jesus that I am

3. Lingering Questions (v.7-13)

  • Why Elijah?
  • Why does he keep talking about rising from the dead?
  • The cross has to come before the glory

4. Lingering Effects (2 Peter 1:16-19)

  • The significance of the transfiguration was not just to show us Jesus in his glory but it was a sneak preview for when Jesus is recognized as the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords.
  • Embrace God’s Word

Key Questions

  1. Who do I say that Jesus is?
  2. Is my Jesus too small? What do I need to do to remind myself of the Majesty of Jesus?
  3. How is my expectation of Jesus returning in glory making a difference in how I am living today?
