So close…and yet so far away

walking with jesus

“We had hoped¬† he was the Messiah who had come to rescue Israel.”

Luke 24:21

Can you imagine saying these words to Jesus Himself??

That’s what happened to Cleopas and his friend as they sadly walked to Emmaus one day feeling as if their Savior wasn’t really who had claimed to be.¬† Suddenly, they were joined by none other than the resurrected Messiah but they did not know who he was.

When Jesus joined them and asked what they were “discussing so intently,” they thought he must be the only person in Jerusalem who hadn’t heard the news of the last few days.

Thankfully, Jesus was able to share the truth with them, and I’d say their lives were never, ever the same.

Can you imagine hearing their testimony in a church service?

Do you have a testimony?

Have you ever been at a place in your life where what you “hoped” would happen didn’t and then somehow Jesus walked along side you through a friend or a song or a sermon or a Scripture and suddenly your eyes were opened to the truth????

I hope so!

If not, I’m praying that very thing for you this week!

Have a wonderful week!
