Journey with the Risen Christ
The last part we see Jesus having fellowship with the two men. Jesus' bodily presence took the bread, blessed and broke it. By this, immediately their eyes opened and they realized that it was indeed Jesus Christ. One second Jesus was a stranger to them and then the next their eyes opened and they realized who He is. This realization experience should be evident to us during Holy Qurbana. We as a community have a direction in our worship, which means we have a focused direction, having our eyes fixed on God. As these two men went towards a direction with Christ, Qurbana should guide us to move towards a direction, and the breaking of bread should enable us to have a humbled experience to acknowledge God's unconditional love that can move us with commitment and joy with the response as these men said “Were not our hearts burning within us". May we be challenged to journey with the Risen Christ with our minds set on things above.
Triune God, help my life journey include You, guide my direction to be Your way, in Christ's name, Amen.
