Whenever Jesus Joins Our Conversation


Conversation
“For where two or three gather together as my followers, I am there among them.”
Matthew 18:20

One of my favorite chapters in the Bible is Luke 24. It tells the story of Jesus appearing to two of His disciples on the day of His resurrection. The two were perplexed, confused and discouraged concerning the crucifixion and were discussing it on their way to Emmaus. When suddenly, Jesus, who they did not recognize, joined them and asked what they were talking about. As they poured out their grief and disappointment, Jesus began to expound the scriptures explaining why the Messiah had to suffer, die and on the third day rise from the dead. He admonished them for not remembering; He had told them these things while He was with them before His death.

This reminds me of what happens when I meet occasionally with my friend. On these occasions we will meet for lunch or coffee and discuss the topic of the day. But before we start any discussion we remember to thank the Lord for our time together and invite Him to join us. Sometimes we share our personal trials, disappointments, frustrations and the latest world crisis. The mood will darken as we try desperately to analyze the state of affairs. Then suddenly, the discussion takes a radical right as scriptures begin to perpetuate our minds.

We are always amazed how in the midst of a perplexing conversation, the Lord always is faithful to join us with His Word. When we allow Jesus to break in on our conversation, He is ready to break open His Word, illuminating our perspective until it becomes His.

Before we know it, the minutes have turned into hours and it’s time to go our way, with our hearts at peace and joyful with the love He shared that day. Luke 24:32
