"Then their eyes were opened and they recognized
him ... 'Were not our hearts burning within
us while he talked with us on the road
and opened the Scriptures to us?'"
Don’t we often miss seeing the Christ who is right next to us? We neglect to walk with Him, our faces are downcast, and we overlook that the risen Jesus is already near. We are taken aback that the first disciples and the remaining Apostles failed to accept the fact that the stone was rolled away, that the grave clothes were empty, and the tomb was vacant. But the truth that Christ is risen often escapes us also. We forget that Jesus still walks with us. The remarkable teaching from our risen Lord often fails to penetrate
Twice in the final chapter of Luke’s gospel, Jesus shares with His disciples – heading on the road to Emmaus and again back in Jerusalem – that … “Everything must be fulfilled that is written about me in the Law of Moses, the Prophets, and the Psalms.” All the Hebrew Bible and now the completed cannon of 66 books, Old and New, speak and point to the risen Savior. The entire Bible is all about Him! From the beginning pages to the very end, Jesus has been right there all along.
MAY OUR MINDS BE OPENED AND OUR HEARTS STIRRED THIS RESURRECTION SUNDAY.
