Mark 9 allows us an eyewitness account of a mountain top experience Jesus has with some of his early followers. It’s known as the ‘transfiguration’ – which is a fancy name to communicate that Jesus reveals more of who He really is to them. There are some lessons here for us.

Faith is a combination of belief and commitment. A belief is a thought that we think to be true. A commitment is an act of our will. In life there will be times when we need to make a choice of 100 percent commitment with less than 100 percent of certainty. Like our faith in Jesus Christ, if we wait until we have total certainty, we will have no life at all.
