Luke 24:13-35: The Road to Emmaus – Part VII

Saturday, April 8, 2017

. . . but somehow they did not recognize him . . .

Christ comes to us each morning as we rise, awakening, enlivening, and calling. He tends to us as we prepare for the day.

. . . but somehow they did not recognize him . . .

Christ abides with us as we move through our day, tending to our families, friends, neighbors and colleagues. He remains with us through sorrow and celebration.

. . . but somehow they did not recognize him . . .

Christ visits with us each evening, cajoling, smiling, listening, and laughing. He transforms our worry and shares our joy.

. . . but somehow they did not recognize him . . .

Do we make space in our lives for Christ each morning?

. . . but somehow they did not recognize him . . .

Do we make time for Christ in our relationships throughout the day?

. . . but somehow they did not recognize him . . .

Do we return to Christ each evening as we reflect on all we have done and all we yet hope to do?

. . . but somehow they did not recognize him . . .

Harold Copping: Mary Magdalene at the Sepulcher

Christ is with us in every space and in every moment. Let us remember to welcome him each day, to include him in an active way, and to show him our gratitude and love each evening when we withdraw at the close of each day.

. . . but somehow they did not recognize him . . .

As we journey toward Emmaus on our own Easter journey, we reflect on the encounter between Christ and Mary Magdalene on Easter morning, and we wonder if we do – or do not – recognize our risen Teacher. Use the scripture link here to compare versions of the story of Mary and Jesus on Easter morning. John 20:11-16
