The Road

And it happened that, while he was with them at table,
he took bread, said the blessing,
broke it, and gave it to them.
With that their eyes were opened and they recognized him,
but he vanished from their sight. Luke 24:30-31

What a powerful testimony, my God, you have a way with letting us know where Jesus is. The two men on the road to Emmaus, had a burning within them while listening to a man speak of the Gospels. Little did they know that he was speaking directly to their hearts.

How amazed they were when you said the blessing then broke the bread, it's as if their eyes were opened as well as their ears. Then on top of it to see you vanish from their sight, wow!

Wow, indeed, God most definitely has a way of getting himself across to us doesn't he. He isn't playing disruptive music while they are contemplating what just happened. They were able to hear and see without what we have today. Music that most times takes away from the very receiving of Jesus. It was the silence around them that enabled them to know his presence, to see his presence.

Today we put so much into us that it makes this very act that the ones on the road to Emmaus have experienced difficult to understand. Jesus wanted us to know where he is. What a loving God we have to let us know where we can always find him. To partake of him, so we too may have life with him. Glory to God for revealing to us were we will always find Jesus in our midst.
