CHRIST IS RISEN-HE IS RISEN INDEED-ALLELUIA!

"Then they told what had happened on the road, and how He was known to them in the breaking of the bread."
- Luke 24:13-35
 
Two of our Lord's disciples walked the seven miles from Jerusalem to the village of Emmaus after the Easter Sunday event. As they walked they talked about what had happened during the past week. Death had taken their Master and their hope gauge was on empty.
 
Suddenly they were joined by another traveler. It was Jesus, but they did not recognize Him. They were surprised that their new traveling companion had not heard about the events of the previous week in Jerusalem concerning the death of Jesus of Nazareth.

CHRIST IS RISEN-HE IS RISEN INDEED-ALLELUIA!

Suddenly they were joined by another traveler. It was Jesus, but they did not recognize Him. They were surprised that their new traveling companion had not heard about the events of the previous week in Jerusalem concerning the death of Jesus of Nazareth. They told Him the whole sad story, which triggered a walking Bible class, with the stranger doing the teaching. Luke's gospel says "Beginning with Moses and all the Prophets, He explained to them what was said in all the Scriptures concerning Himself."
 
As the sun set, the travelers sought refuge at a inn. St. Luke tells us that while the LORD was  breaking bread with them, their eyes were opened. Then Jesus vanished from their sight.
 
Christian friends, as we meditate on God's Word, Jesus comes to us and opens our eyes. Our heart should also burn within us (like the two disciples asked themselves,"Were not our hearts burning within us while He talked to us on the road and opened the Scriptures to us?) as we cast all our care on Him, knowing that He cares for us. He opened His Word to us and reveals that He is the Way, the Truth, and the Life. Our hearts will burn as God restores to us the joy of our salvation.
 
Search the Scriptures, finding there
Christ, its chiefest treasure rare;
Search and find what He will do
To enrich all life for you.
 
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY - Jesus Christ is the recurring theme in the symphony of scripture.
