Eyes to see…


 

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.

  1. Yes. May our eyes be always open and looking intently for coming of the Lord.

    Within this story, a favorite part is Y’shuaJesus saying, “And beginning with Moses and all the Prophets, he interpreted to them in all the Scriptures the things concerning himself.”

    Another favorite is “When he was at table with them, he took the bread and blessed and broke it and gave it to them. And their eyes were opened, and they recognized him. And he vanished from their sight. They said to each other, “Did not our hearts burn within us while he talked to us on the road, while he opened to us the Scriptures?” ”

    Lord Bless, Keep, Shine upon you and yours always. . .

  2. Thank you for sharing this. It is very true that our eyes can be blind while in the presence of the Lord. For some, this is even while they are in a Church. I spent 15 years in a church before my eyes were opened to see that what was happening was wrong and I needed God to take the scales off of my eyes. Thank God He does!
