Do You Recognize Him?

Now that same day two of them were on their way to a village called Emmaus, which was about seven miles from Jerusalem. Together they were discussing everything that had taken place. And while they were discussing and singing, Jesus Himself came and began to walk along with them. They were prevented from recognizing Him. Luke 24:13-15 HCSB

I am usually good with remembering faces. I can see someone who is a member of our church at a store and I can usually recognize him as being a member of our church, but I have great difficulty in remembering a name. This can be very embarrassing at times when I encounter someone who I should know by name.

These two disciples had obviously spent time with Jesus and listened to His messages and watched him perform miracles, yet they did not recognize Him. These two were not part of the chosen twelve disciples, but they most likely were followers who had spent time being a part of the crowd that traveled with Jesus.

Challenge: Some recognize Jesus as a great teacher and prophet but they do not recognize Him as Lord. Do you recognize Jesus as Lord? As a believer, He is with you every minute of every day. Thank God for His faithfulness to walk with you through both the difficulties and good times in life.
