Matthew 17:5 — “While he was still speaking, behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them; and suddenly a voice came out of the cloud, saying, “This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased, Hear Him!”
God the Father affirmed Jesus’ mission on earth to take the sins of the world upon Him. This was confirmation to the disciples that Jesus was and is the promised Messiah. We should listen for God’s voice “Hear Him” and then heed what He tells us. God loves us so much, He wants what’s best for us, He just desires that we listen to Him and believe what He says, and then put that belief into action. God will take care of the rest!
