Now that same day two of them were going to a village called Emmaus, about seven miles from Jerusalem.
They were talking with each other about everything that had happened. As they talked and discussed these things with each other, Jesus himself came up and walked along with them; but they were kept from recognizing him.
He asked them, “What are you discussing together as you walk along?”
They stood still, their faces downcast. One of them, named Cleopas, asked him, “Are you the only one visiting Jerusalem who does not know the things that have happened there in these days?”
“What things?” he asked.
“About Jesus of Nazareth,” they replied. “He was a prophet, powerful in word and deed before God and all the people. The chief priests and our rulers handed him over to be sentenced to death, and they crucified him; but we had hoped that he was the one who was going to redeem Israel. And what is more, it is the third day since all this took place. In addition, some of our women amazed us. They went to the tomb early this morning but didn’t find his body. They came and told us that they had seen a vision of angels, who said he was alive. Then some of our companions went to the tomb and found it just as the women had said, but they did not see Jesus.”
He said to them, “How foolish you are, and how slow to believe all that the prophets have spoken! Did not the Messiah have to suffer these things and then enter his glory?” And beginning with Moses and all the Prophets, he explained to them what was said in all the Scriptures concerning himself.
As they approached the village to which they were going, Jesus continued on as if he were going farther. But they urged him strongly, “Stay with us, for it is nearly evening; the day is almost over.” So he went in to stay with them.
When he was at the table with them, he took bread, gave thanks, broke it and began to give it to them. Then their eyes were opened and they recognized him, and he disappeared from their sight. They asked each other, “Were not our hearts burning within us while he talked with us on the road and opened the Scriptures to us?” They got up and returned at once to Jerusalem. There they found the eleven and those with them assembled together and saying, “It is true!” The Lord has risen and has appeared to Simon.” Then the two told what had happened on the way, and how Jesus was recognized by them when he broke the bread. Luke 24:13-35
Wow! Can you imagine being on a road and not realizing that Jesus is walking right with you? I personal had such an experience in my own life! Their is such a retreat for woman and men different long weekends that you go onto the Walk to Emmaus. You are not allow to have a watch, phone, or any electronics on your journey. It is a time for you to draw closer to the Risen Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. A time for fellowship with other Christians, worship, music, prayers and more. During my own journey I drew closer to Jesus, and to continue to go deeper, deeper than I have ever done before in my understanding of my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To come to understand what he has done for me, and how much he truly loves me, simply because I am his child. The more I read God’s word daily the more that my spirit cries out for understanding from him. I know I have so much more to learn on my journey I just need to continue to Trust that His plan for my own life will be so much more than I can ever imagine.
Grace and Peace to you my friends
