Tuesday, March 13th. Luke 24:13-15

Our devotions this Lenten season have been written by members of Faith Lutheran Church.  Today’s devotion is by George Adams. Also, if you would like to join our staff in praying the liturgy for Responsive Prayer/Suffrages just click here.

 

And behold, two of them were going that very day to a village named Emmaus, which was threescore furlongs from Jerusalem.  And they communed with each other of all things which had happened.  And it came to pass, while they communed and questioned together, that Jesus himself drew near, and went with them.Luke 24: 13-15

 

At my ripe old age, it is obvious to me that Jesus is present as I conduct my daily actions.   Too many times I forget that, but luckily not always.  However, I do not think that I always knew that.

 

I cannot point to a divine event that suddenly and permanently instilled this truth in me.  But I do remember many times when I grasped newer and keener insights into my faith that Jesus is forever with me.  At all of these times, I remember being with at least one other person, and usually with many more.

 

Many of these occasions happened at youth meetings and events when I was in high school.  Others happened during stressful times, in hospitals, visitations or funerals.  Still more happened while at I was at adult retreats, Promise Keepers, and other Christian events.  Some occurred during lunch with friends.  I also grew in faith and belief during very moving worship services.

 

Looking back, I now see that close association with other Christians has always been critical to gaining deeper understanding and commitment to my faith.

 

Let us pray:  Dear Lord, Help us remember that growth in our Faith happens when we seek you in fellowship with others. In Christ’s name, Amen.
