Risen Lord

The last name for Jesus that we will look at is Risen Lord. Our Bible Reading today tells us about two men who were followers of Jesus. They were traveling from Jerusalem to the town of Emmaus. While they were walking, a man came and walked with them. This man was Jesus, but the men did not recognize Him.
Jesus listened as the men talked about Him and His death. Then the men said that Jesus was alive. Jesus stayed with the men and went to their home. “Jesus got ready to eat with them and took some bread…At that time the men were allowed to recognize Jesus. But when they saw who he was, he disappeared” (verses 30-31).
The two men went back to Jerusalem and found other followers of Jesus. The men said (verse 34a), “The Lord (Jesus) really has risen from death!” All of these people were excited to know that Jesus had risen.
We should be excited, too! Why? Because Jesus’ resurrection means that we can live forever with Him. Thank God today for this wonderful miracle!
