Walk to Emmaus

Empowering leaders to be the hands and feet of Christ.

I was reading this morning about grace.

It was a picture of a gift and the author told the story of how children so often are more interested in playing with the box rather than the toy that was intended to be the gift.

We are like that as well.

Grace is a gift and yet there are times when we merely skirt the edges of receiving the gift in full. I guess you would say we would rather play with the box.

When our thoughts, our actions, our everyday essence becomes so that we want only what pleases God then Grace touches our lives in unfathomable ways. We are given the ability to live the way God intends us to live. We recognize things that cause sin and we want no more to do with such. We see through eyes and hearts overflowing with love.

And we attach importance to “God in us”.

Has nothing to do with self.

Grace is the most exuberant celebration ever. We will never want it to end. It is always fresh and never boring. It will consume us. We celebrate with songs that never grow old.

Listen, the songs have already begun.


“However, I consider my life worth nothing to me; my only aim is to finish the race and complete the task the Lord Jesus has given me—the task of testifying to the good news of God’s grace.” Acts 20:24

You Lead Lord, …and We Will Follow

We’ve sought Your perfect will
In all that we have done,
And let You LEAD US
As Your MIRACLES unfolded one by one.
We’ve grown in FAITH through each new experience
And praise You for Your precious GRACE,
As we continue our journey, Lord
We seek evermore to see Your face.
As daily we yield ourselves to You
Knowing You will supply all our NEEDS.
Keep ahead of us, we pray
LEAD and GUIDE our days,
So in the future we will continue
On our faith walk…always following YOUR WAYS.

The Walk to Emmaus is that once-in-a-lifetime experience that I look back on and say, with tears in my eyes, “That’s when my life changed.” With songs and laughter still playing in my mind, I remember the warmth of Christian love and fellowship that surrounded me for 72 hours. I am a life-long Christian, but that weekend my faith was reawakened and deepened in a way that I did not anticipate. I understood, maybe for the first time, what it meant to be part of a community of believers “one in heart and mind” as Luke says in Acts 4:32. Emmaus is a prayer-soaked, spirit-led pilgrimage to seek the heart of Christ and His will for our lives. If we truly surrender to Him and allow ourselves to be forgiven and accepted, we can emerge with a new life and a new purpose. De Colores.

“Now that same day two of them were going to a village called Emmaus, about seven miles from Jerusalem. They were talking with each other about everything that had happened. As they talked and discussed these things with each other, Jesus himself came up and walked along with them;”
