Third Sunday of Easter
 
"Jesus Gives Sight"
 
Focus Scriptures: 

1 Peter 1:17-23    Luke 24:13-35

Jesus walks with two disciples on the road from Jerusalem to Emmaus on the first Easter and they do not expect or recognize him.  Thinking that he is a stranger the disciples share the story of Jesus and invite him to stay eat and rest for the night. When they have their meal Jesus breaks bread and the disciples see him as the risen Christ. Jesus gives sight to the disciples so that they can see the reality of Easter in the breaking of bread in a shared meal. We are called to see Jesus in worship and in every stranger that we meet because we are Easter people.

Jesus Gives Sight

“And they drew near unto the village, where they were going: and he made as though he would have gone further. But they constrained him, saying, Abide with us: for it is toward evening, and the day is far spent. And he went in to tarry with them. And it came to pass, as he sat to eat with them, he took bread, and blessed it, and broke it, and gave to them. And their eyes were opened, and they knew him; and he vanished out of their sight.”  Luke 24: 28 – 31. The two disciples who were going to Emmaus totally missed the greatest story that took place that day – the resurrection of Jesus Christ.  Their hopes were dashed because they were counting on Jesus to rescue them from the oppressive Romans.  They were preoccupied with the death of their master that they did not recognize that Jesus was alive and was walking with them.  Furthermore, they were going in the wrong direction, away from the fellowship of the believers in Jerusalem.  When Jesus sat at the table and broke bread with them their ‘ eyes were opened’ and they recognized the risen Savior.  Sadness, confusion, disappointment,dashed hopes, and frustrated plans may cause us to miss the presence of Jesus in our lives.  Also, we may not be able to see the wrong direction that we are taking – walking away from the strength found in gathering with other believers. Prayer:  Almighty God, Jesus Christ makes Himself known to His disciples in the breaking of bread.  Open the eyes of my faith to see Him in my participation of the euchrist and in my everyday life.  Amen.
