HUMILITY // APRIL 5, 2021
Now that same day two of them were going to a village called Emmaus, about seven miles from Jerusalem ... As they talked and discussed these things with each other, Jesus himself came up and walked along with them.
The same day as the resurrection, two followers of Jesus traveled together, perplexed by news of the crucifixion. As they discussed these events, Jesus joined them.
Jesus had just risen from the dead. He had conquered death, hell and the grave. Yet, he did not choose to make a grand entrance. He did not go to the powerful or the popular. He found two of his followers who were unknowns and joined them in their hour of confusion and disappointment.
This passage is a powerful statement on humility. It is not about showing off to everyone but showing up for someone. It is also not about having our names known, but making known the name of Jesus. Who do you know who is in need of encouragement? Who can you show up for today? Without drawing any unnecessary attention to yourself, choose to reach out to them today.
