The story of the two travelers on the road to Emmaus is a wonderful illustration of living our lives inside our day-to-day circumstances and God finding us in our lives and opening our spirits to his Word and guidance.
The Return to Daily Life
Logic and Reason both support our belief in the resurrection; it provides us a firm foundation to build on our faith in our lives. From that foundation, though, we quickly go back into the world of our daily lives and where circumstances can often hold us back and provide the continual flow of urgent happenings in our day-to-day lives.
One of our biggest challenges in life is we think salvation and a relationship with God is a destination – a state in life we will attain when we are worthy of salvation and a relationship we will share at that point with God one day in Heaven.
That may be true, but it is NOT what God created us for – the scripture says he created us for His pleasure and His purpose.
His pleasure is in a relationship with us where we value him daily and live out his love in our lives to fulfill the purpose he has for each of us. God’s purpose for us is not a destination (although that comes with it ); it is a journey through this life that he has provided and blessed us with. Every day, we go out about our way and often take on the day by ourselves. We want to be independent, and yet quickly, the urgent in our daily lives distracts us from God.
As we go through this week, may we look for God in our journey and not just a destination for eternity. We hope to live out His purpose for us so others will see Him in us on their journey.
