This is our B moment. Our moment to be still…to be fed by the Word of God…to be grateful.
Scripture reference: Matthew 10:32 (ESV)
Today, I am thinking about how we never know who Christ will reveal himself through.
This week, we’ve been talking a lot about our journeys, which reminded me of the story of the two disciples on the road to Emmaus. As the Scriptures say, the two disciples were engaged in a serious discussion about the events that had taken place during the crucifixion of Christ and his resurrection. The men were sad about all that had happened to Christ.
As they were walking and talking, a third man appeared before them, and he questioned them about their conversation. As we read on in Luke 24, we see that this third man was Jesus himself, but the disciples didn’t recognize him because they didn’t have faith in him. It was only after Jesus went home with them and broke bread with them that they recognized him for who he was.
This prompted me to think about all of the ways Jesus reveals himself to us through other individuals that we fail to see. Thankfully, we learn that Jesus was very patient with the two disciples when they failed to see him. He walked several miles with them back to their village. He listened to them. He sat down and had dinner with them.
The question for us is, who is Jesus revealing himself through that we are missing? As we think about that, let us remember these words: “So everyone who acknowledges me before men, I also will acknowledge before my Father who is in heaven.” Matthew 10:32 (ESV)
Please share this reflection as others desire to be inspired.
So today, don’t miss it when Jesus reveals himself to you.
