Jesus and the Journey

by | Apr 7, 2021 | Journey

The story of those on the road to Emmaus is about disappointed followers of Jesus, who believed that the journey with Jesus died Good Friday. As they traveled, they are joined by another. This other asked about their sadness and despair. This stranger began to probe around their scripture knowledge with questions and then joined them for a meal. In the moment of breaking bread, their eyes immediately recognized that it was the risen Jesus. They rushed back to share the news that they had seen the risen Lord.

I believe the important message is that Jesus journeys with us, even if we are unaware of his presence at times. In places of darkness, it is easy to believe that everything is lost and we are all alone, but that is contradicted by this story. Jesus does journey with us in days of joy and trial. We are not alone.
