“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – Luke 24:28-32

TODAY’S WORD…

.

As they came near the village to which they were going, Jesus acted as if He were going farther;

but they held Him back, saying, “Stay with us; the day is almost over and it is getting dark.”

So He went in to stay with them.

.

He sat down to eat with them, took the bread, and said the blessing;

then He broke the bread and gave it to them.

Then their eyes were opened and they recognised Him, but He disappeared from their sight.

.

They said to each other,

“Wasn’t it like a fire burning in us when He talked to us on the road and explained the Scriptures to us?”

.

– Luke 24:28-32 (GNT)

REFLECTION…

.

There are times when we feel so lost and empty, when we cannot even get ourselves to focus and look ahead

and then, suddenly, we come across a passage from Scripture…and it touches us.

What it says to us seems so meaningful, so true, so appropriate for us at that very moment in time.

As we ponder over those words from Scripture, our heart seems to start beating faster

and we feel urged us to open our eyes to those words and to the sense of direction we are being given.

.

It is such moments that can lead us to humbly look closely at ourselves and at our weaknesses,

and to recognise that we need to go back to the Lord and invite Him to enter more deeply into our heart,

to fill us with His love and truth, and to show us the way we should take.

.

It is such moments that lead us to go and reconcile ourselves with the Lord, our God and Saviour,

and to sit at His table and receive His Living Bread – His Body, His Blood, His Blessing.

This is when our eyes will be truly opened to the truth;

our mind filled with understanding;

and our heart set on fire with a burning determination to always love and follow the Lord.

.

PRAYER…

.

Lord, You are the Way, the Truth and the Life!

Forgive me, Lord, I love You.

Come, Lord, I need You.
