While they journeyed they occupied themselves with past circumstances, talking together of all these things which had happened. That was their biggest mistake that you shouldn’t do my friend when you’ve crossed over.
Jesus appeared on them, but in disguised, and asked, "What kind of conversation is this that you have with one another as you walk and are sad?" Luke 24:17.
How they answered is probably what every Christian would do when they want to demonstrate how versed they’re with the scriptures, they know something, be it current affairs or history.
So Cleopas answered and said to Him, "Are You the only stranger in Jerusalem, and have You not known the things which happened there in these days?"
Jesus then said what things?
The man then answered back, but ignorantly demonstrated how his own faith was misplaced. This we come across often amongst ourselves believers.
Anyway, Jesus realised their problem and said to them, "O foolish ones, and slow of heart to believe in all that the prophets have spoken! Ought not the Christ to have suffered these things and to enter into His glory?" Luke 24:25-26. He then used the scriptures and expounded to them the things concerning Himself.
Here is the thing; 2021 my friend don’t be naive. Beware of those men traveling to Emmaus, men who go about fooling around others with vain conversations, empty promises and prophecies, etc.
In our story these disciples’ eyes were later opened, but you may not have that chance yourself to understand scripture as you should, as these two did, who later knew him and returned to the others.
So in 2021, develop your own resilience; commit to your own goals. Focus on what you yourself can control, be realistic, be emphatic, sail through, and don’t blame others.
One good reason you received Jesus is so that He may open the Scriptures to you. Remember, all men could be on the road to Emmaus (lost, off topic) or are slow of heart to believe, but He came to us a Revealer and to give us light.
God bless you,
