Greetings in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ,


Today I share with you the meditation from Forward Day by Day:


Luke 24:45 Then he opened their minds to understand the scriptures.

Jesus does ordinary things with his friends in this story-he eats, he teaches, he is present. He shows them his hands. Even in their deep joy and profound relief, they struggle with accepting the impossible reality in front of them in flesh and bone. He reminds them that he loves them, and that they are on a mission to tell the world about that love.


Jesus opens their hearts and minds through the words of the prophets. By showing them the nail-scarred and living flesh of his fingers and palms, Jesus reminds the disciples that to believe in the redemption of the world through the love of the Living God made manifest in his life and resurrection is to wholeheartedly believe the unbelievable.


And after he leaves them, they begin to tell this wonderful story, to share this holy and beyond-belief tale of love and redemption. And we are still sharing it, every day.

See Ya Sunday!
