Meeting Jesus

Tonight’s sermon at church was one in a series on discipleship and focused on the Bible. At the end the preacher challenged us all to go home and read the Bible passage again, asking what God wanted to say to us through it.

Luke 13: 13-35 is the account of Jesus meeting two discouraged and downhearted disciples on the road to Emmaus. I have still to go and read this again but what has struck me many times about story is in line with the theme of this blog and links to something the preacher said:

“Jesus met these two at their point of need.” Yes, indeed. And what does he point them to? The word of God. The whole truth about himself, through the whole Scriptures (“beginning with Moses and all the prophets”). What is our resource for life? The Bible. How do we meet Jesus? Through his word, with the help of the Holy Spirit.

May God give us the grace and understanding to know Christ through the scriptures for our own needs and those of the world.
