The Walk to Emmaus
In Luke today, we see the Lord on his famous walk to Emmeaus. Jesus is so cool. I love the way He kinda “plays” with his friends. He doesn’t fully reveal Himself to them and tests them in the flesh during their walk. It’s almost like He wanted to see if they were ready to preach the Gospel if given the chance… hey… wait-a-minute…
Anyway, I love the way Jesus DOES reveal Himself to His friends. He breaks the bread and gives it to Him. Remember this from the last supper?
And he took bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to them, saying, “This is my body given for you; do this in remembrance of me.” (Luke 22:19 NIV)
Then we see this in today’s reading…
As they sat down to eat, he took the bread and blessed it. Then he broke it and gave it to them. Suddenly, their eyes were opened, and they recognized him. And at that moment he disappeared! (Luke 24:30, 31 NLT)
Jesus has style… the way He does stuff…ya know? If he concealed His identity with His friends to test them, where in my life has He done the same? I remember one place for certain. You can read about it in my Testimony, but I’m sure there are many more.
It is because of the work that Jesus completed in the reading today that Psalm 100 has great meaning for me. Check this out…
Shout for joy to the Lord, all the earth. Worship the Lord with gladness;
come before him with joyful songs. Know that the Lord is God.
It is he who made us, and we are his;
we are his people, the sheep of his pasture. Enter his gates with thanksgiving
and his courts with praise;
give thanks to him and praise his name. For the Lord is good and his love endures forever;
his faithfulness continues through all generations. (Psalm 100:1-5 NIV)
What in the world could I add to that? Have a great Sunday with your family.
