Amazingly, as Paul says, the Father has made Jesus our sin, so that we might know ourselves holy and beloved like Him, in Him. Today we eavesdrop on an intimate conversation between the Father with the Son. The heavens are opened and in a place of intimacy and prayer, in an intense spiritual experience named Transfiguration, Jesus and all of us hear the Father say, “You are my beloved one.” Truly, beloved is our name written on God’s heart.
