“Their eyes (of the two disciples on the road to Emmaus) were kept from recognising Jesus.”

For me, this story in Luke 24:13-32 is an account of an incident which is full of meaning. Mind you, the only reason this is so is that the Spirit of God has opened my blind eyes to see what he wants me to see. Over the years since he first began to do so I have read this scripture many times, then only just this morning he has shed more of his marvellous light on it, causing me to see further into it; a bit like walking through his wonderful creation in the rain forests and seeing the vista open up more and more as I progress deeper into it.


As I have said, in reading this story again it struck me afresh that the only reason I can see and understand anything in his spiritual realm is because he makes it possible for me to do so, just as he did for these two saints on the road to Emmaus. They did not recognise who was speaking with them at first; it was only after spending some time with the Lord Jesus that we see in Luke 24:31, “Their eyes were opened and they recognised him.”

In Psalm 119:18 we read, “Open my eyes Lord that I may see wonderful things out of your word”. And again in Luke 4:18 we hear Jesus saying that one of the reasons he came was to bring “recovery of sight to the blind”. Sadly today, so much emphasis in this area of sight, as in the other areas of healing, is placed on the physical, and while there can be no disputing the fact that Jesus did bring sight to the physically blind, nevertheless, it must surely be obvious that it is far more important than having one’s eyes opened to the truth contained in God’s word, the scriptures, which is our record of God’s word.

So, are you still struggling along in the semi-darkness or do you see clearly who the Lord Jesus is?
