“Now that same day two of them were going to a village called Emmaus.”

Three days after Jesus' crucifixion, two of Jesus' followers are walking along the road to Emmaus. It is seven miles from Jerusalem to Emmaus and it is all downhill. Jesus joins them, but they don't recognize him until they stop for the night and Jesus breaks bread with them.  How often do we travel the journey of life with Jesus accompanying us, and we don't recognize him?  When we experience disappointment in life and things seem to be heading downhill, how often do we fail to recognize Jesus accompanying us and offering comfort? What opens our eyes to the awesome God? Did you get a glimpse of Jesus, like the two on the road to Emmanus? The sermon text is Luke 24:13-35.  The Rev. Mark Clinger preaching.
