Two of them were on their way to a village called Emmaus, seven miles from Jerusalem. Luke 2:13b

 

Their eyes were prevented from recognizing Him. Luke 24:16

 

Was it not necessary that the Christ should suffer before entering into His glory? Luke 24:26

 

Acts 3:1-10, Psalm 105 & Luke 24:13-35

 

If you have ever been on an Emmaus Retreat, you will indentify with today’s message from Luke that describes the “Walk to Emmaus” by two Disciples who were on their way home from Jerusalem after the death and reported rising of Christ. Many of you like me have probably walked the road to Emmaus many times since your weekend asking the LORD this or that seeking the sign you require to fulfill your complete surrender to God and His Son’s Way of faith, charity and love of your fellow man.

 

God instilled in you His grace to complete the weekend and therefore you are living proof of His beckoning of you to become a surrendered follower of His Son’s Truth. Now that you have begun your own walk to Emmaus, remember the Disciples were prevented from seeing Jesus in the beginning of their walk just as you will be prevented from seeing Him in your walk unless you open your heart to find Him in everything you do. What is separating you from your complete surrender to a Life of Christ?

 

When He opens your eyes in the Scriptures, He will in turn open your heart to His face in the people you encounter daily as the sharer of His Gospel to help people find His Redemption and life of complete trust, devotion and commitment to live a life in His care. During this journey, you will begin to find how necessary it was for Jesus to suffer for the sins of humanity and by your practice of reading your Bible daily; you too will live a devotional life of prayer to embrace His calling of proclamation as a natural part of living for His Truth. Amen.

 

Dear God, we pray to recognize Jesus in our won walk to Emmaus by a life of practice, prayer and preaching. Teach us LORD to live by Your Decrees in every step we take. We pray for my children. In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.

 

God Bless His Truth for America,

Romans 8:28

Spirit led God inspired Christ fed

 

Jesus Christ is Risen He is Risen Indeed to Save us- Luke 24:13-35

 

Two began their walk

To their home in Emmaus

Just living the talk

Of the Truth Christ had gave us

 

They were frightened by His death

They were amazed a man knew it not

When approached out of no where

As they walked along not in a trot

 

Eyes shadowed from seeing His face

He asked them what they talked about to state

Surprised He didn’t seem to know the facts

They asked are you the only one who seemed to lack

 

The knowledge of a Savior’s death

How He taught and preached with great respect

Mighty in deed and Word before God

The chief priests and rulers crucified His bod

 

They explained they thought He was the One

To redeem the world from selfishness and fun

The fun of sin is too much to take

He rebuked their own inability to state

 

How the Christ must suffer as the prophets relayed

Many years ago as the Christ did pay

For His glory was predestined by God to say

Jesus must die for the sins of the world’s dismay

 

Then this man relayed the prophet’s thoughts

Without missing a beat to discover the lot

When Emmaus came into sight their hearts were seared

By the Truth He spoke to eliminate their fears

 

They asked Him to stay for it was near night

He agreed and sat to have a bite

He took the bread and said His blessing

Their eyes were opened to the Christ in resting

 

As He appeared from nowhere as the man they walked with

Christ disappeared as quick as they humbly noted

Haven’t our hearts been burning within us?

He opened the Scriptures to know and to assure us

 

Returning to Jerusalem fast paced and gracious

To summon the Eleven to share the LORD’s graces

The LORD has been raised and appeared to Simon

They recounted the steps they took to Emmaus

 

Jesus Christ is Risen He is Risen Indeed to Save us

About Thomas Joe Cruz-Wiggins

My name is Thomas Joe Cruz-Wiggins. I first recognize Christ as my Savior in all things. I am married to my best friend and Soul-Mate in Christ, Antonia Cruz-Wiggins. I am a University of Florida graduate of Public Relations, a US Navy Veteran and a Montessori Elementary School Teacher. I love life and God's help of living it! I follow the Light of Christ in everything I do! I love writing poetry about the Lord and I create a new poem from each Scripture I discern in my daily mediations. You can almost follow the poem by looking at the readings for each day. I started sharing this small yet personal scripture study four years ago when one day I was reading the bible and the Holy Spirit moved me to share the verse with a group of about 40 Christian Men in my Emmaus Ministry who get together weekly to celebrate the Lord and talk about His Truth. Since then the number of people I share my study with has grown to over 650. I enjoy an open loving dialog about anything I write and I have strived to write what I know the Lord wants me to share steering clear of offending anyone’s spiritual beliefs because I share my work with people I meet in public when I strike up a conversation about the Gospel of Jesus Christ. It took almost 2 years to begin writing what the Holy Spirit leads me to say. I believe that all Christians must unite as One Body of Christ’s Love to accomplish the joy of living with love, honor and respect. I reach out to Humanity to share His Salvation be it Baptist, Catholic, Protestant, Episcopal or any other religion or belief. I seek to mirror His Compassion, His Simpleness, His Charity and His Love. While I am Catholic, I believe we must all unite in the Lord to become One Body in Christ to bring our children back to The Church. I am humbled to share my study with you. Please feel free to comment any time. The Gospel of Jesus Christ is my Joy because I am a Disciple of His Truth. I am honored to share my Bible study with anyone you may recommend. As always, I remain, Yours in Christ, Thomas Joe Cruz-Wiggins
