Making your life journey count

April 22, 2019 by Deb Graham

That very day two of them were going to a village named Emmaus, about seven miles from Jerusalem…

— Luke 24:13

We’ve all heard it said that life is a journey. And it’s true. But sometimes life’s challenges can cause you to lose hope and even to despair.

In the book of Luke, you and I meet two men whose life challenges had caused them to lose hope. These men were Christ followers, but when Jesus died on the cross, they were stunned. And as they walked to Emmaus, their conversation revealed the depth of their pain and disillusion.

You see, their experience did not match their expectation. Their journey with Jesus had come to a sudden end. They expected more from Jesus… and hoped for something more from God.

But something extraordinary happened to those two men on that journey. A man began to walk with them!  And as they listened to what he said and watched what he did, they soon realized who that man was… Jesus was alive and their hope was restored!

Now, I want to ask you an important question. How is your life journey going? Is it going well? Or maybe you’ve had a rough start filled with crushing disappointments.

Well, through God’s grace and the power of Jesus’ resurrection, this Easter season, you can have a new beginning! Your Savior is alive!

Let him walk with you and he will make your life an incredible journey, one that will count for eternity!
