Our 2017 Easter Sunday message audio – “10 Lessons from the Road”
The two on the road to Emmaus were “Easter people” and didn’t even know it. Jesus came alongside them, and they didn’t recognize Him. All they saw was the “doom and gloom” that clouded their eyesight. The war had been won, but the battle raged on.
And so are we, “Easter people”. And though we say we know it, we still walk with our eyes and our hearts downcast. We say we know that Jesus walks with us, but our feet drag and our shoulders sag.
O Father, warm our hearts and revive our spirits. Cause us to reach for the Living Bread, and allow us to see the nail-scarred hands reaching out to us. Then, oh Father, may we jump up and run to tell others that He IS alive and we CAN face whatever the day may bring! Because He lives, we CAN face tomorrow (and today, too.)
In His precious Name I pray – Amen.
