The CROSS Road at Emmaus

On the road to Emmaus the disciples faced the CROSS Road between knowledge and experience when they encountered the resurrected Christ.

Jesus challenged their unbelief...

"Jesus said to them, “How foolish you are, and how slow to believe all that the prophets have spoken! Did not the Messiah have to suffer these things and then enter his glory?” (Luke 24:25-26)

Jesus opened their eyes through their encounter with Him...

"Then their eyes were opened and they recognized him, and he disappeared from their sight. They asked each other, “Were not our hearts burning within us while he talked with us on the road and opened the Scriptures to us?”  (Luke 24:31-32)


The transition between the revelation of the prophets and the reality of Jesus is a CROSS Road of belief where what we know becomes real!

It is that movement from head to heart, theory to reality, knowledge to experience.  You may call it that 'aha' moment of faith.  A moment when faith and life intersect.  

When was your 'aha' moment of faith?  When did your knowledge of God become an experience of God?

Are you still wandering down the CROSS Road of faith wrestling with unbelief?  Or is your 'heart burning within' because of a divine encounter?  Has God's revelation become your reality?


  1. I was in a gutter, 19, half drunk. I saw the Lord's hands and placed my ripped-to-pieces broken heart into those same hands. He said trust me! I said okay, be gentle Lord.

    1. What a wonderful testimony of grace through a divine encounter with Jesus! Thanks for sharing.
