Resurrection Day - 1 Cor 15:12-26
The 2 on the road to Emmaus were hoping that Jesus was going to redeem
Luke 24:30-31 - "Now it came to pass, as He sat at the table with them, that He took bread, blessed and broke it, and gave it to them. Then their eyes were opened and they knew Him…. And they told about the things that had happened on the road, and how He was known to them in the breaking of bread.”
Their hope had faded. They were going home, turning their backs on their expectation. But Jesus calls them back, explaining His suffering and death in the Word. Sitting down to bread with them. Notice he does the same thing in the same order as instituting the Lord’s Supper in the Upper Room during Passover. He took the bread, He blessed God, then broke it, as He gave it to them.
Jesus was known to them in the breaking of the bread.
Let Christ be known to you in the breaking of the bread, in taking the cup
Let Jesus be known to you in His Word, dwelling in you richly
Let Jesus be known to you in your fellowship with one another
Let Jesus be known to your kids as you model His character for them
Let Jesus be known to your neighbors as you shine the light of the risen Jesus among them.
Let Jesus be known to the world, as you break and sacrifice yourselves for others, as Jesus did for you.
Let Jesus be known to the world, as you share the news of the great things Christ has done for you.
Let Jesus be known as you live His resurrection life.
Psalm 16:9-11: "Therefore my heart is glad, and my glory rejoices; My flesh also will rest in hope. For You will not leave my soul in Sheol, Nor will You allow Your Holy One to see corruption. You will show me the path of life; In Your presence is fullness of joy; At Your right hand are pleasures forevermore."
