Minute Sermon 12/25/2022
On that road to Emmaus, I can’t help but think those disciples didn’t actually “know” where they were going. The account in Luke 24 is plain and simple, but there are a lot of missing details that leaves me with questions. After they met Jesus on the road, did they change direction? Did they realize His work was more important than where they had planned to go or what they had planned to do? For a little while at least, they had more questions than answers. We might be a lot like them, sometimes.
It’s OK if we sometimes don’t know what to do next. It is okay to be still, wait, and to pray for guidance. It is not uncommon to just put one foot in front of the other, not knowing what the final outcome will be. When undesirable circumstances present and we don’t know why or what to do, our inability to decide might be more beneficial than we think. Unanswerable questions can direct us to seek the One who knows! We probably won’t find the answer we want at the moment, but what we find will certainly be for the better. DG
