YouVersion Reformation Reading Plan, day 304
If you are setting your mind on the things of man (life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness), you may not be setting them on the things of God (which included death, imprisonment, and suffering for Jesus and many of his disciples) (verse 33).
I never noticed that right before the transfiguration, we find out that people thought Jesus was Elijah or one of the prophets (Mark 8:28). Then — at the transfiguration — we see Jesus with Elijah and Moses. The implication is that Jesus is not Elijah or Moses, and that He is greater than they are. Jesus is far more than we imagine.

The LORD says to His people, to those who will be His remnant, “I will discipline you in just measure, and I will by no means leave you unpunished” (verse 28).
