Matthew 17:8 – “And when they lifted up their eyes, they saw no one, but Jesus only.” Jesus is enough. Moses and Elijah point to Jesus, and are happy to fade into the background. With our eyes focused on Him – and Him alone – the rest of our lives come into focus. He is primary; all else is secondary. When that order is right in our lives, things truly fall into place.
