Two of Jesus’ disciples were returning downcast from...

They constrained him (Jesus), saying, Abide with us, for it is toward evening, and the day is far spent. And he went in to stay with them.
Luke 24:29.

Two of Jesus’ disciples were returning downcast from Jerusalem to their home village of Emmaus. The leaders of the people had condemned their Lord and Master in a totally unjust court case. Now he had died on the cross. Every hope that their nation would be liberated and conditions would improve had been dashed.

On their journey a stranger suddenly joined them. At first it seemed as if he had heard nothing of the events in Jerusalem. Then an interesting and intense conversation developed concerning indications and announcements of the sufferings of the Christ in the Old Testament books written centuries before.

It was evening when the three travellers finally reached Emmaus. The stranger acted as if “he would have gone farther” (v. 28). Readers know already that it was Jesus the Lord, who had accompanied the disciples unknown to them. After Jesus had spoken to them extensively about Himself, the Saviour and Redeemer, about His great love and sufferings, He awaited their reaction. And they did not hesitate. Although they had not recognised Him, they invited Him in. They were attracted by His Person, His words and the way He had explained the Christ: their heart burned within them (cf. v. 32). Only then did the Lord reveal Himself without speaking.

For us today there remains the question: Won’t you allow the One who suffered on the cross of Calvary and died for you into your lives? Would you prefer Him to pass you by, leaving you with your doubts, your hopeless state and your guilt? What is your answer?

Today’s reading: Daniel 8:15-27 · Acts 2:37-47

OF KEYS AND DOORS

Every apartment or compartment with a lock has its key. It takes a key to open the gate of a house and several keys to enter the house its rooms. If you have fridge, car or wardrobe, you will equally have their keys. From the foregoing therefore, it is apparent that several good things with value have their...More

Blessed is everyone who fears the LORD, who walks in His ways…


Blessed is everyone who fears the LORD, who walks in His ways…Behold, thus shall the man be blessed who fears the LORD.
(Psalm 128:1,4 ESV)

The Lord has promised blessing to the man who fears Him. Scripture is clear that the entire family is impacted when the head of the home and...More

BE DETERMINED TO WAIT

There is a waiting period that precedes the manifestation of great expectations. The gestation period of an African elephant is the longest of all mammals. It lasts for about 22 months, which is almost two calendar years. Contrast this with that of a rat which is just about 20 days. If your expectation is great,...More

SCHEMING NOT ALLOWED

In Numbers 16, we read of a highly explosive rebellion that rocked God’s people in the wilderness. Some leaders were not satisfied with the level of assignment God had apportioned to them. Instead of going through Moses to God to ask if there could be an expansion of their job description, they began to eye the...More
