Walking (8)

Missing AttachmentI have a painting called “The Road to Emmaus.” This picture shows two men walking down a road with Jesus. If you look very carefully, you can see a city off in the distance. This painting is based on our Bible Reading for today.
In these verses, we learn that the same day Jesus rose from the dead, two of His followers walked from Jerusalem to the town of Emmaus. As they walked, they talked about Jesus’ death. Verses 15 and 16 say, “While they were discussing these things, Jesus himself came near and walked with them. (But the two men were not allowed to recognize Jesus.)”
Jesus and the two men walked on to Emmaus. Later, when Jesus was eating with them, “the men were allowed to recognize Jesus” (verse 31). The two men said in verse 32, “When Jesus talked to us on the road, it felt like a fire burning in us. It was exciting when he explained to us the true meaning of the Scriptures.”
We cannot walk and talk with Jesus today like the two men on the road to Emmaus. But we can still feel excitement when we read the Bible and learn about God and Jesus. Take time today to read and study His Word.
