Gospel of Luke: On The Road To Emmaus

Can you think of a time of great disappointment in your life? A time when you were so discouraged because things didn’t go as you had hoped and expected? It’s a terrible feeling, isn’t it? After his resurrection, Jesus appeared to two of his disciples who were disappointed, discouraged, brokenhearted. They were on their way home when Jesus joined them. He explained from the Scriptures the necessity of the Messiah’s death, how the Scriptures were fulfilled in his resurrection, and the reality of his identity. Their eyes were opened. Our eyes need to be opened by God through his Word and his indwelling Spirit such that we might really see Jesus, just like those two disciples on the road to Emmaus.
