Do you have an inner circle? Do you have people you can turn to and trust? Do you have 3 people who you would bring to the most important event of your life? Do you have 3 people who you would want to share the most incredible opportunity with?
1And he went on to say, “I tell you, there are some here who will not die until they have seen the Kingdom of God come with power.”
The Transfiguration(Matthew 17.1-13; Luke 9.28-36)2Six days later Jesus took with him Peter, James, and John, and led them up a high mountain, where they were alone. As they looked on, a change came over Jesus, 3and his clothes became shining white—whiter than anyone in the world could wash them. 4Then the three disciples saw Elijah and Moses talking with Jesus. 5Peter spoke up and said to Jesus, “Teacher, how good it is that we are here! We will make three tents, one for you, one for Moses, and one for Elijah.” 6He and the others were so frightened that he did not know what to say.7Then a cloud appeared and covered them with its shadow, and a voice came from the cloud, “This is my own dear Son—listen to him!” 8They took a quick look around but did not see anyone else; only Jesus was with them.9As they came down the mountain, Jesus ordered them, “Don’t tell anyone what you have seen, until the Son of Man has risen from death.”10They obeyed his order, but among themselves they started discussing the matter, “What does this ‘rising from death’ mean?” 11And they asked Jesus, “Why do the teachers of the Law say that Elijah has to come first?”12His answer was, “Elijah is indeed coming first in order to get everything ready. Yet why do the Scriptures say that the Son of Man will suffer much and be rejected? 13I tell you, however, that Elijah has already come and that people treated him just as they pleased, as the Scriptures say about him.”

Do they know how important they are to you? Do they realize they are part of the inner circle? What got them there?
It’s important who you pick, for Do not be fooled. Bad companions ruin good character.
