Κύριος Notes :Who was that any way?


Strength will rise as we wait upon the Lord
We will wait upon the Lord
We will wait upon the Lord
Our God, You reign forever
Our hope, our Strong Deliverer
You are the everlasting God
The everlasting God
You do not faint
You won't grow weary
You're the defender of the weak
You comfort those in need
You lift us up on wings like eagles
C. Tomlin
Scripture Reflection: Luke 24
13Now that same day two of them were going to a village called Emmaus, about seven miles from Jerusalem. 14They were talking with each other about everything that had happened.

They must have been talking about the trial, the crucifixion, the reaction of the crowd, the report of the women who had seen the empty tomb. There was a lot to talk about...what happened their feelings...the crowd...the believers and where they were. I am sure that they did not ever hear someone walking up along side of them.

15As they talked and discussed these things with each other, Jesus himself came up and walked along with them; 16but they were kept from recognizing him.

Isn't it just like you Lord to walk along side these travelers without them knowing it. They were kept from recognizing you. I wonder how many times that this has happened and I just have not known that it was you walking with me all along?

Hebrews is a similar kind of insight.

Hebrews 13:1-2
1Keep on loving each other as brothers. 2Do not forget to entertain strangers, for by so doing some people have entertained angels without knowing it.

I wonder about the entertaining angels unaware. How often does that happen? I am sure that much is kept from me. If I were more aware of the unseen battle that rages, I know I would be distracted and overwhelmed. But the idea of angels being entertained by reaching out to strangers, encourages me and reminds me of the power of God to defend and encourage in ways that I am not even aware of, or will not know about in this life time.

Lord Jesus remind me of your presence with me today.
