Onyesterday we look at two with their heads hung low on their way home. These twowere sad because they had put their trust in a man who seemed to be dead,Jesus. As they walked Jesus joined them not letting Himself be known unto themand as they poured out their depressed words and actions, Jesus said this.
Luke24:25  Then he{Jesus} said unto them,O fools, and slow of heart to believe all that the prophets have spoken:Here is a stranger talking to these two and He calls them fools and slow toheart to believe; then Jesus begins to expound unto them the scripturesconcerning himself.
Luke24:27  And beginning at Moses and all the prophets, he expoundedunto them in all the scriptures the things concerning himself.
Asthey began to get close to their home Jesus acted as if he were going fartherbut these two urged him, “stay with us! It’s getting late, and the day isalmost over.” Jesus takes them up on their idea and stays. As He sits atthe table with them something happens that changes the way these two areacting. The Bible says that Jesus took bread then He blessed it and then brokeit and gave it to them.
Luke24:30  And it came to pass, as he sat at meat with them, he tookbread, and blessed it, and brake, and gave to them.
Luke24:31  And their eyes were opened, and they knew him; and hevanished out of their sight.
Whatjust happened, these two that were so sad are now glad? The word glad is notmentioned but the actions of these two are, and you’ll have to agree that thesetwo got happy. We are told that these two got up and returned to Jerusalem. Sadpeople don’t run a 7 to 9 mile trip; one had to be glad, happy and excited todo that.
Luke24:33  And they rose up the same hour, and returned to Jerusalem,and found the eleven gathered together, and them that were with them,
Luke24:34  Saying, The Lord is risen indeed, and hath appeared to Simon.
Nowwhat changed these two? If you will look back at verse 30 you’ll find theanswer. Jesus was sitting at the table with them but they still didn’t know itwas Him. Jesus took the bread and gave thanks but they still didn’t realize itwas Jesus. Then Jesus took the bread and brake it.  He gave it unto to them and then these two sawsomething they had missed; it was the hands of Jesus. In those hands were theprints of the nails and then their eyes were opened and they that were sadbecame glad. So glad that they ran back to Jerusalem and found the disciples.While they were there telling the disciples what they had seen all of a suddenJesus Himself stood in their midst. Then notice what happened.
Luke24:36  And as they thus spake, Jesus himself stood in the midst ofthem, and saith unto them, Peace be unto you.
Luke 24:37 But they were terrified and affrighted, andsupposed that they had seen a spirit.
Luke24:38  And he said unto them, Why are ye troubled? and why dothoughts arise in your hearts?
Luke24:39  Behold my hands and my feet, that it is I myself: handle me,and see; for a spirit hath not flesh and bones, as ye see me have. Jesusreveals Himself to His disciples the same way that He revealed Himself to thosetwo that were sad.
Whenyou go to Church this Sunday will you be looking for Jesus to reveal Himself toyou? I sure hope so because Jesus can take a sad heart and turn it into a gladheart. Have a great weekend and be on the lookout for Jesus.
