The Walk to Emmaus

"Now on that same day two of them were going to a village called Emmaus.  While they were talking and discussing, Jesus himself came near and went with them...their eyes were opened, and they recognized him; and he vanished from their sight.  They said to each other, 'Were not our hearts burning within us while he was talking to us on the road, while he was opening the scriptures to us?' "

The Gospel of Luke 24:13, 15, 31-32

Community Chairperson Message

He (Jesus) asked them, “What are you discussing together as you walk along?”  They stood still, their faces downcast.  One of them, named Cleopas, asked him, "Are you only a visitor to Jerusalem and do not know the things that have happened in these days?"

What things?” he asked.

“About Jesus of Nazareth”, they replied.  “He was a prophet, powerful in words and deed before God and all the people.  The chief of priests and our rulers handed him over to be sentenced to death, and they crucified him; but we had hoped that he was the one who was going to redeem Israel.  And what is more, it is the third day since all this took place.  In addition, some of our women amazed us.  They went to the tomb early this morning, but didn’t find his body.  They came and told us that he was alive.”  Luke 24:17-23

DeColores!  We are blessed because we know this story.  We know the truth with the blessing of the gospel!  I would ask you what are you talking about today.  We’ve all been given the gift of grace.  We’ve also been given the gift of “Walk to Emmaus” experience.  With many of our churches celebrating Emmaus Sunday in February, I would ask you to pray about who you will sponsor and to share “Walk to Emmaus” with those your Heavenly Father puts on your heart.  As part of our 4th day there is nothing more important than sponsorship. 

Here are two videos that might help answer Why Go On a Walk?
