Walking (9)

I have a painting called “The Road to Emmaus.” This picture shows two men walking down a road with Jesus. If you look very carefully at the picture, you can see a city off in the distance. This painting is based on our Bible verses for today.
In these verses, we learn that the same day Jesus arose from the dead, two of His followers walked from Jerusalem to the town of Emmaus. As they walked, they talked about Jesus’ death. Verses 15-16 tell us, “While they were talking, 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 to Emmaus. Later, when Jesus was eating with them, “the men were allowed to recognize him” (verse 31). The two men were very excited that Jesus had been with them.
We cannot walk and talk with Jesus today like these two men, but we can still be excited to read the Bible and learn more about God. Take time to study His Word today!
