Glimpses of Glory and Revelations of Grace
God has provided glimpses of his glory and holiness (Exodus 34:29-35). These revelations inspire awe and worship (Psalm 99). Our hope rests in God's revelation to us through Jesus Christ. Thanks be to God! He is transforming us through his Spirit and calling us into the light of his glory (2 Corinthians 3:12-4:2). At times, we may be terrified, but we are called to trust God and listen to his Chosen Son as we worship and wait for his healing (Luke 9:28-43a).
Scripture Readings

The Lord reigns, let the nations tremble; he sits enthroned between the cherubim, let the earth shake. Great is the Lord in Zion; he is exalted over all the nations. Let them praise your great and awesome name—he is holy. The King is mighty, he loves justice...Exalt the Lord our God and worship at his footstool; he is holy....

O God, who before the passion of your only-begotten Son revealed his glory upon the holy mountain: Grant to us that we, beholding by faith the light of his countenance, may be strengthened to bear our cross, and be changed into his likeness from glory to glory; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, forever and ever. Amen. - The Book of Common Prayer
