Luke 24:15 KJV
And it came to pass, that, while they communed together and reasoned, Jesus himself drew near, and went with them.
These were confused and bewildered believers.
• So many of their hopes had been placed in Christ
• So many had been dashed when He had died.
• They are together
• They have heard the reports of his resurrection
• They have seen the empty tomb
But there is only one way their doubts and fears could be healed; through Jesus Himself.
Early on they did not even know it was Jesus. Their deep concerns blinded their eyes to even the One whose death they were grieving.
It is Jesus himself we need.
• Though fellowship is grand
• Though reports of His mercy are encouraging
• Though the Word of God is a blessing
We need Jesus Himself. He alone can heal and strengthen and open our eyes and empower us to change a world.
Give us Jesus Himself.
