While Peter was still speaking, the shadow of a bright cloud passed over them. From the cloud a voice said, “This is my own dear Son, and I am pleased with him. Listen to what he says!” When the disciples heard the voice, they were so afraid that they fell flat on the ground. But Jesus came over and touched them. He said, “Get up and don’t be afraid!”
Matthew 17:5-7 (CEV)
What a comfort it is that Christ is nearby, that through His word and touch of grace He is able to remove the clouds of fear.
