April 18, 2022 – Has Jesus Drawn Near to You?
Sermon: 5780 – The Week After Easter
Pray Over This
“So it was, while they conversed and reasoned, that Jesus Himself drew near and went with them.”
Jesus met the two disciples on the way to Emmaus and He challenged them with the Word of God. It’s important to note that Jesus sought them. “So it was, while they conversed and reasoned, that Jesus Himself drew near.” And He’s done that so many times for you and me. Jesus did not seek them to condemn them or even to condone them but to claim them and to comfort them. And just as the Lord Jesus sought us when we were lost—we didn’t seek Him; He sought us, and we love Him because He first loved us—so He sought these men. Now these men, evidently, were already believers, although they were backslidden and discouraged. If Jesus would seek us when we were outright sinners, surely, He will seek us when we’re saved and away from Him. At some point, every backslidden and confused Christian is met by Jesus in this way—not to be condemned or condoned, but to be comforted and claimed.
Intentionally seek after someone who doesn’t know Jesus this week for the sake of having a Gospel conversation.
