Stay With Us

April 26, 2020

Luke 24:13-35

1 – That Same

Meaning of the name Emmaus.

Are you   stubborn  as  a mule? 

Are you a skeptic, hard to convince that something could be true or is true? 

The most well-known disciple who was stubborn about believing was Thomas.  

“Unless I see the nail marks in his hands and put my finger where the nails were, and put my hand into his side, I will not believe.”  John 20:25  

What is hard for you to believe about Jesus, about God the Father, about the Holy Spirit?

It may be hardest when it may costs you something!

It’s most important to believe GOD when it’s hardest to believe!  

 

2 – Jesus Himself 

14 They were talking with each other about everything that had happened. 15 As they talked and discussed these things with each other, Jesus himself came up and walked along with them;  

An example from Job.     Job 19:26-28 

JESUS HIMSELF, and not a stand in, not a look alike, but the very one who died for them, is now alive WITH THEM!!!

Verse   15 As they talked and discussed these things with each other, Jesus himself came up and walked along with them; 16 but they were kept from recognizing him.

Matthew 18:20

Malachi 3:16  (NIV)   16 Then those who feared the Lord talked with each other, and the Lord listened and heard. A scroll of remembrance was written in his presence concerning those who feared the Lord and honored his name.  

Luke 24:16 

16 but they were kept from recognizing him.  

What keeps me from seeing Christ today?

What keeps you from realizing God’s presence in your life?

What keeps you from recognizing that something was NOT JUST a coincidence, but that God is working in your life? 

  Luke 24:17    He asked them, “What are you discussing together as you walk along?”   

 

You should talk about the things of God!   Deuteronomy  11:16-20  and Philippians 4:8

 

3 – We Had Hoped  Luke 24:19-24

Proverbs 13:12

Luke 24:26  Did not the Messiah have to suffer these things and then enter his glory?”

The death of Jesus wasn’t a mistake.

His crucifixion wasn’t an accident.

The spear in His side wasn’t a plan gone bad.

This was Gods plan all along!! 

4 –  Stay With Us

Luke 24:28-29

REV. 3:19-20

19 Those whom I love I rebuke and discipline. So be earnest and repent. 

20 Here I am! I stand at the door and knock.

If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with that person, and they with me.

REV. 3:19-20

19 Those whom I love I rebuke and discipline. So be earnest and repent. 

20 Here I am! I stand at the door and knock.

If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with that person, and they with me.
