Two of Christ’s followers were walking to Emmaus. They were discussing all that had happened when Christ began walking with them, but their eyes were kept from recognizing him. Being blind to God’s presence happened in biblical times and still does today. Mary Magdalene didn’t recognize him standing before her in the garden tomb and Cleopas and his friend don’t recognize him when he is walking alongside.
It was only when Christ opened their eyes that they saw him. How blind we can be at times. Blind to the pain and suffering of others, blind to our own actions and how they impact others. We need to ask God for eyes to see and for his presence to soften hard hearts.
