Day Two – Jesus is Alive

Luke 24:13-15; 25-27
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. 15 As they talked and discussed these things with each other, Jesus himself came up and walked along with them…
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.

Jesus himself came up and walked along with these two disciples. “They need to hear the Word of God to clear up the confusion of their own ‘words’ (24:17).”(Garland, David E.; Clinton E. Arnold. Luke (Zondervan Exegetical Commentary on the New Testament))

Because we are his, Jesus also comes to us, by the Holy Spirt, to apply his word at the core of our being – burning away all lies, confusion, hopelessness, despair and mistrust –to apply the truth that in the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus is our living, our dying, and our new life.

Prayer:  Jesus, you are the risen Lord.  May the truth of that word touch every part of my life.  I also pray for my brother/ sister who is in need of your resurrection power at work in their life.  Will you come and walk alongside them and minister your word of life?  In Jesus’ name.  Amen.

Let’s worship the Lord in song and declare over our lives with “Jesus is Alive” by Sinach (click here).
