God's Holiness and Our Depravity

27 February 2022

Sermon given by the Rev. Mark Galloway (Bishop-retired) on Last Epiphany (2/27/2022 – The Transfiguration).

We spend so much of our lives self-focused, but almost none of that time self-aware. We convince ourselves of lies about how we want people to see us, but we never confront the reality of who we really are in our sinful state. The Transfiguration of Christ gives us the perspective of God’s holiness, our depravity before Him, and our need for Jesus’s saving grace. When we fall prostrate before the Lord, we gain true perspective on how messed up we really are.

Readings: Exodus 34:29-35; Psalm 99; 1 Corinthians 12:27-13:13; Luke 9:28-36
