We never walk through life alone, Our Lord and Our Friend is always with us, but sometimes circumstances of life prevent us, from seeing Him.
Maybe like the two disciples in Luke 24 verse3 13 to 34; They had just been through the most traumatic thing of their lives. They were following Jesus, but He was arrested, tortured and crucified. The disciples must have thought they had found, what their lives were searching for, they thought they had found the Messiah. They had, but their thoughts about His intentions, had left them distraught and confused.
When we come and accept Christ Jesus, as Our Savior, and we to might be confused what happens next. It is easy to fall into the assumption, everything from here on in will be easy. But Our Lord, Our Savor and Our Friend, doesn’t promise us that, He tells us to take up our cross and follow Him. Matthew 16 v 24:
The Promises He makes are real, Hebrews 13 verse 5; “I will never leave you or forsake you”.
In the story of the two disciples, Luke also show us how disciples of any age or time have their eyes opened to Jesus’ presence. When Jesus, unrecognized, joins them as they walked confused, by what what was happening. They appeared to be without hope, and at times we may feel the same. The bottom of our world has dropped out like the disciples.
Gradually their eyes are opened, As they listen to Jesus they began to realize, their misunderstanding about what happened. The Cross, far from being a tragedy, was a triumph. The Cross to us also is a triumph. We can take hold of The Messiah promises too.
Matthew 6 verse 34: “Therefore don’t worry about tomorrow, because tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own”.
The world may collapse around us, all our thoughts of what would happen, might be in shambles on our journey trough life, Be assure His promises are true, and the words of that wonderful song are true too. “Jesus loves me this I know, for the Bible tells me so”.
