“For he (Peter) did not know what to say, for they were terrified. And a cloud overshadowed them, and a voice came out of the cloud, “This is my beloved son; listen to him.” – Mark 9.6-7
Could it not be more simple? See the contrast? On Earth terror, speechlessness, overwhelming shadow, but from Heaven, O the call of a loving heart, such tenderness, “This is my beloved son; listen to him.” Do you? Will you? Desiring to hear his voice. O that you would stand in the loving presence of God listening to Jesus.
