Seeing Your Life Though the lens of the gospel ~ Luke 24:13-35

Read 1195 Times
1. Jesus joined the despondent disciples and listened to them. “We had hoped…” When you have been upset or disappointed, who has joined you along the road? To whom have you been able to pour out your heart?

Who was a “Jesus person” to you, listening to you in respectful silence? To whom have you been a Jesus person?

2. Jesus then helps them to see things in another light by opening the scriptures to them. When did you have the experience of finding your heart “burning within you” with new hope for the future? Who/What helped you to change after a setback?

3. The disciples invite Jesus to join them at table – there follows a recognition of who he is. We meet many people on the road of life.
Usually we meet and pass on. Occasionally we meet someone whom we invite into our homes, into our hearts, in a deeper way, in a way we had not done before. With whom has this happened for you? Where in these relationships have you experienced the presence of God or of Jesus?
