Pastor's Post - April
As we approach our Easter Services, we are walking through a worship series that lays out the power of the gospel message. Andy Stanley wrote a book called “Principle of Path”. The main premise of this book is that wherever the road you are on leads, that is where it will take you. Just as you cannot expect to end up in California by taking I-26 east, you cannot expect God’s blessings while walking a road that does not lead to Him.
In Luke 24 we find two disciples walking down the road to Emmaus which was seven miles from Jerusalem where Jesus had been crucified and buried. News of Jesus’ resurrection had traveled among those who believed in Him. As they were walking down the road, they were talking about all the events they had seen and heard relating to Jesus. Suddenly, a man they did not recognize started walking behind them. After spending some time with them, Jesus revealed Himself as the Risen Savior. Notice what the scripture says:
(Luke 24:31-32 NLT) 31 Suddenly, their eyes were opened, and they recognized him. And at that moment he disappeared! 32 They said to each other, “Didn’t our hearts burn within us as he talked with us on the road and explained the Scriptures to us?”
I pray that you find the encouragement and will to seek Jesus on whatever road you are walking today. Ask Him to reveal Himself to you to show you the direction you are going and the strength to make corrections where needed. I am praying for you and your journey!
