Hearts, disciples, Jesus: The Emmaus road

The Bible can be both confusing and comforting, like a puzzle with hidden pieces. In one story, Jesus walks with two of his disciples who are sad because they think he’s gone forever. Even though Jesus is right there with them, they don’t recognize him. He talks with them about the Bible, trying to help them understand why they should still have hope. When they finally see who he is, he disappears. This story shows that sometimes we might feel lost or alone, but God is always with us, even if we don’t realize it at first. It also reminds us that God’s help might come in unexpected ways, like through a simple conversation or a shared meal. Just like those two friends, we can find comfort and hope in knowing that God is always near, guiding us through tough times and healing our hearts.

Christianity Today:

And yet, in certain ways, God is still in the business of concealing himself. “Truly you are a God who hides himself,” says the prophet Isaiah (45:15). Perhaps some grace only works in secret. Perhaps some realities and wounds cause us to become so brittle that anything more than the patient, hidden care of God would crumble us like a dried-out leaf, returning us to the dust that we are. Whatever the reasons, we can trust that our Savior is close. The Great Physician is tending to us with gentle attentiveness and precision, and with the slow patience that allows our deepest healing.
