Stay With Us

Re: Verse reading – Luke 24:13-35 (day two)
“As they approached the village to which they were going, Jesus acted as if he were going farther. But they urged him strongly, ‘Stay with us, for it is nearly evening; the day is almost over.’ So he went in to stay with them” Luke 24:28-29  What strikes me first about this great story is that although the disciples are kept from knowing who Jesus was, they were captivated by him.  What does that tell us about the nature and character of Jesus?  He was compassionate, he listened as they told them of the events of the past week.  He was knowledgeable and able to teach as he explained the words of the Prophets.  He was certainly compelling for they desired greatly for his company.  Jesus drew people to himself even when they had no idea of his true nature, he does that still.  So that they would truly know the fullness of the Prophets stories, the Lamb that was broken, broke bread with them and their eyes were opened.  What a remarkable story.
